Product Rating: 4.6/5 (As per 11 Customer Reviews)
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: This color is super concentrated. My soap was glowing! I broke that soap up to use as color. I also mixed this color with the tiniest bit of black to make a gorgeous green true lime peel color.

Rating: Easy does it! Start with just a drop or two 'til you know how much you really need or it may glow-in-the-dark (just kidding). It's a really great color and so easy to use. I like to use this color with a bit of brilliant blue and the clear melt and pour base, with the Margarita FO scent or even the Crisp Apple. They smell great and look really fresh! Will get this one again.

Rating: more of a 'glow in the dark' dayglo green than the soft apple green I was hoping for, but a good color for my margarita soap. Still hoping to find a gentler green labcolor.

Rating: The reviews on this product were so great, I thought I would get this lime color rather than a emerald.
I put it in my M&P opaque soap today though, and it looked like a yellow highlighter!
I was really surprised because the picture looked more like a melon...
On the other hand, this would be a good BRIGHT, NEON, color for a frog, or fun kids soap...

Rating: Tried this out in clear M&P and have to agree it is a really bright neon green.
This will make excellent colorant for kid soaps!

Rating: I really like this color, I just use a few drops right in my soap rather than mixing it up with water, a great product.
By:Mark, Sydney, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I'm a big fan of lab colours, that I can say!! When I used the Lime however I used quite a bit and got a florescent green of sorts on my soap. It was rather interesting and made it one of my most requested soaps because of that. A great way to make a funky kid's soap too! I highly recommend!

Rating: This colour is very versatile. You can use it "as is" for a nearly fluo colour or add a bit to your preparation. I made a mix of a bit of lime colour with powdered tea in my soap and had a wonderful result. It is a very good buy !
