Laurel Green mica is a soft green mica that holds true in cold process soap. This mica has a very high shimmer effect and is much more beautiful to the eye than can be captured in a picture! It will have a high shimmer in cold process and will appear sparkly in clear melt and pour. This green is more pastel in tone than our other green micas.
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.
