Our Primary Colors gel dye pack includes 1/2-oz. jars of Wilton's Lemon Yellow, Christmas Red, Sky Blue, and Brown. These colorants may contain one or more of the following FD&C U.S.-certified colors: Yellow #5, Red #3, Blue #1, Yellow #6, Red #40, and Blue #2.
These gel dyes (originally designed to tint cake frosting) are our favorite way to color melt-and-pour soap, shampoo, shower gel, and lotion. The dyes are incredibly rich and concentrated -- a tiny dollop on the end of a toothpick will color 8 or 16 oz. of shampoo/shower gel -- so start with the tiniest amount imaginable and add more color as desired. They mix in almost effortlessly; use each shade alone, or combine them to create a veritable rainbow of colors.
