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.
Love the wonderful purple water effect.
I love not having to guess ratios of blue to red/pink to create a consistent purple color and am most familiar with using lakes, so happy to find this blend! I'm using it to color lavender vanilla & blackberry sage bath bombs the perfect hues of purple!
Using this in our salts and bath bombs. Simply outstanding purple. LOVE IT!
Love this shade of purple!!
This is beautiful true purple. I makes my bath bombs look so vibrant.
