We are introducing Trial by Fire Red Mica for cold process soap!
It's premixed and easy to use.
It is a true bright red in cold process soaps.
It makes true red with 2 tsp. per pound of oils. This is a great usage rate for red!
Perfect for melt and pour and hot process soaps.
It will not bleed or migrate into other colors.
Don't let the color this mica is in the jar fool you. In the jar it looks pink. This is because of a unique mixing process we used to make this red. Add a bit to soap or oils and watch it turn bright red. It's magic!
You will not find a better red than this one anywhere. This is blended in a specialized blending machine in-house at Nurture Soap. We don't sell this blend as a set such as our True Red Trio. After much testing, we have found the ultimate blend that works in soap every single time.
We offer other red sets, but blending micas + pigments it takes to make red can be tricky. Depending on many factors, our Really Red! may migrate. It was the first true red on the market and we're so proud of that, but we knew there was room for improvement. We studied every factor of what it takes to make the perfect red mica. As a result, we have created the true holy grail of red - Trial by Fire Red Mica.
We found that when used at 2 - 3 tsp. per pound of oils in CP soap, this red would transfer to a washcloth but once rinsed, came right of the cloth. You may want to test a small amount for staining if you are concerned that this color may stain washcloths.
This color does not migrate. Migration is one color bleeds into the other in soap. We have many samples of this red used against white in cold process soap. Absolutely no migration has occurred.
Trial By Fire Red is great. The color is beautiful in CP. Next time I’ll buy the 4oz jar.
This red came out beautiful.
Love how this turned out.
The perfect red!
I absolutely love this red mica! It is the ONLY red mica that I have found that is truly red without turning pink in cold processed soap and melt and pour soap.
Produced a very nice truly red color in cold process soap.
I used this as an accent color in a peppermint eucalyptus blend. I used Rainforest green mica for the bottom, jade green for the top, and the trial by fire for the flickering flames inside the bar. I used this in a cold process milk soap. The red came out a bit on the orange side but I believe that is because of the natural yellow color of my milk soap. I plan on using TD to lighten the yellow to a more white before I add the TBF next time and see how it comes out. I did notice no bleeding so that's good.
