Scarlet Sparkle mica is much like our Red Vibrance mica, but with a lot more sparkle! Because of its high micron size, Scarlet Sparkle add a lot more, well...sparkle! In cold and hot process soaps the sparkle will not really shine through, but in clear melt and pour this mica makes quite the impact!
Recommended use rate in cold and hot process soap is 1 tsp. per pound of oils. For melt and pour, the recommended use rate is .5 tsp. per pound of base. To use in bath bombs polysorbate 80 must be used. Use polysorbate at half your oils. For example, if you use three teaspoons of oils, now use 1.5 tsp polysorbate 80 and 1.5 tsp. oils. The addition of polysorbate will prevent staining or a mica powder ring around the tub.
