Soap making, Green colour

We use herbs and plants for the natural colouring in Kalleo handmade soaps. The green of Patchouli and Moringa stands out pretty well in our soaps; however it appears in three kind of differently toned colours.

There are different methods to colour the soaps. We use various parts of the herbs and plants – the leaves, stems; the beans from Moringa tree. Most of the time, we dry the leaves and turn them into either:

Powder form,

There are a lot more alternatives to colour your soaps green naturally – you might want to try out pandan juice, spirulina powder, spinach juice.. 🙂

Thanks for dropping by!

Regards and cheers 🙂 🙂
