I’m trying to decide if I should buy new colorants for coloring the shampoo and conditioner bar bases I’m experimenting with. I’ve seen shampoo bars with micas and oxides which is what I used for my first round of testing. Getting the oxides evenly dispersed was a little bit of a challenge, but I can get past that. The ingredient lists for the Lush bars I looked at include numbered dye or lake colors. Nurture sells lakes in powder form for mixing with oil and dyes that are mixed with water, but I don’t know how hard it would be to mix them. If you use colorants for shampoo or conditioner bars and you don’t mind sharing, what kind do you use, is there a brand you prefer and, if in the US, where do you get it?
