Turquoise dye colorant makes a turquoise green color in bath bombs, liquid soaps, and melt and pour soaps. Our Turquoise Dye Mix is more green with a bit of blue, and contains certified FD&C Blue 1, FD&C Yellow 5.
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 color came out perfect after blooming the baking soda. I did not bloom before using in my bath bomb and will not make that mistake again. Will definitely be purchasing more of this color and others in the future!
THIS is a true turquoise! Easy to work with and a solid color.
Turquoise Dye Powder
Works great! Beautiful color in my bath bombs.
First time using dyes.
I guess my expectations were too high. I'm a lakes girl and decided I'd give dyes a try. I used almost the same amount of dye as I use lake to get the same payoff. I'll play a bit more. Who knows? I may end up loving them.
