Micas

Micas do not “bleed” into one another and do not “migrate” or spread. Widely used in cosmetic products such as make-up, CP soaps, melt & pour soaps, liquid soaps, shampoos, lotions, creams, scrubs, bath salts, bath fizzies, lotion bars and lip balms (where applicable). Individual testing recommended to ensure product stays suspended. Recommended percentages will depend on your desired intensity result.
CP SOAP: Start by mixing 1-2 tsp mica with 1 Tbs vegetable oil per pound of soap at light trace and adjust as desired. Not all micas stay true in CP soap, which is a more alkaline environment, so they “morph”. Certain colors perform better than others in CP soap, but will require a higher usage amount.
MP SOAP: Start by mixing 1/4-1/2 tsp per pound of MP base and adjust as desired.They will not morph in Clear MP Soap. They will appear muted/more pastel in White MP Soap due to the Titanium Dioxide whitener.
Usage depends upon the desired color result. Use as much or as little as you like to achieve the shade or depth of color you desire. Micas do not stain.
