A classic, basic blue pigment.

 

Historically, ultramarine blue was made by grinding down the semi-precious stone, lapis lazuli.

 

For cosmetic manufacture, however, ultramarine blue is manufactured in the lab. Kaolin (China) Clay, sodium carbonate and sulpher are mixed together and heated in a kiln to get the characteristic blue shade.

 

The "raw" blue is then treated to remove impurities.

 

If you work with Ultramarine Blue, please note that the color can develop a "rotten egg" smell due to the presence of sulphur. This smell develops if the pH is above 6. To eliminate, keep the pH below 6 or add an acid resistant, and keep your pH above 6.5.  It does disappear in time as the soap cures.

 

Soap Stability:  Stable in cold process soap, and melt and pour soap. 

 

Health Canada Approval: Eyes, Face and Nails, NOT lips.
