Maya Gold is perfect for when you want a true gold in your soaps. It is a high simmer mica that is the perfect gold in cold process. It will not fade or turn colors and is one of the truest golds we have found. In clear melt and pour, Maya Gold will really shine and sparkle!
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 oils, now use 1.5 tsp polysorbate 80 and 1.5 tsp. oils. The addition of polysorbate will prevent staining or a mica powder ring around the tub.
