Yellow 5 dye colorant makes a sunny yellow color in bath bombs, liquid soaps, and melt and pour soaps. Our Yellow 5 dye has a 92% dye load.
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 was my first time using a dye powder in bath bombs. Oh my goodness it was so easy! Once the dye is activated with water the color dispersed beautifully through out my bath bomb mixture. I can’t wait to try this in our melt and Pour soaps.
This is definitely the best yellow dye I've found. Nurture is now my go-to for my dyes!
I love this dye it works great in my bath Bombs and stays true yellow!
Great dye, great price!
Dye powders are simply the best way to color bath bombs that won’t stain the tub. I have purchased dye powders from other places, but what sets these apart is that they are a great price and conveniently packaged in a wide mouth jar, making it easy to measure out small quantities.
I cant believe how bright this yellow gets. It's almost neon but still a solid color!
