Chlorophyllin (copper chlorophyll), the water soluble form of chlorophyll, is used as a color additive in foods, drugs and cosmetics. The improved stability and brightness of copper chlorophyllin leads to its much wider use than chlorophyll as a food color. It produces a blue green shade when diluted in water and is frequently blended with curcumin to provide lime green tints. Resulting colors range from pale to dark green to bluish green, it is widely used in cosmetics, dry citrus drinks and toothpaste.
The person who tested this product for us in soapmaking reports: Color ranges from bluish green to ocean green, it is pourable and easy to measure. Although the product has its own particular smell, there was no smell whatsoever in the finished soaps, it speckled slightly in soapmaking but this can be eliminated by additional beating with a stick blender or by straining the base. The finished soaps had a beautiful lawn green shade. This product was tested in CP and HP soapmaking.
The substance chlorophyllin has been used orally as an internal deodorant and topically in the treatment of slow-healing wounds for more than 50 years without any serious side effects.
Internal Deodorant: Observations in the 1940s and 1950s found that topical chlorophyllin had deodorizing effects on foul-smelling wounds which led clinicians to administer chlorophyllin orally to patients with colostomies and ileostomies in order to control fecal odor.

Chlorophyll does not contain chlorine, this is a mistaken assumption. It may also be called Chlorella and Wheat Grass. Most of the chlorophyll supplements for internal consumption sold elsewhere may contain other additives such as glycerine, peppermint oil and potassium sorbate to make the product palatable. What we?re offering is undiluted chlorophyllin in its purest form.

Beautiful, brilliant green but...
I used this in Cold Process soap making and was very pleased with the outcome. It did not increase trace or cause any trouble during the process and the end result was beautiful. However, a while after my soaps had cured I noticed the beautiful green started to turn an ugly muddy yellow. I'm still not sure why this happened, none of the other colors (a blue mica and annatto) were affected. The previous reviewer did not mention this so maybe my soap curing room was too warm? Once the soaps are used, the green comes out again after the surface of the soap washes off.

Lovely Natural Color!
I've always just used regular liquid chlorophyll to color some of my soaps, but thought I'd try this. It made an incredible green in my CP soap! It is much thicker than normal liquid chlorophyll, and I used just a 1/2 tsp (in 6 lbs fats/oils) and it made it nice and dark and lovely little flecks of color throughout! I diluted the rest of my 1 oz bottle by putting the remainder into a 4 ounce amber bottle and filling it with distilled water. Very pleased with this product!
