I second that! rose clay has skin benefits, plus a lovely 'dusty' rose color that looks great in many soaps.

I have also used infused paprika for a peach color, but paprika accelerates and fades with sunlight. It is nice if you need more of a 'brick' color though.

I have powdered red #33 dye and it makes a nice pink when gelled. Ungelled, its more of a dusty rose which is also pretty.

Rose Clay is my number one but don't use too much or it's a weird mauve. But my number 2 is the Neon pink colorant from TKB.

Here is what French Pink Clay can look like. The line has TD added to it so you can see a full range of pink with this clay. Love it!

Pretty soap, Lindy!

I also like rose clay but if I want something a little brighter, I use pink mica from the Conservatorie

I have used pink clay, and the neon pink pigment. I also like using ultramarine pink oxide. I like pink!

I like Magic Pink mica from The Conservatorie for a pastel pink. Ruby Rose mica (used in photo) is also nice for a more rosey muted pink but sometimes I find it gets ash.
