true red

This is a true red and I love it!!

Pau V

I didn’t like this mica. I used a bunch of it and didn’t give me the vibrant red color I was looking for.

We would love to help you achieve the red you want! Please call or email us and we can figure it out. It will work, but many factors are at play. Our phone number is 561-845-0050. We would love to help! The product is solid and works if the usage rate is followed.

Truly True Red

I weighed out mica per their recommendation and it was the most vivid and perfect red. Perfect for seasonal peppermint soaps!

Lauri Smith
Wow-a truly great red

When this color arrived, I thought, this is too pink to ever become a true red. Boy was I wrong. I love it and the red is fantastic.

Bethany MacArthur
Best red EVER

Never been able to achieve red color before this!

Thanks, Bethany! Your soap looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing!
