Candy Apple Red Mica Powder is a bold red color that works wonderfully in soaps. It is a lab created mica based on fluorphlogopite, a synthetic mica formulated to be exceptionally brilliant and bright. It is created to be identical to naturally occurring muscovite mica, yet superior in color intensity.
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.
