A deep reddish burgundy mica colorant with metallic sparkly cranberry colored sheen. The name lovingly comes from the friendly neighborhood family owned restaurants we love back home in Brooklyn, where they'd fold their baby raviolis by hand and cook spicy tomato sauce fresh every day.
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.
