A vibrant yellow, certified for use in - Food, Drugs & Cosmetics , in amounts consistent with current Good Manufacturing Practices and all the other standards set forth for this particular product.  

Cosmetic Use - In Cosmetics, the color additive can not not be exposed to oxidizing or reducing agents or any other conditions which may affect the integrity of the color.
When making bath bombs, bubble bars or bath salts, or any product you'll be enjoying in the water in a tub or shower, we suggest using polysorbate 80 in your liquids stage at a typical rate of 1-2% to help prevent the color from adhering to tub surface. Always test!
Aluminum lakes are oil dispersible but not oil soluble or water soluble.
This is a highly loaded Lake color, and  has been certified at 38% total dye load.  The FD & C Yellow # 5 Aluminum Lake, and our other Lakes and Dyes,  is authorized for use in cosmetics, nail polishes, melt and pour soaps, cold process soaps. It is also perfect for use in textiles - like dying wool. Experiment and use it in a variety of ways for a beautiful  vibrant yellow .
In Drugs & Cosmetics - colorants are approved for use including those intended for use in the area of the eye.
DIRECTIONS:  The FD & C Yellow No. 5 Aluminum Lake Powder is a fine yellow powder that 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 may cloud or become opaque in most clear bases. A pastel yellow color is achieved in white or off white bases with medium concentration.
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 Yellow 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 highly concentrated and heavy dye load. This Yellow # 5 is 38% dye loaded, so 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.
Using too much dye may cause staining while manufacturing and when final product is used.
Always test your final product to insure optimal performance with no staining. 
Always keep a retained sample to ensure optimal long term quality and shelf life and for later comparisons

    Great for Bath BombZ

    This yellow lake surpasses one I have been ordering for years. I love that a certification paper comes with it, it is in a JAR at 4 oz not a bag, and the price was great. The shipping for this one item alone was a bit much, but was still cheaper than a popular competitor! Thank you for a great product!
