When making bath bombs, liquid soap, bubble bars or bath salts, polysorbate 80 must be used to properly disperse color in water. Use in the liquid stage at approximately 2%. This is because the aluminum lakes are oil dispersible but not oil soluble or water soluble. Using polysorbate will help eliminate the powder ring or floating powder.
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.
Colorants, which are subject to batch certification regulations MUST be batch certified or they ARE NOT PERMITTED TO BE USED IN PRODUCTS INTENDED FOR SALE. If you buy dyes or aluminum lakes and you create and sell your products in the United States, those powders must be batch certified or you are breaching fda regulations.

Best company ever to work with! VERY helpful & fast shipping!
So blown away with this lake colorant! So easy to use and created the most amazing and vivid color for my bath bombs! I wish I would have had this when I first started out years ago! I use it for all my pink and mix it with blue lake to make purple. Just ordered purple lake and can’t wait to try it as well!
I'm crazy for this color and will be ordering more! It makes different hues of hot pink. I love combining it with a lime green for a neon-like, colorful bath bomb!
This color is so vivid, I bought some mica online and barely had any color. I read some online tips on how to get great color in your bathbomb and they left this site as a suggestion to get these lake dyes and it is the best!!!
