This has quickly become one of my favorites of the blue hues in the Nurture collection. Slightly sparkly and true baby blue! I added a small amount of super sparkles and Kashmir mica (also from Nurture) and it came out a beautiful shade of darker sparkly baby blue! Using in snowflake soaps.
Baby Blue Mica
Love it! Nurture Soap is the only place I purchase micas. Definitely a WIN WIN!!
A Lovely Shade of Blue~
Baby Blue is one of two blue micas from Nurture Soap that I use the most. Easy to blend in Cold Process soap and the color is great! No fading whatsoever. It compliments so many other colors too! Using BABY BLUE mica in Cold Process soap: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bu-qddaw3f8&t=7s
Awesome in CP & MP!
In my "go-to" CP recipe, I found it was helpful to add a touch of TD to my soap batter before adding this mica, because with my base oils, it wants to go a bit green-ish (normal for soft blues and my recipe). Adding TD helps to bring out that true baby blue color without the mica having to compete with my base oils & it's SOOOO PRETTY!! In MP it's absolutely gorgeous as well, and as Katie Carson of Royalty Soaps just demonstrated in her last video, it makes for the PERFECT robin's egg blue too (check out the embeds she made- TOO STINKIN CUTE!!!) This mica actually made the COOLEST color in my latest batch too, where I used a discoloring FO! It's a fragrance I've soaped with before, so I know it goes a solid tan. I was curious to see how this mica would work with the natural discoloration of that FO, and I couldn't have been happier with the results! My soap didn't go tan, but didn't go straight blue either- the war between vanillin and soft blue resulted in the most incredible shade of sea foam green-blue I've ever seen! Worked out BETTER than I had envisioned because the scent was Driftwood, so the color scheme worked out awesome for the name I wanted to call it ("Shipwrecked")! However which way I choose to use this mica, I can achieve a BEAUTIFUL & true baby blue, all the way to sea foam green in my CP batches... That makes it a wonderfully versatile shade for me that I'll be back for more of undoubtedly!
