No need to hold back the oohs and aaahs when you gaze upon the sultry Tempest. A deep, dark and lustrous purple, sleek and sexy with a side of mystery.
Iridescent and smoky, the purple on purple shine will make your head spin with delight. This mica is a knockout to look at and we think you will love it .

NOTE: This mica gets varying results in CP soap due to ingredient and temperature differences while soaping. For that reason, we are calling it not soap stable, even though it has worked beautifully for many soapers.

Usage rates in Melt & Pour soap: 1/4-1/2 tsp per pound of M&P base.
Adjust these calculations to lighten or darken your desired hue. These amounts create bright colors with no colored suds.
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.
This is a beautiful dark purple. I used it for my m&p embeds... Will definitely buy a bigger jar next time...
Gorgeous dark purple
gave me a deep purple that I love
I love this for a perfect deep purple. I make bath bombs with this and add just a touch of a lighter purple mica to bring out its true tone when mixed with the white base. I love it and can’t wait to try it in soap!
Best color for Black Raspberry soap. Looks so beautiful in CP soap.
