Turmeric powder is an excellent natural colorant for all your soap, skin and bath products! We are proud to stick in our natural lane of products by introducing natural colorants.
Turmeric powder is Co2 extracted using alcohol as the solvent. This creates a vibrant yellow powder that does not smell like turmeric, so no worries trying to work around the smell!
Don’t stop at just colorant, though. Turmeric powder is an excellent skin brightening agent, so consider using this in your face mask. This would blend well with our Coconut Milk Powder and Bentonite Clay to make a great yellow mask! Or you can blend in some Activated Charcoal to make a detox mask, just know the color will be a little muddy looking, but fantastic on your skin!
Are you new to using natural colorants for your soaps? Well, we have a wonderful book available to you from Kandra Churchwell, a natural soap maker from Arizona. She has done all the research for you and has wonderful information on how to get all the colors of the rainbow using just natural based colorants! Those books sell for $24.95 each and are totally worth it! You can add one to your cart now, or pick one up if you come into the shop.
You can create natural colorants for your soap, skin and bath products by extracting these into either oils or water, and you can do it via a fast method or a slow method. Kandra’s book covers everything you need to know!
Turmeric powder colorant is sold in ½-pound biodegradable bags, 1-pound biodegradable bags, 5-pound biodegradable bags, and 25-pound sizes. Any orders larger than 250-pounds please email us for pricing.
