When making bath bombs, bubble bars or bath salts, we suggest using a surfactant such as polysorbate 80 in your liquids stage at a typical rate of 1-2%. Aluminum lakes are oil dispersible but not oil soluble or water soluble.
Perfect for using in your custom cosmetics, nail polishes, melt and pour soaps, cold process soaps, for dying textiles and has a wide range of uses and applications, Experiment and use it in a variety of ways for a beautiful vibrant blue .
DIRECTIONS: Powder disperses best in oil and oil based products. For dry products, add the needed amount of the colorant powder to the dry ingredients. Incorporate color to formula by adding very small amounts at a time. The colorant can also be used in water based products, by first being dissolved in liquid USP / food grade glycerin.
Color: This colorant produces a beautiful vibrant color in clear bases, but will cloud or become opaque in most clear bases. A pastel blue color is achieved in white or off white bases.
Color Migration: When compared to FD & C Dyes, most of the lake dyes are less likely to migrate between layers of melt and pour soap. If your soap or other product has layers of colors, like layered soap, over use of the dye may cause colored layers to migrate or “bleeding” between layers. Try different methods and experiment.

Our Lakes are very concentrated - a little goes a LONG WAY. To protect hands, use latex or nitrile gloves. Protect the surfaces you are working on, as these colors are very concentrated and will stain counter tops, wood, clothing.
