Dyes & Coloring
For Perfume Makers
Adding color to your perfume complicates the chemistry. The coloring ingredients could change the long term stability of your product. And it can change the aroma. In short, we don't recommend adding coloring to your perfume unless you have a compelling reason to do so. IF you add coloring, TEST ... TEST ... TEST to make sure that all is well with your product. TEST on YOUR skin. TEST again after some time has gone by. Be sure of what you are selling before you offer it for sale!
