This color is very stable in cold process soap. As with most green micas, this color may turn a darker brown or murky gray during saponification. If this happens, please wait up to 48 hours for the original green color to return in cold and hot process soaps. The color change will not occur in melt and pour soaps, due to these types of soap having a lower pH.
To use in cold process soap, you may add this color directly to your very thinly traced soap batter and stir with a hand blender. You may also blend with a bit of your soap making oils first, and then add this blend to your soap. Both methods work very well and which one you choose is your preference.
To use this mica in melt and pour soaps, add to a bit of 91% or higher rubbing alcohol first to fully disperse the mica. This will ensure you do not have clumps of color in your MP base.
A fantastic green that keeps a great color in cold process soap. Very true to the website image.
Lovely evergreen color
This color was essential in our holiday soap line-up! held up perfectly, ordering more to keep on hand.
Lovely foresty green
I used alpine green to color part of the soap on the right. The darkest color is alpine green, and the color above it is alpine green + hello spring!
Country Apple Soap using Alpine Green
I was looking forward to creating the perfect apple color palette and I couldn't have been more satisfied. I used Alpine Green mica and it is a wonderful option if you are looking for an earthy, woodsy, plant shade of green. In the photos, you'll see Alpine Green as the darker green color in my soap. I absolutely love it!
When preparing for my Christmas soap making this year, I noticed that I had only a few teaspoons of ALPINE GREEN mica left. Afraid that it was going to be sold out quickly I ordered another jar right away as I couldn't image making soap for Christmas without this beautiful mica.
