Sugar and spice and everything nice - That's what this mica is made of. There's just enough red in this mix to keep you on your toes. A little bit of sass to the sweetness. Just like sugar and spice.
This color is a mix of brown and red. It reminds me of the leaves of autumn with their spicy tones setting the woods ablaze in a showy display of warm ochre tones, reminiscent of cool nights and bonfires, warm apple cider, and the radiant heat of the wood stove.
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.
Nurture is so AWESOME! Quite possibly THE MOST generous, customer-loving company I know of, because I always receive a wonderful sample in my order, and it's always something perfectly tailored to things I love or things that make my life easier! It definitely doesn't go unappreciated, and Nurture- YOU FOLKS ROCK!!! I received this BEAUTIFUL color as a gift with an order, and it felt like Nurture had been reading my mind (I've had my eye on this mica)! You're gonna laugh though because this color is so visually warm & cozy that it really DOES look like sugar & spices! So much so, that without even thinking about it, I instinctively smelled the bottle, thinking it was going to smell spicy & sweet!😂 I literally laughed out loud at myself when I did that & had to remind myself that micas don't smell! But that's how stunning this color looks! It's so perfectly fitting to its name that you almost forget it's a mica & not actual spices! I've used this color for MP embeds atop CP loaves, and it's just as gorgeous in application as it is in the jar! This shade is all things "sweetly comfy", and I absolutely LOVE it!
Love this color!
This is a beautiful color! I used it in CP soap and I got the most beautiful soft, sparkling, pink color!
