What is the difference between a lake and a dye color?Answer:
Dye colors are water soluble and can be man-made or natural. These colors produce very vibrant hues and stay clear in clear bases. Lake colors
are man-made and an oil dispersible combination of dyes and a substrate material such as aluminium or barium. They tend to slightly cloud clear bases.
and lake colors will migrate in multicolored melt and pour soap. They are colorfast (not UV-stable) and when sold in stores require special packaging such as soap boxes to protect the colors from fluorescent lighting.
