Orchid Purple mica pops with color! It is just a bit more subdued than our Purple Vibrance mica. It is a very dependable purple that works brilliantly in cold process and hot process soaps. If you are looking for a purple that will not change color or give you unexpected surprises in soaps, you must try this! Many purples can morph in soap, but Orchid purple behaves beautifully.
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.

OMG.... beautiful shade of purple. Behaved perfectly in CP soap. Love love love it!
Incredible color, stunning blender!
This mica was the star of my latest CP batch! I've used it before with gorgeous results, but for this project, I needed a bold, rich, sultry, deep plumb color & didn't have one on hand. Hmmmm... What to do? I blended this Orchid mica with Nurture's "My Red Obsession" mica (just a touch more "Orchid" than "Red Obsession"), and the results were jaw dropping!!! Absolutely ROYAL looking, and in CP... WOWZA!!! This mica has always been a staple color in my collection (and always will be!), but I was just floored by how beautifully it blended to make an exquisite customizable color as well! This just opened up a whole world of new possibilities for me, and next I think I'll try blending it with Nurture's "Silver Mist" mica next! Its multifaceted hue makes it breathtaking on its own, but also allows for some seriously awesome blending possibilities & I intend to explore that further with this color! As always, Nurture doesn't disappoint with their extraordinary selection of top-notch, high quality micas! I buy ALL my micas from Nurture, as this is the one company where all my colors consistently turn out excellent in every batch of soap I make! I've never been disappointed! THANK YOU NURTURE!
Haven’t used it yet but I plan on it. I have never in the 6 years of making soap ever had a problem with Carrie’s colors! Only place I get my colorant from!
