Lavish lavender is our new favorite purple mica! It is a deep red-blue two-tone mica with a red sheen. It reminds us of fresh bright blue lavender buds. Out of all the purple micas we offer, this one would be the best choice for lavender-inspired soaps due to the similarity in color to the actual buds.
Recommended use rate in cold and hot process soap is 1 tsp. per pound of oils. For melt and pour, the recommended use rate is .5 tsp. per pound of base. To use in bath bombs polysorbate 80 must be used. Use polysorbate at half your oils. For example, if you use three teaspoons of carrier oils, now use 3 tsp of oils and 1.5 tsp. of poly 80. If your bath bombs are too wet, decrease the amount of poly and carriers oil by the same ratio. The addition of polysorbate will prevent staining or a mica powder ring around the tub.
