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.
I've used this to make light and dark colored bath bombs. The color stays strong, makes the bath water look amazing and the color washes down the drain and doesn't leave any staining. LOVE> LOVE>LOVE. Mad Micas has the best lakes and dyes. They really stepped our bath bomb game up a notch!
I’m relatively new to using lakes but this one is incredible!
Love this lake! Was very easy to use as this was my first time using lakes. Love how easy it was to adjust the color to my liking. My bath bomb came out beautiful.
This is an awesome product! So easily incorporated into my bath bomb mix, vibrant and awesome! Thank you so much!
