"Perfect Black! The perfect black with shimmer! I love it!" - Quen

A black grey with great luster just like a black pearl.  A lustrous and opalescent mica that adds the mysterious accent you might be looking for. If you are looking for black, check out our Wicked Black mica or use black iron oxide  or Activated Hardwood Charcoal (depending on your medium) for a pure black.

Soap Notes

Stable and true to color in hot process, cold process and melt & pour soap base (however, colors in white MP soap base appear more pastel-like).

Recommended usage rates in cold and hot process soap: 1-2 tsp. per lb of oils.

Recommended usage rates in melt & pour soap base: 0.5 tsp per lb of soap base.

Adjust to lighten or darken your desired hue.


Bath Bomb Notes

To use in bath bombs or other water applications, you must use polysorbate 80 (emulsifier) at a rate of 1-2% of your total batch weight.  This should disperse the color evenly and eliminate mica from floating on the water's surface or leaving a ring of mica around the bathtub.

This is the perfect shade. I love how smooth and easy it is to get the right color.

Awesome Product

Used in cold process soap. Will definately order again.


I love mixing this with activated charcoal to get a deep black shimmer. Love it

Excellent Silver Black

Black Oyster is my go to color to high light dark blacks, such as Wicked and activated charcoal. It makes a textured dark black CP soap more interesting to my eyes.. A number of MM colors were used to create this Zombie themed Halloween soap: celery (a beautiful discontinued color), lettuce entertain you, wicked, spicy tomato, true red, tall dark and handsome, sexy stranger on a train, and snow white. I have always been very pleased with MM colors.

Love this one!

Performed well in my CP soap. Will keep this on hand!
