Potent Purple Mica Powder


This mica has been reformulated as of 10/15/2016. It is now different in texture and shade but looks the same in cold process soap. In fact, we like it better! It is much more reliable than our previous Potent Purple, and has less tendency to go gray in soap.

Potent purple is one of our most distinct mica colors. It is a sophisticated purple that is almost black. In cold and hot process soaps this color can be a trickster. I have used this color many times with the exact same use rate and recipe, and I get varying results each time. Sometimes it will turn the most gorgeous dark smoky amethyst color. Other times it will turn gray. Potent purple does what it wants when it wants!

The absolute best use I have seen for this color is in clear melt and pour to make blackberry embeds. This is the truest blackberry color we have ever seen. This color can be very hard to achieve with color mixing, but Potent purple nails it every time!

Polysorbate 80 must be used when coloring bath bombs with micas. This ingredient helps incorporate mica in bath bombs to prevent staining and will prevent a mica powder ring in the bathtub.

This item ships free to 48 states.
