History

Indigoid Blue is a synthetic version of Indigo, a famous dye and laked pigment that has been used since ancient times. The chemical compound that constitutes the indigo dye is called indigotin.

Although genuine indigo from plant sources is available, only the synthetic version is now used in commercial dye and pigment products. Genuine Indigo is designated NB1 (Natural Blue 1). The synthetic dye molecule was first synthesized by Bäyer in 1878, and it later became available as a commercial dye, quickly replacing natural sources.
