Blue 1 dye colorant makes a brilliant blue color in bath bombs and melt and pour soaps. Our Blue 1 has a 91% dye load.
Our Blue 1 dye is batch certified. Batch certification information is available on each jar of dyes and lakes that are sold by Nurture Soap. Mixtures are made from certified lots of colors and do not require certification of the final mixture per the FDA.
You can get many shades of colors from just a few colors using dyes. For example, D&C Red 27 and FD&C Blue 1 make purple. Try it with our color blender.
Dyes need to be activated with water to become the color they are meant to be. For example, our green dye will be an orange powder until it is activated with water.
We love dyes for melt and pour soap! To use, activate a small bit of dye with water and add to MP. Dyes color the soap very well and remain translucent in clear MP.
You can use dyes for bath bombs in different ways:
(1) Activate with water and bloom the dye. You can bloom by adding water to the dye, then adding it to your baking soda. The baking soda then gets added to the rest of your dry ingredients.
(2) You can also add the activated dye to your liquid phase. With this method, polysorbate 80 will need to be used to incorporate the activated dye with the oils in your bath bomb mix.
Dyes should not be used in CP soap. They will morph and bleed.
This is the best blue dye I've found. I'm not sure how it took me so long to try Nurture!!
Very good blue
I had avoided Blue 1 for awhile, but since I needed a blue that was bath water safe, I turned to Nurture Soap. And I'm glad I did. Good purchase and no regrets!
This is the best blue dye that I have used! Great color and doesn't seem to go as air borne as other dyes I have used do.
I love this blue, very pigmented, vibrant and easy to use! Doesnt stain the tub and stays well.
Very Nice Dye
This dye works very well in my bath bombs. Bright, intense, true blue color with no staining or ring around the tub when the water is drained. It also blends very nicely with the other dyes I've purchased from Nurture to create an amazing array of colors (and I love the color blender on the website!).
