Description

  • Use rate in cold & hot process soaps: 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 is a tricky color to work with. We recommend this color for those who are more advanced soap makers. When not enough is used it can go gray. It can also have a greenish cast in very yellow or green oils. Use as white of a base as possible. Don't add titanium dioxide to make your base more white, as this will make any color used more pastel. The oils themselves must be as close to white as possible.

The use rate is 2 tsp. per pound of oils. If you use less this color will be gray. This color performs best when fully gelled. When used correctly, this color produces a dark navy black/blue unlike any other, and it's absolutely gorgeous!

The only Navy I'll ever use

I've making cold process soap for almost 8 years and during this time, I've used many navy blue color mica's and all of them morphed until I purchased this one from Nurtures. It is a true Nave and the color holds up during saponification. I'm so happy I found this navy and I will continue to purchase more!

Awfully grey

I had a time with this mica. I'm a beginner so it was likely user error, but it turned a dark slate grey color. After the soap was unmolded, I saw that it had turned a dark forest green. Turned out lovely, but not the color I expected at all. Could be remedied by a greater amount of mica.

Yes, we mention these exact problems in our use notes! This can be a tricky color to deal with! ;)
The green color comes from the base oils being too yellow or green. This color needs a very white base.

beautiful navy!

I LOVED this navy in my Three Wise Men bar for my holiday line this year. I did a little bit in each layer to make a darker night sky and it worked beautifully!
