Colour 18050 is also known as Acid Red 1. This is a water-soluble, crimson colour we use to create intense hues. Synthetic colours are regulated and approved for safe use by different governing bodies around the world. In the United States, colours for cosmetics must be specially pre-approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration.
We use this in our vibrant orange Karma soap. We also use it to create the candy pink of our Creamy Candy Bath Bubble Bar, and in our cherry coloured, Sweetie Pie shower jelly.
There is a huge array of colour listed under these systems. We use a few of these to supplement our natural pigments, to achieve a full pallet of colour. We find that there are some colours that we cannot achieve using only natural pigments.
Colour adds to the aesthetic of a product and enhances the experience, making the products more fun and exciting.
