My Red Obsession Mica


The B-E-S-T!Looking for red that performs well in CP soap? This is it! The best of the best, as always from Nurture Soap. I love this company. - Beth

This is My Red Obsession Mica. I was literally obsessed with finding the perfect red mica color. One that would not bleed, migrate, stain washcloths, turn pink, had no dyes and acted dependably.

Other names could have been 49 tries, 100mph, and seeing red. Why? Because that's how it was. I made 49 red blends and tested them in CP soap before choosing this one. I was moving so fast I couldn't think straight, and I saw red everywhere! Driving down the road I would see a red car and think "I want that color!" I even wore red shirts for inspiration.

When I was finally done, I made a loaf of soap with this color and just stared at it. My red-loving heart swelled with pride.

Since this is a custom mica blend, it will not be as bright red as a pigment made with dyes. To brighten this red, you may add a touch of our Really Red! pigment powder. We think this color is plenty red enough and bright on its own!

Because this red contains no dyes or color additives that need certification, it is safe for all types of products including body butter, eyeshadow, lotions, bath bombs, etc!

Depending on use rate, you could get ever-so-slightly pink suds but it will not stain or bleed into other colors. It plays nice. It's a nice well-behaved red. It's the Holy grail of red. This red is my baby. I hope you love it as much as I do!

This is my go to red for my cold process soap, especially Christmas theme, I have used it in bathbombs without issue to my tub, with Poly 80 of course

Gorgeous Red

This red is gorgeous! I use micas to airbrush bath bombs and sadly, despite using Polysorbate 80, this mica wreaked havoc on my tub. It is such a pretty red and such a red red. I'm afraid to try it again with bath bombs. I bet it would be very pretty in soap tho.

Wonderful Red!

I really needed a good red for some Christmas and 4th of July soaps. This did wonderfully! I had to add a little more than other micas, but it was still great. It doesn't make a mess in the shower so that is another plus!

This is my go-to red!

I use this red for pretty much everything. Cold process soaps, bath bombs, M&P embeds, etc. It is a very pretty red. I've tried so many others but this one is my favorite.

Perfect shade

This mica worked perfectly in cold process soap!
