"Bright Green - This is a fantastic green. I have had great success with easily getting different shades of green with this dye. It's become my favorite. I've used it in bath bombs and bubble scoops." - Sharon S.

FDA Certified For Use In: Because this is a blend of FD&C certified lots of color, it is exempt from FDA certification per FDA Code of Federal Regulations Title 21 part 80.35 (b).

Usage Notes: Dyes may appear drab or look like the wrong color before being bloomed, and must be bloomed before being incorporated into your medium (see our blooming instructions, below). Please don't panic without testing a small portion in water!
A little goes a LONG WAY; please 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 Usage: Stable in soap, but may bleed. Ideal for liquid soap: Simply blend the dye in water before adding to your liquid soap recipe.
- Bath Bomb Usage: Dyes are water soluble and thus Polysorbate 80 is NOT necessary in your recipe. 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. This should balance the pH levels and give you an accurate color. Note that you can add bloomed dye to baking soda first so that you do not activate your citric acid, but we highly recommend following your bath bomb instructions for use.
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 also add dye powder to a medium and use a spray bottle to spray water onto powder to bring out the brilliant dye color.
This dye is amazing I love the color it gives my bath salts
This is a fantastic green. I have had great success with easily getting different shades of green with this dye. It's become my favorite. I've used it in bath bombs and bubble scoops.
This color is one of my favorites. It’s fresh and bright
This was the first dye I ever used from Mad Micas, and it’s great! Easily bloomed in glycerine and it’s easy to get the shade you want by adding less or more for your products.
This green was exactly what I was looking for. I added in a touch of yellow for more of a lime green when needed as well and a touch of blue for a teal. It was perfect for my bath bombs.
