It may fade out as the soap cures. I've had that happen with some types of milk soaps - particularly breast milk, it will be lovely creamy on the outside but when I cut it there is a green tinge. It always cures out. Give it some time and let it finish doing the behind the scenes chemistry.

Yes that’s what I was thinking that it may fade out as it cures. Thank you!
