colorants, natural

The following is a list of all natural soap colorants for soap and other bath products. The natural-ness of soap and bath products is literally ruined by the usage of un-natural colorants. We and other soap makers create these natural vegetable oil based soap, scented with essential oils, then add synthetic colorants. That leaves us with the option of natural ones.
