Specially designed for use in making bath salts & bath bombs but also works great in shampoo, lotion and soap.
Liquid lakes are a DYE (not a pigment) mixed in glycerine. They are water soluble and will colour the bath water you put it into, depending on how much colour you use. If you use too much in order to make a really strong colour you run the risk of staining the bath or a washcloth, so use a light touch when making bath bombs or bath salts.
Add colour to your soap base drop-by-drop. Adding more drops will produce a darker colour. If your soap bubbles are not white you have used too much colour. Adding this colour to white soap will produce a pastel coloured bar of soap.
