Description

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

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

Black Pearl is our preferred black mica for clear melt and pour. Due to it's silver sheen, it can make MP really pop! For a darker, truer black in cold process soaps try Activated Charcoal or Nocturnal Mica. Activated charcoal makes a truer black than any mica we have tried, and is out go-to for achieving true black in cold process soap that does not bleed or migrate.

Black Iron Oxide is also a great choice for black in CP. Only a little needs to be used. The disadvantage to black oxide is that it can bleed in the shower, and no one wants black stuff running down their shower walls!

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.

Titanium dioxide (airborne, unbound particles of respirable size) is on the Proposition 65 list because it can cause cancer. Exposure to titanium dioxide may increase the risk of cancer. Once incorporated into a liquid or solid base it is no longer airborne and falls off the Prop 65 list. More Info.

Black with a shimmer

I love to activated charcoal, but when I need a black color with a touch of shimmer, this is my go to. A solid staple for my neutral collection of micas.

Gives a shimmer to night themes

I have been making landscape soaps lately and when I need a 'Night Sky', a touch of this mica into blue or black really does make a difference - it gives a beautiful shimmer.
