    Soap Use Notes

    The powder in the jar may look different than you expect! Dyes need to be added to water to turn into their true color.

    Dyes 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: Dyes are not recommended for CP soap. They tend to morph, migrate into other colors, and bleed.

    Liquid & MP Soaps: They are absolutely wonderful for use in melt & pour and liquid soaps. Dilute the dye with a bit of water then add to your soap.

    Bath Bombs: Dyes are best when bloomed before adding to your bath bomb recipe. Blooming means to dissolve a bit of dye in water first, then add to the baking soda that goes in your bath bomb mix.

    True Red

    I appreciate this dye for its True Red Color! It's not my favorite primary red for mixing, though still a beautiful deep Red!

    Red dye

    My son’s best friend, may as well be brother, wanted RED oatmeal milk and honey body wash, his fav color. Hubby said it looked pink right after I got done making it. It was from the air bubbles. It was absolutely red the next morning after bubbles cleared.

    Works great in bath bombs!

    I love using this dye in my bath bombs for a fun color! Dyes do fade in the sun, but I have no problem with fading if keeping the bath bombs in the shade when at sales. I will keep repurchasing!

    Great product

    Makes a lovely red in my bath bombs and embeds. Lasts a long time as a little goes a long way! I like using this red for embeds more than bb for true red.


    Just adding to my arsenal of dyes😉
