Compared to FD & C Dyes, lake dyes are less likely to migrate between layers of MP soap.

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.
