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 base.

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

Cantaloupe can be a little tricky. It's heat sensitive and can be soft pink or more orange depending on the amount of heat in your soap. Our recommendation is to try this mica at different temps, gelled and ungelled and see how you like it. At higher temps it will be more orange. At lower temps it will be more pink. This color is so unique and pretty and so, so worth it!

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.

Great neutral color

I think I had received a sample of this mica, I'm not sure. At any rate, I ordered it because it is a nice neutral accent color for florals and works very well alongside other colors. It's very pretty!

Shimmery and subtle

I used the Canteloupe in some melt-and-pour for decorative bathroom soaps and was very pleased with how sparkly they turned out. It was a clear base and the shimmer came through perfectly! I can't wait to see how it looks in my white M&P base.

The color is amazing

I am fairly new to soap making, I chose colors I knew I couldn't mess up with. I gotta say the color is great, subtle and my whole family loved the soaps i made them for Christmas. They absolutely loved them. The color is not too bright, its very neutral. I will also mention i used it with melt and pour. The color is in the middle portion of the soap.

Subtle but beautiful

I wasn’t sure what I would use this for originally but I’m so glad I bought it! It swirled nicely with my bright pinks and off whites!
