Our new batch of Rasberry Red Pink mica is deeper in color than our previous batches. It is less pink and more red. Any lot after lot # 850301 will be the deeper and more intense Raspberry Red formulation. The ingredients have not changed.
Raspberry Red is a deep, intense pink bordering on red. It is great as a mixer (add a little Red Vibrance to get a more true red), and also great all on its own.
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.
