Lakes are very concentrated! A little goes a very long way. Dye can stain hands, counter tops, or anything it touches. Wear gloves and protect all work surfaces.
Cold Process Soap: Lakes are not recommended for CP soap. They tend to morph, migrate into other colors, and bleed.
Liquid & MP Soaps: Lakes can be premixed in glycerin then added to liquid and melt & pour soaps. be sure to mix very well or you may end up with colored powder speckles in your soap!
Bath Bombs: Lakes don't need to be bloomed like dyes do and they're super easy to use! Only a small amount is needed. We recommend using a .15cc mini scoop and add color slowly until you reach your desired shade. you may also premix the lake in a small amount of glycerin before adding to your bath bomb mix to prevent speckling.
Use Polysorbate 80! Polysorbate 80 should be used with lakes at half your oils to prevent a ring around the tub or staining. For example, if your oils = 3 teaspoons use 1.5 teaspoons of polysorbate 80.
