A classic, vibrant Blue lake Colorant, popular  for so many uses and products - from bath bombs and other cosmetics to dying textiles like cotton or wool.

FD & C Blue # 1 is used in 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.

Physical Form: Vibrant Blue fine Powder

Solubility: Insoluble.  Dispersible in oil. Try dispersing in glycerin for products used in water systems.
Storage: Keep product away from humidity, in room temperature and in an airtight container always.
Shelf Life:  Indefinite if stored properly in a sealed airtight container.

Our Lakes are very concentrated - this one is 40% dye loaded, so a  little goes a LONG WAY.

    Second time ordering lakes from this company and again they did not disappoint. Not only are the colorants top notch, but the 4 oz jar (NO BAGS) is a wonderful price. Ordered blue lake 1 and yellow 6 this last time and they perform absolutely beautiful in our bath bombs.

    I was luckily enough to be one of the first ones to purchase this product. Let me just say there is no need to go anywhere else for Blue 1 lake. The dye load is OUTSTANDING! I highly recommend this lake for bath bombs.
