This color is different than any other one we have seen. It is a soft peach/orange/pink/coral mica that is either peach in ungelled soaps or a soft pink/orange in gelled soaps. There is a dramatic difference in Cantaloupe Mica between gelled and ungelled soaps, and it offers a range of color depending on how it is used.
If you're looking for a soft coral mica, try this! It will be on the softer and less orange side of coral, but hands down the best true soft coral mica we have seen (and we've seen a lot).
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.
What a beautiful color. Such a unique pink/peachy color that looks stunning with navy blue. Thank you, Nurture!
Cantaloupe Pink Mica
The Cantaloup Pink Mica is a beautiful color in my CP Soap. I made a grapefruit mango soap and it was the perfect color that I needed to make the soap.
This is a nice pastel color. I used it with other pastels in a four color swirl with a white "background" in my standard CP soap recipe. I added it directly into the soap batter that had just reached emulsion. It blended nicely and was very easy to work with
I LOVE how beautiful this color is in cp soap! It is the perfect shade of light coral!
