Mimosa Mica Powder is a bold golden yellow color that works wonderfully in soaps. It is a lab created mica based on fluorphlogopite, a synthetic mica formulated to be exceptionally brilliant and bright. It is created to be identical to naturally occurring muscovite mica, yet superior in color intensity.
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.
Fluorphlogopite, titanium dioxide, tin oxide, iron oxide
Good news: Beautiful Golden Yellow color. Can't perfectly describe it; but it's something like combination of beeswax color, gold, and a splash of yellow. I do have a huge collection of gold and yellow micas, and none is similar to this one.
Bad news: Price
It was a little darker than I was expecting though definitely still a beautiful/saturated color. A little goes a long way to achieve a deep golden yellow color in cold process soap.
Once again Nurture Soap micas have come through! This mica cures to a deep yellow shade in cp soap.
Yellow is yellow, so they say. But I have a few different yellows in my repertoire right now and this one is one of them. Very vibrant, very pretty. Works well in CP soap. Definitely on my "will order again" list.
all of their colorants are superior
we buy most of our colorants from nurture because they are a superior quality.
