Candy Apple mica is an intense, bright, and beautiful red! It is a lab-created mica based on fluorphlogopite and is a great alternative to naturally mined mica. We carry a full line of lab-created micas here. Since these types of micas are not mined, they are one of the most ethical colors that can be used in all types of soaps and bath and body care.

INCI: Fluorphlogopite, titanium dioxide, tin oxide, iron oxide
Micron Size: 10-60

Prop 65: Titanium dioxide (airborne, unbound particles of respirable size) is on the Proposition 65 list because it can cause cancer. Exposure to titanium dioxide may increase the risk of cancer. Once incorporated into a liquid or solid base it is no longer airborne and falls off the Prop 65 list.

• Use rate in cold & hot process soaps: 1-2 teaspoons per pound of oils.
• Use rate in melt & pour soaps: .5 teaspoons per pound of oils.

~ More or less can be added to achieve your desired color. These usage rates are recommended for no colored lather. ~

This can make a fantastic bright red in CP soaps if used at 3-4 tsp. per pound in a white soap base. Green and yellow toned soap bases will throw off the color. We were very impressed with how red this mica could be at higher use rates in our testing. There was also no bleeding or migration!

If using in bath bombs, add polysorbate at half your oils. For example, if your oil = 3 teaspoons, use polysorbate at 1.5 teaspoons. This will help prevent a color ring around the tub.
