Sakura, are soft, delicate, evocative.

These beautiful and gentle blossoms (cherry blossoms in English) are deeply symbolic in Japan, mirroring the transience of life. For centuries, as the sakura have bloomed from late March through early May, hanami, or "flower watching," has been a revered Japanese custom. Hanami is not just to consider the beauty of the sakura; hanami is an opportunity to pause and consider one's destiny and mortality. 

Sakura appear in many forms of Japanese art, from film to performance, anime to traditional tattoos. We created this gorgeous gentle pink mica to spark thought and creativity, to perhaps bring calm and acceptance.

Particle Size 10–100 μm
Usage Rate CP Soap 2 tsp per lb of oils

Ingredients Mica (CI 77019), titanium dioxide (CI 77891), tin oxide (77861), iron 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 for pricing and information.
