Purple Vibrance is the most tried and true purple mica we offer for soap. This color will give dependable and stable results each time in cold process, hot process, and melt and pour soaps. Many purple micas can morph and fade to a gray color in soaps. Purple Vibrance reigns supreme in cold process stability. It is well known for being the most stable purple mica available for soap making.
CP: Mix 1 part color with 1 part oil then add to soap.
MP: Mix mica in 91% rubbing alcohol then add to soap base.
HP: Add micas toward the end of the cook to retain the most color.
Avoid green and yellow oils. The whiter the base, the brighter the color! Gelling soap makes colors pop. Read our FAQ section for more info on using colors.
Bath Bombs (if safe for use): Use polysorbate 80 when using mica to color bath bombs. This will help disperse the color and prevent a powder ring around the tub.
