Difference between the supermarket liquid colours and these ones
1. The liquid colours in small bottles available in the supermarket use on average only 2.2% of active dye. If you work out this it means that our powder container is enough to dye many Olympic sized swimming pools.

2. The supermarket colours being in a solution require the addition of preservatives these mainly being E202 & E211.

Why do we charge for this paperwork?
The majority of our customers do not require this paperwork so we are able to pass on the savings. The cost of supplying this paperwork for a $10 product outstrips the product price. Compliance is a major cost to our company and if you require this then its only fair you share the cost. These fees can get quite high for example with all the information required for Organic Certification. See below on how to avoid the fees.

Blood Red - Verified Buyer Review

23 February 2018
I use this to make fake blood for movies, its really red like a blood nose red. Highest dye content I have found. My one tip is to make sure you wear gloves when using, even glad wrap the bench otherwise boom! water touches and red everywhere.
