Description

  • Use rate in cold & hot process soaps: 1-2 teaspoons per pound of oils.
  • Use rate in melt & pour soaps: .5 teaspoons per pound of oils.

~ More or less can be added to achieve your desired color. These usage rates are recommended for no colored lather. ~

This can make a fantastic bright red in CP soaps if used at 3-4 tsp. per pound in a white soap base. Green and yellow toned soap bases will throw off the color. We were very impressed with how red this mica could be at higher use rates in our testing. There was also no bleeding or migration!

If using in bath bombs, add polysorbate at half your oils. For example, if your oil = 3 teaspoons, use polysorbate at 1.5 teaspoons. This will help prevent a color ring around the tub.

This was my first time ordering, but not my last! The color mixed in my strawberry goat milk soap perfectly!

This red behaves beautifully in soap and I absolutely love it! I just restocked it and already have tons of soaps planned with it!

This is a vibrant color, but I didn’t really achieve red & I used 2 tsp per pound of oil in CP soap. I will try using it again & add more. It also had a bit of a red-orange tint in the color, which wasn’t what I was going for. It’s a great color & now I will know what batches to use it in & have a better idea of how much to add.

We do suggest 3-4 tsp ppo with this one to get a nice red in CP soap and your base should be nice and white! :)

wow!

This is an awesome red! Very bright and bold. Very stable in cp soap. I can't wait to try it in my new project coming up, tinted lip balm. I'm so excited!
