I have a terrible time my salt scrubs turning different colors. My pink eventually turns orangy and my green turns brownish green. I use tbktrading soap colors, but it seems to do the same when I use a liquid color. Does anyone else have this problem? Your comments are appreciated.

I color mine with mica colorants and don't have a problem with fading or morphing. I use Nurture Soap Supplies Micas mostly.

Could most probably be due to the fragrance oil, try to do a batch and leave one of the jars without any fragrance to see if it's causing it. If that's the case you might want to try a vanilla color stabilizer since fragrances containing higher percentages of vanillin tend to discolor the formula over time.
