After saponification, this color turns into a beautiful chartreuse-like green with decadent gold tones! 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.
So, admittedly I was a little worried this would be a wonky green. However, it's quite pretty and unique. So pleased.
Wow! Such a color!
Beautiful, elegant color! I know it's called Cabin Fever and so it should make me think of woodsy walks and crisp autumn air, and yes, that's there too - but to me, it also evokes a baroque, over the top opulence...thinking old masters paintings, palaces and fairy tales! Have to think carefully and design a soap worthy of such a rich and glorious color! Thank you, Nurture people, for always offering such fabulous, amazing and inspiring products! You challenge me to be a better soaper!
