Strong. Solid. That's what comes to mind when you see this deep, bold steely grey mica. The really cool thing about this mica, though, is the fantastic glittering iridescence that you see when the light hits it.

"Love love love! I used this Steel Works mica as a dark silvery-gray base in cold process soap. It blended beautifully and provided consistent color throughout the loaf. Will definitely purchase again!" —Jennie Z. (verified)

The juxtaposition of the twinkling rainbow of colors and the intense, industrial grey has a serious wow factor. Seriously.

Additional Information:

  • Usage rates can be varied to lighten or darken hue. Listed amounts create bright colors with no colored suds.
  • To use in bath bombs or other bath products (water applications), we recommend using polysorbate 80 at a rate of approximately 2% of your total batch weight (dry and wet ingredients). This should allow the color to disperse evenly and eliminate mica from floating on the water's surface or leaving a ring of color around the tub.
  • Sample bags contain approximately one teaspoon.

Remindse of gun metal color. Good for masculine soap using Graphite scent.

Very nice

Great color for men’s soap

Cheryl Moody

Great, stable mica. My daughter used it in a ravenclaw soap and it looks great. Have yet to use the soap as it hasn't cured yet. She appreciates how the sample is plenty for a small loaf and more.
