Bluebell is a very interesting purple blue mica that looks great in soaps! It is a two-tone mica created to be blue with a distinctive purple sheen. Looking at this color from one angle you will see blue, but look at it from a different angle you will see subtle and beautiful purple undertones. This color really shines in melt and pour, but looks great in cold process, too! In cold process this color will be more matte with less of the purple sheen.
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.
