Soap Notes

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 Cold Process soap: 1-2 tsp. per pound of oils.

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.

Beautiful purple

This is a beautiful dark purple. I used it for my m&p embeds... Will definitely buy a bigger jar next time...

Love It

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.
