    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!

    Soap Use Notes

    • Use rate in cold & hot process soaps: 1-2 teaspoons per pound of oils.
    • Use rate in melt & pour soaps: .5 teaspoons per pound of oils.

    ~ More or less can be added to achieve your desired color. These usage rates are recommended for no colored lather. ~

    Red Neon will migrate into other colors when used in soaps! None of our other neons migrate. We offer this neon because it's a great base for making a true red color in CP soaps. Make true red by blending with red iron oxide or darker red color like Red Vibrance mica.

    Neon pigments should be dispersed in a bit of your soap making oils before using in soap. If not mixed well you may get streaks or speckles! Add enough oil to the color to completely saturate and disperse it before adding it to your main soap batch.

    Best neon I've used. Very true to color and a little goes a long way. And it sticks too. No fading. What you see is what you get.


    Haven't used yet, but it's a very nice and vibrant color.

    E. (Baltimore, US)
    Perfect color to create true reds.

    I use this color to make a true red color since it comes out more pink. I also use it by itself for my watermelon soap.

    The BEST Red!

    I LOVE this red! I shy away from reds because they are usually too orange-y for me and when Christmas comes around...lets just say I dread the reds! No matter what I did my soaps end up looking like a raw steak! Until I discovered this Neon Red. I just poured my Christmas soap for this year and I am so pleased. I used Neon Red and its a beautiful blue/red. This will be my go to red from now on. Get it, you won't regret having this in your collection!

    More a magenta than red

    I know they mentioned it but it is not really red. I am so sad.
