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 love that I don't have to try so hard to avoid the stark white that makes my soaps look chalky. This is perfect!
Shimer Always Works with Magic
I love the shimmer of this mica! It was perfect to create soaps with a winter snowly appearance, but I know I will be using it year long since it also reminds me of silk when it has been added to soaps. I used it in the white of this Holiday soap.
I use this as a substitute for Titanium Dioxide in my CP soap. Fast delivery
This is the perfect mica to leave that coveted shimmery water in bath bombs! Just remember the poly 80!
