Electric orange is a deep, bright and bold orange in cold process soaps. If you have used orange micas before, you may know they can be tricksters. Don't soap too hot with orange micas. If used correctly this will be the brightest orange mica you have ever seen in your soaps!
CP: Mix 1 part color with 1 part oil then add to soap.
MP: Mix mica in 91% rubbing alcohol then add to soap base.
HP: Add micas toward the end of the cook to retain the most color.
Avoid green and yellow oils. The whiter the base, the brighter the color! Gelling soap makes colors pop. Read our FAQ section for more info on using colors.
Bath Bombs (if safe for use): Use polysorbate 80 when using mica to color bath bombs. This will help disperse the color and prevent a powder ring around the tub.
Electric orange is a beautiful orange. It maintains its bright color in cp soap even after curing. It also makes a lovely peach color if you only use a small amount.
What a great Orange
Ok so for my most recent restock I only used it as a peachy color, however, a few restocks ago I did use it as an orange color and it was AMAZING!!!
Wow... this color looks so natural! I make a carrot soap using carrot juice for colorant. And when I used electric orange, it looks just like the beautiful color I get from when I use carrot juice. I love it!!!
