From Karyn: "I had a great aunt who only slept on satin sheets. I spent the night there once and got to try them out for myself. They were a silvery-grey color, and the pillows looked like shiny puffy presents, just like our Satin Grey Pillowcase mica. This mica sparkles with a smooth, silvery shine that emanates through its satiny sheen."
"Yeah, those were some awesome sheets. In fact, I was so enamored with them that my aunt let me keep one of the pillowcases. That pillowcase went away to summer camp with me and eventually held four years of dreams when I brought it with me to college. I still have it somewhere."
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.
