"UPDATED REVIEW - Just used this in CP soap. Worked wonderfully although the shine disappeared (expected that). However, the top I mixed with some light oil and drizzled over and it became this beautiful, coppery-brown, gorgeous color. A definite reorder." - MaryAnn
We locked eyes. It was only for a minute but it's still burned into my memory. What I remember most were the stunning flecks of copper in his dark, soulful eyes. A color I had never seen before and have not seen since. That is, until now.
This exquisite copper mica is deep and warm, with a metallic complexion. It glistens with dulcet tones of russet and gold.

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.
I used this in my smore's and my coffee soaps. I added cocoa powder to it and it came out great. Has a nice shimmer. Shine. To it alone. The cocoa powder lessened the shine which is what I wanted.. great mica
Wow. Beautiful bronze/brown
Really didn’t expect to see the shine when I made my cp soap but it was the perfect brown color. Added some oil to a bit and slung it across the top and that beautiful shine of copper appeared. Absolutely love this color and will definitely buy again.
I’m planning making sugar scrub gingerbread men up coming Christmas season and this mica will be perfect!! Hoping I can find a delicious chocolate lip balm recipe I think it’ll be beautiful in!!
