Vintage Velvet is unlike any other color we offer. It is blue with purple tones that can be seen in cold and hot process. Because of the underlying purple tones, this blue looks almost denim in color, but not quite. It has a special something about it that makes it stand out without being loud. In clear melt and pour, the subtle color variances really appear, making this one of the most unique and interesting micas here at Nurture.
INCI: Mica, titanium dioxide, ultramarine blue, tin oxide
Safe for eyes and external use. Not safe for lips.
Micron size: 10-60
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.
We cannot recommend our green and blue micas for bath bombs, since the color additives contained in them (chromium oxide green and ultramarine blue) are not approved by the FDA for use on lips or other mucous membranes. Although bath products have historically been considered externally applied cosmetics, bath bombs are different because the product is put in the bath and there is prolonged exposure to mucous membranes. We have personally clarified this information with the Director of the Color Certification Branch of the FDA. Have questions? Contact Us.

Our mica powders are tested in soaps by us but are perfect in all types of projects including painting, crafts, resin casting, nail polish, bath bombs, bubble bars and more! We have searched the globe for the highest quality mica powders you will find anywhere. Amaranth Pink Mica Powder is based on muscovite mica, a naturally occurring mineral used for its brilliance, shimmer, and shine.
