Color: Produces a brilliant, clear “stain glass” color in clear
bases. A pastel color is produced in opaque (white) bases. When used in
bath salts and fizzies, water color will become tinted.
Product pH: Color not effected product pH.
Color Fading: This dye is light sensitive. A UV Inhibitor has
been added to the liquid dye to help prevent fading in soaps and
lotions. It appears that this has limited effectiveness in cp soap due
to the high pH of the saponification process. If using this color in
the powder form, your formula will likely need the Crafter’s Choice UV
Liquid Color Stay or Benzophenone 4 to prevent color fading.
Color Migration: If product design has layered colors, this dye will migrate or “bleed” between layers.
Physical Form: Dark Yellow Liquid.
Soluble in Water
Water, Propylene Glycol, Benzophenone-4, Triethanolamine, Tetrasodium EDTA, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Yellow 5.
Recommended Use Level:
Add color to base, drop-by-drop. Use amount as desired. Adding more drops will produce a darker color.
Soap: You have used too much color if your soap bubbles are not
white. Adding this color to white soap will produce a pastel colored
bar of soap.
Lotions: You have used too much color if your lotion is not white when rubbed into the skin.
