Blue Lagoon mica is a blue mica with green shimmer. It is a two-tone mica and different than our other blue micas. Your soap will have a blue color with an underlying green shimmer. When applied directly to the skin, this mica will reflect different colors depending on light. Looking at it from one angle it will be blue, but looking from another it will have a green undertone. It reminds us of a tropical sea!
Recommended use rate in cold and hot process soap is 1 tsp. per pound of oils. For melt and pour, the recommended use rate is .5 tsp. per pound of base.
We cannot recommend our green and blue micas for bath bombs, since the color additives contained in them (chromium oxide green and ultramarine blue) are not approved by the FDA for use on lips or other mucous membranes. Although bath products have historically been considered externally applied cosmetics, bath bombs are different because the product is put in the bath and there is prolonged exposure to mucous membranes. We have personally clarified this information with the Director of the Color Certification Branch of the FDA. Have questions? Contact Us.
