Lustrous Brown is not your ordinary brown mica. It is a beautiful brown mica with bright sparks of gold throughout. It is a two-tone mica, and when applied to the skin it has a gorgeous golden hue. This is the prettiest brown mica we have ever seen!
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.
