Lab Colors are formulated specifically to work in all bath and toiletry products with ease (except for bath bombs), without the mess and clean-up involved when using powdered dyes. These are made from D&C and FD&C dyes, which means they are tested to be safe. They are also stable in low and high pH environments, so are suitable for high-pH products such as cold process soaps, as well as low-pH products such as creams, lotions, gels and melt-and-pour soap bases. Please read and understand all instructions before using this product.
Uses: Lab Colors may be used by the drop or by dilution with water to give you the flexibility you need when formulating. The depth of color will vary depending on how much dye you add to your product.
Please see the Quick Start Guide below for more detailed instructions.

Rating: I have been making CP soap for 10 years using only micas, pigments or natural colourants and thought I would try this Labcolour. What a disappoinment! Does not blend evenly but leaves tiny flecks of colour. Also, I had to use a full 10ml bottle to colour 14lbs. of soap and it is nowhere near an "Aqua" shade. So not economical either. Will not purchase again.
Rating: Another wonderful color! Very easy to work with and Don't forget you can DILUTE THE COLOR IN A SEPARATE BOTTLE with pipette... I like to get the Boston Round Amber Glass Bottles in the 10 ml size with the Pipette Cap 18mm. I leave this bottle of diluted color out at room temperature for a few hours or days while soaping so it's always the perfect consistency. And if it does get thick in the fridge, I just let my little bottle sit in a half cup of HOT water bath for a bit and it "melts" again. Perfect.

Rating: I found mine turned more of a dark minty green, not the colour I was hoping for.
By:Jesi, Winnipeg, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 12-Oct-2007
Rating: Not sure if I got a bad batch but I found the aqua to be thick in texture. I found it left flecks of darker bluish green. I liked the way it looked but for the particular soap I was making it was not what I was looking for.
New Directions Aromatics Response:
Colors should have a consistent viscosity, but there can be some thickening over time. The product can be expected to perform the same, though customers should be aware that water can be used to alter the intensities of color.
This may require some trial and error, but consumers will find Lab Color products to be some of the easiest to work with.
Rating: I just bought this product and it works so wonderful in the soaps, I can't wait to try it in the bubble bath base.
