Used extensively in soapmaking as a non-bleeding color, used extensively as well in cosmetics to adjust hues in foundations, blushes, bronzers and similar products.
Because it is a pure pigment, its color intensity is too strong to be used directly on the skin. It should be used as a color additive to a recipe (or you will look more like a green-faced clown than a pretty princess)!

This is another great eye shadow and mineral addition! Add some of TKB's eye shadow base and this stuff is lovely. Also great if you just mix a bit of pearl mica and create art on paper. I love to draw.
This is a lovely deep green pigment. I'll use this to make olive toned mineral cosmetics or to tone down any pink/peach/red tones in commercially bought cosmetic powders. May also work nicely as a redness reducing color corrector, if added with (white) matte mica.
This color is a must for anybody who LOVES their Greens ,this includes me. Very strong and does not disappoint but I noticed something neat about mixing it dry . I made a color mixing Nosy Be Chameleon (small amount), Off Spec White, Chromium Green Oxide,Prussian Blue (a touch) and Silver for an eyeshadow. When finished very thoroughly mechanically blending, it looked like a measly light grey with green hilites. Something bizarre happened as it sat over night . The next day when showing off my new colors (I wanted to hide this one) it had turned into the most amazing vivid lush deep Sea Green that I have ever seen. It is like the green strengthened overnight . I know , it sounds kooky but it happened . I must upload a picture if its okay . TKB Responds: Send it to me at email@example.com, sounds cool!
I used this green for a swirl in cold process soap, worked well, I would describe this as a matte "kelly green" in cold process. Folks in the south might also call it "John Deere" green. :) By any name it is a beautiful shade and dependable for CP.
The color is beautiful! I am going to try and get creative with it. But when mixing with polish it has tiny clumps that I cant get out. tried using a mortar and pestle try putting a little bit in base and slowly mixing it in even tried letting it sit for day, days, week, & weeks and it still got tiny clups and very gritty. I will update with any results from other attempts to use.
