Compared to FD & C Dyes, lake dyes are less likely to migrate between layers of MP soap. If product design has layered colors, overuse of this dye will cause colored layers to migrate or “bleed” between layers. Does not affect product pH. Dispersible in oil. It is insoluble material that tints by dispersion.

Melt & pour soap: mix with glycerin then add to the melted soap base

Bath Bombs: Add lake to dry ingredients. Bath bombs will become colored when base becomes moistened. Use poly sorbate 80 at a rate of 2 to 1 oil to poly. to avoid dye rings on your tub. For a more natural alternative to poly sorbate 80, our plant-based emulsifier or our castor oil Turkey Red can be used, however usage rates may vary.

Lakes are produced from the FD&C Dyes and are oil dispersible (but generally not oil soluble) and can be mixed with oils. They can also be dispersed in other carriers such as propylene glycol & glycerin, 

INCI: CI15850 (Red 40 Lake)
