The famed Golden Buddha was discovered in 1957 when a group of monks were relocating their Monastery in Thailand. They noticed a large crack in what they thought was a clay Buddha.

"Absolutely gorgeous! I’ve used this in my cold process soap (beautiful creamy golden color) and in my bath bombs ... I want a gallon of this lol."
—Yvonne G. (verified)

Further inspection of this crack revealed that the Buddha was in fact made of solid gold. Historians believe that it had been covered in clay hundreds of years prior to protect it from an attack by the Burmese army.

It is most definitely a treasure, and we are so excited to bring you this magnificent gold. It’s just exquisite; reminiscent of the gold jewelry found in Thailand. Whatever medium you choose: soap, resin, make up, etc., Golden Buddha mica will not disappoint.

Particle Size 10–60 μm
Usage Rate CP Soap 2 tsp per lb of oils

Ingredients Mica (CI 77019), titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxide (CI 77492) tin oxide (CI 77861)
  • Usage rates can be varied to lighten or darken hue. Listed amounts create bright colors with no colored suds.
  • White MP base will always create a pastel form of the color due to titanium dioxide in base.
  • 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.
  • For mica-specific information not available on this page, please consult provided data sheets.
  • Larger sizes are available. Please email colors@madmicas.com for pricing and information.
