Can you use food coloring for things like lotion, sugar scrubs, melt and pour soap, etc?
Is it FDA approved for cosmetics? It is approved for food...

No. It's only approved for food, but not cosmetics.

as far as I know, there were FD&C (food, drugs and cosmetics) and D&C (drugs and cosmetics) in FDA categories. It mens everything approved to be applied in food could be applied in cosmetics but not vice versa. It's only a matter of stability . Most food colors are not stable at high pH (soap), and most of them would bleed in M&P, and most of them are highly water soluble, the participation and stability in emulsions (oil containing)is not really high



interesting informations and links regarding color additives

I guess I read the regulations on food coloring the same way that Irena does.

"Use and restrictions. Color additives may be used only for the intended uses stated in the regulations that pertain to them. The regulations also specify other restrictions for certain colors, such as the maximum permissible concentration in the finished product."

Must I match colors with intended use?
Yes. No matter whether a particular color is subject to certification or exempt from certification, U.S. law prohibits its use in cosmetics (or any other FDA-regulated product) unless it is approved specifically for the intended use [FD&C Act, sec. 721(a)(1)(A); 21 U.S.C. 379e(a)(1)(A)].

http://www.fda.gov/ForIndustry/ColorAdd ... 110032.htm


Also, there are some colors that have been approved for food, but have not been approved for cosmetics. Some things are safe to eat but could cause horrible irritation or staining on our skin.

Well I guess its in the translation and here in Florida for now soap is not considered a cosmetic and "I" feel confident it is safe for the kids that use it baring they have no allegeries to the dyes. I always label everything but this is just my take on it.
