I suspect you're either using too little or you're not using the right micas. I add Kaolin clay and TD to most of my batches and I've never had an issue with coloring my soap in purples or other colors.

I use different ingredients because I like different properties in my soap. 100% coconut oil soap is too drying for my and my customers' taste. It took me a long time to come up with my preferred soap recipe.

Is this what you're trying to make?? This color? You may want to get some mica just for soap. See ingredients list in link
