"Fabulous in lip balm! Satin Penny was stunning in my butter pecan lip balm! It mixed in well, and added a rich, pretty sparkle. I'm excited to try it in my CP soap"
—Eleanor (verified)

Shining like a newly minted penny, but with a deeper, richer tone, this metallic bronze has a luminous hue.

Usage Rate CP Soap 2 tsp per lb of oils
Usage Rate MP Soap ½ tsp lb of MP base
Ingredients Mica (CI 77019), 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.
  • 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.

Satin penny mica

I loved this mica! I used it for embeds on my cp soap and it’s very beautiful and warm.

Lisa Pyka
The perfect “unbrown”

Do you know when you need a color to cover discoloration but you don’t want just brown? This is it! It’s so pretty.

The Bride to be...

This is the second color for my nieces wedding and oh my, beautiful. She loves the color choices.

Warm soft brown - like leather

Love Satin Penny. It has a warm feel to it, like a worn leather bag or buttery soft driving gloves. I use it in CP as a warm brown but it really shines when you use it to dust melt and pour embeds to make coppery autumn leaves or bronzed acorns. Fancy and inviting!
