I mixed the color with titanium white in CP soap as I was looking for pink. Titanium white added to lye soap this color added at trace. It came out a wonderful pink. Did not notice any speedup in trace or other negatives.
I tested this yesterday in cold process soap and the end result is a more orangey coral but still really nice.
