Shimmer gold is a high micron super shimmery mica that sparkles like no other gold! In cold and hot process, this color not only is a truly fantastic gold, but it is sparkly, too! To achieve maximum sparkle in cold and hot process use at least 2 teaspoons per pound of oils.
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.
