Carmine is a natural bright red dye. It is used in cosmetics (makeup products, hair products and soaps), foods, drinks, drugs, paints and pigments. Carmine is derived from the Dactylopius coccus insect. The female insects are harvested and processed, yielding bright red pigment. The use of carmine is increasing because of use restrictions on the synthetic red dyes, which may be carcinogenic.
