What are FD&C Aluminum Lakes?

FD&C Aluminum Lakes are color additives derived from the insoluble salts of certified dyes. They are commonly used in food, drugs, and cosmetics to provide vibrant, stable coloration that resists bleeding and disperses easily in various applications.

Difference between FD&C Dyes and FD&C Aluminum Lakes

Lakes: FD&C Aluminum Lakes are pigment versions of dyes, suitable for fat-based products and where bleed resistance is needed. Though traditionally used in solid forms, specialized formulations have expanded their use to various other mediums.

Dyes: More vibrant and soluble, FD&C Dyes are ideal for applications where vivid coloring is essential and solubility in water is required. While commonly used for coloring liquids, these dyes are equally effective in creams, gels, and various solid forms, demonstrating their broad utility across different mediums.
