Lime Appeal mica is an electric green. It is a bright and bold color with yellow undertones that is almost neon. In cold process it will mellow a bit but still offer a gorgeous yellow-green that pops with color. In clear melt and pour, this color is very bright! Lime Appeal can turn a bit gray or brown during saponification, but will change back to a bright green within 24-48 hours.
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.
This is such a "fun" green. I use it mixed with green neon for my citrus scented soap and on its own in lime scented soaps. I split the batter, using the mix at various amounts to get a nice variation in my 3 shade swirl. I mix the mica directly into my unscented soap batter with a wire whisk at emulsion.
Love this color!
Stays true in CP. One of my favorite go to greens.
My favorite green
This is my go to when it comes to green. You can mix it to darken or lighten it and you really don't need anything else.
A cheerful green!
This color really popped in a CP soap I made. A vibrant grren that reminds me of bright green grass. I would purchase this again.
