This color has been certified at 3.9% total dye load. If this item is stored in an airtight container with extremely limited exposure to humidity, it will not expire.
Use latex or nitrile gloves and protect the surfaces you are working on, as these colors are very concentrated and will stain clothes, countertops and hands.
These colors will likely bleed in soap. Lakes need to be protected from humidity. Humidity exposure may decrease the dye load significantly, so open the jar just before use, then close container securely once you've taken what you need from the jar. Lake will not expire or decrease dye load in this way.
When making bath bombs, bubble bars or bath salts, we recommend using polysorbate 80 in the liquid stage at 1.5 - 2% of the TOTAL batch. This is because the aluminum lakes are oil dispersible but not oil soluble or water soluble.
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. Please see blog post for important information: "FDA Regulations - What Colors Are Allowed In Bath Bombs".
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.
I like these the only complaint that I would say is I can't seem to reach the deep colors I'm not really sure exactly how much to add to do so but I put quite a bit of lakes into my products and somehow I still reach a medium blue to pastel. The shipping was very fast. And I love the cute little gift that you get inside and how they personalized the box for you nice touch.
I have never used lakes before. And it was so easy to use.
I really like this color. I used it for my bath bombs. I had no problems with it blending into my mix.
This color was exactly what the description said it would. It works perfectly for my bath bombs. I will be ordering this again
Excellent and love the color.
