Color: This colorant produces a beautiful vibrant pink/red. Blend easily with other colors to achieve all kinds of spectacular tints. Make purple by blending the Red 27 with our FD&C Blue No. 1 aluminum lake.
When making bath and body product like your favorite 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 a surfactant / emulsifier like 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! Not approved for around the eyes
D&C Red 27 Lake is authorized for use in cosmetics, nail polishes, melt and pour soaps, cold process soaps. It is also perfect for use in art, and even textiles, like dying wool or cotton. Experiment and use it in a variety of ways for a beautiful vibrant pink red. Different amounts will produce many different shades. Blend with other colorants to get exactly what you are looking for.
Directions: D&C Red 27 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 or food grade glycerin.
Color Migration: When compared to D&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.
