This is an aluminum lake mixture of D&C Red No. 27 aluminum lake and FD&C Blue No. 1 aluminum lake.  This mixture is exempt from certification because this is a mixture and not a straight color additive.  Because both of these aluminum lakes are from FDA certified lots, this mixture can can be used in final products and remain within FDA guidelines.

Regulations for mixtures exempt from certification in the Code of Federal Regulations Title 21 part 80.35 (b):
§80.35   Color additive mixtures; certification and exemption from certification….
(b) Color additive mixtures exempted from certification. A color additive mixture prepared from a previously certified batch of one or more straight colors, with or without any diluent that has been listed in part 73 of this chapter for use in mixtures, shall be exempt from batch certification if the straight color used has not changed in composition in any manner whatsoever since its certification and if it is simply mixed with the approved diluents for exempt mixtures. The label of such color additive mixtures shall not bear the lot number assigned by the Food and Drug Administration to the certified straight color components, but shall bear the manufacturer's control number through which the history of the straight color can be determined."

Water insoluble.  (read further if you want to use in water application)

Aluminum lakes are vibrant looking and do not require blooming, as water soluble dyes do. You must use polysorbate 80 at a rate of 1.5-2% of your total batch weight when using lakes in liquid soap or in bath bombs.  This will suspend the color and evenly distribute it properly.  If using in bath bombs, the polysorbate 80 will eliminate "floating" color powder and incorporate it into the water.
