With the sun-shiny yellow of a lemon and the fluffy lightness of a fresh baked lemon cupcake, this happy mica seems to contain actual flecks of the sun.
Use this color and watch your frown turn upside down!
As always, all of our micas come in recyclable, sugar-free, gluten-free, fat-free, non-gmo, heart healthy no-mess jars, never bags (yay oceans!). Do not eat jars.

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.
