Usage Rates/ Formulation Notes (Beet Powder)

Beetroot Powder has a catchy, bright deep pink colour but it doesn’t come out the same in soaps. Below is a guide on how to pre-mix and use Beetroot Powder to colour soap. We highly advice that you first do a small test-batch or batches with different quantities of Beet Powder to confirm that you like the final soap colour – before colouring a bigger soap batch with Beetroot Powder.

For Cold Process Soap Making: Add some Beetroot Powder to your oil(s), and then the stick-blend to get it properly dispersed in the oil. *NOTE that Beet Root Powder turns bar soaps between yellow and brown colour, depending on the quantity of powder used. The soap gradually  fades to a gray or brown colour. 

For Melt and Pour Soap Making: Add some Beetroot Powder to a small amount of  Vegetable Glycerin. The resulting colour is between a deep pink colour to Purple coloured oil.
