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 just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
