Activated Charcoal for black color


Recommended Posts

I am still learning here and want to make a clear, black tinted soap. Will activated charcoal do the trick, and if so, where can I get it at a good price. Walgreen's has it, but it's $20 a bottle!

I know I can order black iron oxide, but of course I'm in a rush to make these Halloween soaps. :cheesy2:

I tried the same as the poster above me, it was awful and way scratchy.

Exactly. I was worried to use it in my soap. I did have luck using cocoa powder mixed in a tiny bit of water. It turned out a very dark brown. With the natural scent of the cocoa and the vanilla FO I added, it turned out really nice.
