How to dissolve your dye

This is a water soluble dye and should be dissolved in water & mixed thoroughly before use.  Add small amount of water to a condiment cup. Use a tiny spoon (like a 0.15cc mica spoon) to transfer dye to the condiment cup. Stir with tiny whisk until it’s fully dissolved.

Powdered colors for bath bombs, bubble bars, soaps, whipped soap & any other project that is water based.

When using to color bath bombs & bubble bars, you will need to bloom your colors in baking soda.

Color Blooming

Pour the dissolved & mixed dye into your desired amount of baking soda. Use some of the baking soda to "wipe out" the condiment cup so no dye is wasted. The baking soda soaks up the dissolved dye easily. Use the bloomed baking soda in your recipe. You can bloom just what you need or you can bloom a larger amount for future use.

*Poly 80 is not required, but please do your own testing.

Batch Certification

This is a batch certified dye that is approved by the FDA for use in cosmetics made for resale in the USA. The FDA states that any use of a dye in a cosmetic product requires a batch certificate # to ensure you are receiving unadulterated product. The FDA rules apply to anyone selling handmade bath & body products to the public. All bags are labeled with the information you need to stay in compliance with the FDA. Remember to keep & record your batch numbers for labeling/record keeping purposes.
