Description

The best thing about Firecracker mica is the way it looks in clear melt and pour. It is a true, bright red. If you are looking for a true red for your melt and pour soaps, look no further. In cold and hot process it fades to a very pretty bright pink color.

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

Cosmetic use:
• Eyes
• Lips
• Bath Bombs
• External Use

Ideal for:
• Soap
• Resin
• Crafts
• Lotion
• Butters
• Wax Melts
• Nail Polish

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. ~

Many people have success with using Firecracker as red in their soaps. To achieve a great red color, use at at least 2 teaspoons per pound of oils in cold process soap. Red is the trickiest color in the spectrum for CP, and can have a tendency to fade more than any other color! We've found this color performs its best when using at lower temps. Higher temperatures may make it more pink. It's one of the most versatile colors we carry! The red is brilliantly beautiful in clear MP!

If using in bath bombs, add polysorbate 80 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.

Great red!

I add a lot to a small section of my soap batch and it makes a beautiful bright red, then I add a small amount to a larger section to make it a lighter pink. It looks beautiful in my rose soap
