Learn to Color Soap Naturally with Indigo (Indigofera tinctoria)
Indigo comes in many “flavors” that cause confusion and frustration for soap makers. With the various botanicals that are generically called “indigo” and the fact that Indigofera tinctoria comes in two forms, it’s no wonder novice to advanced soap makers can scream in frustration with this amazing natural colorant. Let’s silence those screams and get back to enjoying a lovely natural bath!
This Master Class LIVE series consisted of three seminars that explain all things Indigo. The live classes concluded on October 28th, 2022, and the replays are now available. Here’s a short list of everything that’s included in the replay:
- Details on the botanical, why it’s green, why it’s blue, how to “maybe” extract blue from the green powder (and why I say don’t bother)
- Explore over a dozen colors you can obtain with Indigofera tinctoria in cold process soap.
- See color shifts from milk and the gel phase.
- Learn my micro batching soap color testing process (recipe and formulation included!!)
- A rather unexpected chat on cafeteria trays.
- Watch as I admit a giant fail and how it was saved on Day 3.
- BONUS CONTENT:
- Explore the butterfly swirl design with two butterfly soaps
- My favorite double butter soap recipe with a creamy dream lather
To make this a true master class, I’ve included color updates at 1 week old and fully cured. PLUS lather tests to verify if they bleed, stain, or color the lather.
