Liquid FD&C Red #40 is a pre-mixed water based liquid dye. Great for soaps, bath salts, bath bombs, body powders, and other water based or dry formulations. Add to your water phase drop by drop until you get the desired color.

FNWL uses the standardized name for this color additive. Standardized names, however, can sometimes be vague. In our experience, Red #40 is a bright shade of red with a slight yellow tone. The amount of colorant that you use will affect the intensity and vibrancy of the hue.

Please Note: Monitors vary in the way that they render colors. The color of this product may differ slightly from the color that you see on your monitor screen.

INCI: Distilled Water, Red No. 40, and Propylene Glycol (and) Diazolidinyl Urea (and) Methylparaben (and) Propylparaben

Comments: This is a lovely shade of red. Seems like you need to use a lot of it to get a true red color. I had to use 25 drops to get a semi-red like ruby red grapefruit color.

Customer Testimonial

"I wanted to pass along to you that I am completely thrilled with the service and product that I have received from your company. I ordered $350.00 worth of supplies on 6/4 and received it on 6/7. I think it is great that you are so fast. Also, the supplies that I received were all better than I anticipated. More often than not, when you order something by mail or internet, it does not quite live up to expectations. I am pleasantly surprised that your company has exceeded my expectations."
