Oil soluble color solubility hair oil

I am using below mentioned colours in our All variants of Hair Oils.

 CI 47000 (Yellow), CI 61565 (Green) & CI 26100 (Red)

I have notice that in our Manufacturing area, to Make one hair oil variant it will take more than 5 to 6hr, the reason is we need to mix the base (Light liquid Paraffin) with color for 5hr, then only colours are properly solubilizing in Mineral Oil (Light Liquid Paraffin).

 I need to reduce our manufacturing time from 6hrs to 2hrs, 

If anybody can help, it would be great

    C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate will work there. 
  • I think color solubility matters. Try different Oil soluble color.

  • Try dissolving color in sesame / coconut oil & then mix.

    @chemicalmatt already did. He proposed using a "pigment dispersion aid" (dunno if there is a proper name for this). There's a bunch of such compounds available which also tend to be well suited for sunscreen dissolution, you just have to search for them if you don't like Cetiol AB.
