Additional Information:

  • Important 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 can be varied to lighten or darken hue. Listed amounts create bright colors with no colored suds.
  • 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 colors@madmicas.com for pricing and information.

I love this color! Such a gorgeous deep purple.


What started out as a beautiful deep purple in the clear m&p soap turned a dark gray as soon as it hit the champagne colored solid soap I was trying to swirl it with. Maybe will work better in layers.

Simply a Gorgeous Purple

I can’t put into words just how gorgeous this mica is in bath bombs and in both clear and white MP!

Gorgeous Color

I cant wait to use this beautiful color in my soaps. Such a rich and beautiful color!

Daughter's Color

I bought this one for my daughter who loves purple....This one is dark and ominous and I am hoping to do it some justice in a halloweeny type of soap....but I know whatever I use it for it will be one of my favorite colors from you guys
