We are very excited to offer this line of Flutter Dyes™ candle dye! Flutter Dyes™ are made from the highest quality ingredients and meet all the requirements of California Proposition 65. They are phthlalate-free and petroleum/paraffin-free. Flutter Dyes™ have been tested in all waxes, they do not leave color residue at the bottom of your pour pot or in your candle and will not clog your wick! They resist UV damage but we still recommend a UV inhibitor for long-term storage. The Flutter formulas are proprietary (trade secret). The dye carriers are 100% natural wax but the minute colorant ingredients are synthetic (when we find a completely natural candle dye we'll sure let you know!).
NOTE-ALL Flutter Dyes will be changing. Some have already been updated to new versions or entirely new colors. Why? The availability of the ingredients. Near natural ingredients for candle dye are difficult to obtain and most now come from Europe.
CONSISTNCY TESTING: Because nature is fickle and products containing natural ingredients are not as consistant as we would like, we have ALWAYS recommended doing a small test with every new batch your receive, just to make sure you are able to achieve the colors you want prior to making a big batch. This was even before we started reformulation.
