Lustrous Brown is not your ordinary brown mica. It is a beautiful brown mica with bright sparks of gold throughout. It is a two-tone mica, and when applied to the skin it has a gorgeous golden hue. This is the prettiest brown mica we have ever seen!
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.
Purchased a sample of this & will be back for more! It's a gorgeously rich hue of honey brown in CP, as golden tones really make it a warm & opulent shade! I really enjoy using Nurture's "Bronze Brown" in my CP soaps, and this is equally stunning! Not quite as intense as "Bronze Brown" in CP, so it's the perfect shade for those still wanting a deep, rich brown that's softened a bit by golden highlights! As another reviewer mentioned, I also used this with a discoloring FO to ensure a nice, uniform darkening of the soap, and the results were regal looking! Used it again as an accent color in a batch of CP using Nurture's EXQUISITE "Oudh Wood" FO (HOLY INCREDIBLE FO BTW!), and that turned out WONDERFUL as well! As a main colorant or an accent, this mica is outstanding, and a little goes a LONG way to achieve deep, jaw-dropping color! Such are the micas here though... The results I get with Nurture Soap's micas are always consistently beautiful!
