Comments: Love your products - just want to mention I used this beautiful blue in my cp soap today. After adding Ocean Rain FO (and nothing else) I instead got a cool magenta! Very pretty but, I was hoping for blue dolphins. Thought this info might be helpful.
FNWL Response: Thank you for your feedback, Linda. Though this is the standardized FDA Blue, sometimes it does take a little experimentation when soaping with the mica powders to achieve very specific shades. This is a very broad guess, but I am wondering if the specific hues of the vegetable oils that you used in combo with the FDA Blue Mica may have impacted the final color of the soap.

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
