Default red oxide bleeding

Hi,

Im using Iron oxide Red in my soap because the blogs say its the best for red and shouldn't bleed. Well it did a lot. I can live with the look of the soap, but when I used it, it came out red in the bubbles too!!!! I have a lot of garbage now. what can I do to prevent this next time???

thnaks

red oxide will make brick like red more like orange. you just put too much of it, I use mica for red. Oxide will bleed when is too much of it

IrishLass (one of the mods) suggested I use a specific red from tdk, Is glycerin based, and it has worked perfect both for CP and MP. I love it.

I asked because my HP soaps last Christmas looked so pale, and I hated that.
