"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.
Note: This dye appears orange-brown in powder form, but turns a vibrant bright green once bloomed (instructions below).

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.
What a funny color to start. But wow did it turn, or should I say BLOOM, into a beautiful green for my bath bombs & bubble scoops.
A little goes a long way! Dispersed quickly and fills the water with bright beautiful green. Do recommend!
I bought this and other colorants from the bathbomb safe menu. This is a niiiice green. And the fact that Mad Micas gets their colorants certified makes me feel comfortable and a consumer who plans on selling their bathbombs knowing I can confidently back my product under FDA guidelines. Also a little goes a very long way. I added an 1/8th of a teaspoon of green dye powder to a tablespoon of distilled water. Mixed that up then blended with a cup of baking soda. Gorgeous color! This will little 1 oz. Jar will go a long long way. :)
Used it for my bath bombs and shower steamers. A little to a lot created some great colors.
This dye is amazing I love the color it gives my bath salts
