    Prop 65: Titanium dioxide (airborne, unbound particles of respirable size) is on the Proposition 65 list because it can cause cancer. Exposure to titanium dioxide may increase the risk of cancer. Once incorporated into a liquid or solid base it is no longer airborne and falls off the Prop 65 list.

    Because this is a Nurture Soap custom color, we do not provide CoA information. Please take this into account if you need a safety assessment performed for your soap (i.e. European Union).

    What Does Uncertified Dye/Lake Mean? Why is it important?

    Synthetic color additives, also known as certified colors, are required to undergo batch certification, a process in which the FDA analyzes a representative sample of each batch of the color additive to ensure it meets the required identity and specifications before it can be used. 

    Nurture Soap has a certification account with the FDA, and we send each lake and dye to be analyzed before being released for sale. However, the rules are different for mixtures. A mixture is a combination of two or more lakes or dyes, or the addition of a diluent. A diluent commonly used in neon colors is polyurethane 11, such as our neon colors. A mixture containing dye or lakes must be made using certified colors at the manufacturer. We asked the Color Certification Branch Chief at the FDA, and were told a mixture cannot be certified by a distributor or down-the-chain supplier. The manufacturer must do it.

    Here's the tricky part: There is one manufacturer that most neon colors come from. They are not US-based and perhaps exempt from US law. They market the neons as, for example, Polyurethane11 (and) D&C red no. 28, but when asked they stated that the dye used (D&C red no. 28) was in fact, not certified.

    Ouch. The issue is that each batch of dyes and lakes must be analyzed and certified by the FDA to be used in cosmetics. If not, the dye or lake must be identified by its uncertified name and marked as non-cosmetic grade.

    • Uncertified D&C red no. 28 is acid red 92.
    • Uncertified FD&C yellow 5 is tartrazine.

    It’s against the law to market FDA-regulated products in the United States that contain a certifiable color additive from an uncertified batch. If you see a neon color containing polyurethane 11 and "certified" dye, buyer beware. It is not truly certified, and it is not cosmetic grade. It does, however, make strikingly beautiful soaps!

    Love this color! Gives my lemon soap a wonderful color!

    Really started using this recently. It is an awesome yellow...doesn't take a lot to get the shade I'm looking for with my lemon scented soap!

    Neon Yellow

    This is my favorite neon yellow. I love that there's a little bit of shimmer to it. I use it in my resin art.

    Best neon yellow

    If you do neon soaps you need to add this yellow to it! It’s so bright and blinding it’s beautiful

    T.B. (Eugene, US)
    Excellent neon color

    I use this color as a standalone neon, but also use it to mix in with other yellows. I love using this in some of my nostalgia 80's and 90's themed soaps.

    80s yellow!

    This color reminds me SO much of the 1980s, in the best possible way. This color performs very well, and I find that it actually looks neon in CP soap without having to use a ton of colorant. I like this mica blend better than the straight neon yellow pigment.
