are similar yet much different than the lake versions. Our dyes are
straight dyes. They are very high strength and will require a much
lighter hand when using them. Lakes are pre diluted and generally less

dyes at 91-95% dye and you will see the difference.
Pride has been certified to purchase batch certified dyes from the
manufacturer and break the larger amounts down into smaller more
reasonably priced portions for home and small business crafters. The
FDA has strict rules on how and where dyes can be repackaged. These
dyes have been repacked in an approved facility and under proper
sanitary measures were taken to ensure you are receiving unadulterated
dyes in compliance with the FDA requirements. You will receive a copy
of all necessary documentation via email.
As with all colorants
you will need to do your own color testing to achieve the colors you
desire. There are many options and color charts available online to mix
your own custom colors like pink, teal, green, purple etc. It is
just a matter of choosing the right dyes and mixing in small amounts.
Remember this is strong stuff and a little goes a long way so go easy
until you get the hang of it. Keep notes when you are mixing colors so
you can replicate them in the future so consistent products.
These dyes can be used in most bath products but you will need to check with the FDA for your personal usage needs.
