This pearlescent, satin-coloured mica pigment mainly comprises of mica and iron oxide.
Micas are categorised as an approved natural colourant that has been mined and then individual mica platelets are coated with approved pigments to achieve the colourant. The multi-sided colour is what gives micas its unmistakeable shimmer and sheen. It works best in clear products such as clear melt and pour soap as the shimmer needs light in order to reflect. One good thing about mica is that it tends not to clump in cold process soap. The down side though is that it tends to be unstable in cold process soap.
The 15g option is packaged in a clear vial whilst larger options come packaged in resealable ziplock standup pouches.
