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. ~

Cantaloupe can be a little tricky. It's heat sensitive and can be soft pink or more orange depending on the amount of heat in your soap. Our recommendation is to try this mica at different temps, gelled and ungelled and see how you like it. At higher temps it will be more orange. At lower temps it will be more pink. This color is so unique and pretty and so, so worth it!

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.

Cantaloupe Mica

Such a pretty, soft color!

Comes out pink

more subtle than bright in CP

Love this soft color & sparkle

This color is so soothing with hints and speckles that shine! I love subtle colors and am drawn to melon colors, this is so pretty in scrubs! Can’t wait to try in a lip balm!

Good "neutral" color that you lighten or darken

The first time I used this, I didn't put enough so the color wasn't what I expected. Next batch, I added more and it was an beautiful coral that worked perfectly for my swirl soap.
