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.
