I have to order some things from WSP this week, has anyone used a purple from them that doesn’t morph. I’ve tried 4 different ones, that they claim are CP stable, and they’ve all morphed into a grayish color. Looking to make a Lilac scented soap, and need a decent purple 😞

Have you tried mica from Nurture Soap? They show pictures of how the soap looks using their mica.

I have not, I will look, but since I currently am placing an order at WSP for needed items I get from them, I was hoping someone had some experience with a decent purple from them

I recommend Nurture Soap or Mica and More. Both have colors that are spot on. I didn't like many of WSP's colorants.

I have used nurture soap micas and they are very good. You can also try "just Pigments" I have used several of their purples without a problem or "mad micas".

I think most purples will gray if used in small amounts. Try making a layered bar with different rates of purple mica per layer to see if just coloring at a higher rate might work better. I use about 1/2 tsp mica in a swirl using 1 cup soap batter. Currently I am using Ultraviolet and purple vibrance for Nurture and like them both. I rarely try to do an all over purple color just because of how easy it is to grey.
