Prop 65: Titanium dioxide (airborne, unbound particles of respirable size) is on the Proposition 65 list because it can cause cancer. Exposure to titanium dioxide may increase the risk of cancer. Once incorporated into a liquid or solid base it is no longer airborne and falls off the Prop 65 list.

• Use rate in cold & hot process soaps: 1-2 teaspoons per pound of oils.
• Use rate in melt & pour soaps: .5 teaspoons per pound of oils.

~ More or less can be added to achieve your desired color. These usage rates are recommended for no colored lather. ~

If using in bath bombs, add polysorbate 80 at half your oils. For example, if your oil = 3 teaspoons, use polysorbate at 1.5 teaspoons. This will help prevent a color ring around the tub.

Pigmented Black

I used the same amount of mica I normally use to test how pigmented this black was, and it came out perfect.

I wanted to try something other than charcoal for black stripes and this nocturnal mica worked perfectly. A true black color and no bleeding at all.

True black

I used to use charcoal to get the black color but it turns out more gray. This gave me a true black color in CP soap, but I might have used too much because my suds had a black hint.. so be careful with amount!

andrea berg (Guatemala City, GT)

I use a little in my activated charcoal soap and the black is perfect.

Nocturnal Mica

This mica works really well if you are wanting black without using charcoal for color. I have used it as a main color in soap and as a secondary color.


Makes a nice black in cold process soap.
