Description

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

~ 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.

Nice red

A nice red, although not as bright as the trial by fire. This one is more toned down

Beautiful all around

You really can't go wrong with any of Nurture Soap's micas. They work well in cp, are concentrated and make great mixers (try their color blender tool!) as well as holding their own. Highly recommend.

Not what I expected but overall satisfied

I bought a small bag of this mica to try. I wasn't sure if it would give me the 'red' color I was looking for. I made a batch of CP soap and it didn't come out 'red' but then again maybe it was me having not put enough. Even though I didn't get the 'red' I was looking for, I love the 'pink' color that it gave me. I was told that Trial by Fire does give you the true 'red' so I will be ordering it.
