INCI: CI142090 Blue 1 Lake
Trade Name: FD&C Blue 1 Lake - HIGH
Colour: Produces a brilliant, colour in clear bases. Colour is not 100% clear and will cloud clear bases. A pastel colour is produced in opaque (white) bases.
Colour Fading: This dye is light sensitive. Soaps may fade if left in direct sunlight or artificial lighting.
Compared to FD & C Dyes, lake dyes are less likely to migrate between layers of MP soap. If product design has layered colours, overuse of this dye will cause coloured layers to migrate or “bleed” between layers. Does not affect product pH. Dispersible in oil.
Melt & pour soap: mix with glycerin then add to the melted soap base
Bath Bombs: Add lake to dry ingredients. Bath bombs will become coloured when base becomes moistened. For more brilliant colours in dry bombs, consider blooming your baking soda with your desired lakes.
Lakes are produced from the FD&C Dyes and can be either water are oil dispersible (but generally not oil soluble) and can be mixed with oils. They can also be dispersed in other carriers such as propylene glycol & glycerin.
