We didn't think our red could get any better, but we achieved the impossible! Rey, our in-house chemist, has created a bold true red that almost brought tears to my eyes the first time I saw it. This mica is RED. Not only is it red in cold process, it is red in the jar. You will not find a better red mica for cold process than this one. If you do, we will refund your money!
This is a Nurture Soap® custom color. This color is for soap only.
It is a common misconception that red micas may contain carmine. They do not. Carmine is used to make pink micas and it instantly fades in soap! If you have a pink mica and it fades to nothing in cold process, it most likely contains carmine. Nurture Soap is 100% dedicated to vegan and cruelty free, even from our suppliers.
A true red color is the nemesis of every soap maker. It is incredibly hard to find a true red that won't change color, fade out, bleed or migrate in soap - but here it is! This is the holy grail of red.
As with any red color, be sure to not use to much as it may stain washcloths if too much is used. It is best to use as an accent color rather than a base color. Completely gel your soaps to achieve the most beautiful, bright, and brilliant red.
