Wonderful white!This mica is amazing! Blends in effortlessly and virtually replaces the need for TD. So much easier to deal with, reliable and consistent batch after batch. My only regret is not buying this magical stuff sooner! - Susan
Winter White Mica Powder is a bright white color that works wonderfully in soaps. It is a lab-created mica based on fluorphlogopite, a synthetic mica formulated to be exceptionally brilliant and bright. It is created to be identical to naturally occurring muscovite mica, yet superior in color intensity.
This can be used as an alternative to Titanium Dioxide. The samples shown in our pictures are typical use rates of 1 tsp. per pound which is not enough to significantly whiten soap.
To use as an alternative to titanium dioxide 3 tsp. of Winter White mica should be used per pound of oils.This will result in a much brighter white and there is no speckling as titanium dioxide can sometimes do.
I'm switching from TD as I'm tired of the struggle. Used this the first time yesterday and it is wonderful. Bright white that looks awesome when curing. Will keep this in stock!
LOVE THIS MICA!
I am so happy I decided to try this as a TD replacement...it's fabulous! So tired of fighting with the TD...the whipping, mixing, stirring...ugh. No more! This works just as good without the fuss, I will never go back to TD. So pleased with the performance of this mica, no specks and is just as white. Thank you NS for making my life easier.
Great and smooth
Great white color
A good alternative to TD.
We had been using Titanium Dioxide (TD) and decided recently to try this Winter White Mica (WWM). After using it as white, and to lighten up various colors, we have completely abandoned TD. Our soaps are olive-coconut oil based. We liked how TD would give us a white, but it had some annoyances that we lived with: 1) When we wanted white we had to switch to a water dispersant for TD, while using oil for the mica colors; 2) The TD soap mixture would always be thicker and was a different consistency than the others mica color mixes, which added a little complexity to the process. We have now been using WWM for many batches and it delivers a gorgeous white, and lightening of other colors, with neither of the annoyances of TD. We've been using 3x WWM compared to the colored micas - which we believe was prescribed on Nurture Soap's website, and it works perfectly. It also means we have a larger stock of it than the colored micas, and also compared to TD.
