INSTRUCTIONS:

Dyes may appear drab or even look like the wrong color until it is bloomed.  You must "bloom" the dye before incorporating into your medium for optimal color release.  Don't panic until you have tested a small portion in water.

A little goes a LONG WAY, so keep this in mind when using.  Use latex or nitrile gloves and protect the surfaces you are working on, as these colors are extremely concentrated and will stain clothes, counter tops and hands.

SOAP:  Stable in soap, but may bleed.  Ideal for liquid soap:  Simply blend the dye in water before adding to your liquid soap recipe.

HOW TO BLOOM A DYE:

Take a small amount of dye and add enough water to dissolve the dye powder. Stir or swirl to assist dissolving.  

You can use the dye in liquid form directly into your medium or you can add baking soda to the liquid dye and mix thoroughly until evenly colored.  Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is alkaline and can change some colors to an unexpected color.  If this happens, add a half part citric acid to your baking soda part.  This will balance the pH levels and give you an accurate color.  

To see the most accurate color of the dye is what the dye looks like in water.

What is FDA Batch Certification?

Mad Oils, Inc (parent company of Mad Micas) has been repack certified.  This means that we are certified by the FDA to repack our larger quantities into smaller containers.  Every lot that comes in is sampled and sent to the FDA for testing at their lab, after which a new Lot Number is issued to us, and a certificate is sent with dye load and other lab information. We issue our batch number at that point, and the FDA Lot and our Batch are put on every jar before it is sold.
