Koi is a great orange colored mica. The mica is Koi fish-like in color.... a true orange with a hint of dark pink, but when this color is soaped in cold process soap, it leaves you with straight orange.

"Seriously underestimated - Koi is an unsung hero, a seriously underestimated color. In the bottle, koi is well a little coy, she is hiding her true beauty. She has a hint of pink in the container. But Boy Howdy watch her do her stuff in CP. An absolutely STUNNING orange in CP."
—Tia (verified)

When used in clear melt and pour (MP) soap, it shimmers and captures all the gorgeous shimmer and hues. Like a school of fish in the Koi pond, this one really captures your attention.

Particle Size 10–60 μm
Usage Rate CP Soap 2 tsp per lb of oils
Usage Rate MP Soap ½ tsp lb of MP base
Ingredients Mica (CI 77019), titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxide (CI 77491)
  • 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.

One of my Favorites

Love this Orange! It performs well in cold process soap. Looks like a peachy orange and I use it across my product line. Tried it in the sample pack and ended up purchasing it!

Koi is a lovely, grown-up orange

I do love a crazy bright neon orange, but sometimes a girl wants to class it up a bit. For my touch-of-elegance, pretty heart flower soaps I used Koi mica for the orange (2 tsp in 24 oz soap base), Flirt for the pink (2 tsp in 24 oz soap base), and then used Goldfinger (1 tsp) in sweet almond oil (0.5 oz.) for extra sparkly swirls of dark gold. The soap turned out lovely! (And I had Goldfinger left over to use in another project! Wahoo!) I adore Mad Mica micas!

Lovely color!

Needed a color for a specific project. A friend suggested this color, and it worked perfectly. Turned out great!

Gorgeous orange!

I made a summer collection and the Koi color just popped! Im very happy with purchase. And also its easy to create a new color with just added a shimmery mica and/or some gold flecks. Love it!
