Annatto seed powder can be used as a natural soap colorant. It will give a yellow to orange, depending on the concentration used. To use in cold process recipes, add 1 tablespoon to 1/2 cup warm oil and steep for 1 hour. Strain and use the colored oil as part of your oil phase. The color achieved for a 5 pound batch of soap will be deep orange. To achieve a yellow-orange tone, cut the amounts mentioned above in half. You can also add the annatto directly to the lye water phase. Stir well into hot lye water, and proceed with your recipe as normal. It is packaged in a 5 mil thick stand up pouch with a resealable zip top in 4 oz amounts. This item is unable to be sent internationally.
