If you love the look of glitter on soaps but don't want to use it, Snowflake Sparkle mica is a great and less expensive alternative. Adding Snowflake Sparkle to the tops of soaps will add a glitter effect, but without the potential scratchiness.
Another great thing about this mica? It can add sparkle to soaps! If used at about 2 teaspoons per pound of oils in cold and hot process, this mica will give your soaps a subtle shimmer. Used in clear melt and pour the shimmer effect will be much more dramatic. This is a mica that should be in every soaper's arsenal!
