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.
Just what you need for a deep, dark, rich purple. Get the biggest jar you can!
It came out gray in my cold process soap.... Idk if it was the fragrance oil or the color itself.
Absolutely love this color! It works well in my soaps and resin projects. Expect rich color with less powder, no transfer of pigment on washcloths.
Haven't had a chance to use it yet but it looks promising and I'm looking forward to using this instead of black...just for the purple of it.
Use this color in a cold process soap turned out beautifully. I was going for a blackberry color and it definitely helped me succeed in getting that.
