WHAT IS MICA GOLD?
This gold pearlescent, sparkling mica pigment is mostly composed of mica and titanium dioxide. Micas are considered to be a recognised tint that has been extracted naturally. Separate mica platelets are covered with approved pigments to achieve the colourant.
The multi-sided colour is what gives micas its distinctive sparkle and shine. It works best in clear products such as clear melt-and-pour soap as the glitter needs light in order to reflect. One good thing about Mica Gold is that it has a tendency not to clump in cold process soap. The problem though is that it also has a tendency to be unstable in cold process soap.
Titanium dioxide is a solidifying, whitewashing, lubricating component added to this pigment to safeguard the skin. It is added to permit a level of steadiness not afforded by mica. The end result of the combination of mica, gold pigments and titanium dioxide is a pearlescent Mica Gold pigment that is equally steady and not clumpy.
The 15g option is parceled in a clear vial while larger options come parceled in reclosable ziplock standup pouches.
