Description 


Cellini Red Mica:
This is a wonderful red that is approved for use in lip products. In soap (cold process and melt and pour), it goes a nice peach/orange color. To create a solid color in cold process soap, we used ¾ teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.

Safe for use in lip balms 

Ingredients:
Botanical Name:  Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), D&C Red No. 7 (CI 15850), Hydrogenated Polysobutene, Palmitic Acid
Common Name:  Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Red 7, Hydrogenated Polysobutene, Palmitic Acid

Great in Balm but not Lipstick
I love the color in my lip balm but it does not turn out the same in my lipstick probably due to zinc oxide. Still searching for something like Chilli Red in lipstick. Please recommend if any.

Beautiful...Orange?!
Soaping Lesson No. 1 - read, read, and re-read the descriptions about micas that morph colors! I learned the hard way about Cellini Red Mica. I now have an orange colored peppermint soap, and I have no earthly idea what to do with it. If I ever need a vibrant orange soap, however, this is my go-to for sure!

Great for Lip Gloss and bath salts
I use this in my peppermint lip gloss and bath salts. It stays red, it does not turn orange like in soap. Just in case anyone was wondering I thought I would add that info.

Pretty good
First of all, beautiful color! Though I hoped it would stay pink in melt and pour, which it didn't. Also it didn't turn quite as orange as I thought it would in cold process! Does it change with time? I used the same amount as in the description, and it's still quite pink. Beautiful, but not quite what I was expecting.

Hi Marte! I'm glad you like this color! In melt and pour, this color turns a pretty peachy orange. The final color of your cold process depends on your recipe! For instance, if your recipe has a lot of yellowish olive oil, the color may have a more yellow tint. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!

Nice reddish pink in lip balm, beautiful tangerine orange in scrubs and lotions
I really like this colorant. It has become one of my favorites. It is very predictable and consistent and a little goes a long long way. I started using it to make a vegan lip balm with all botanical oils and the color is a beautiful fresh tulip reddish pink. People just gravitate toward this color in a lip balm. I started using it in my Orange & Ylang Ylang Body Cream and discovered that the color perfectly describes the scent of that product between saturated tangerine and cantaloupe. Perfect for a orange and floral blend. The color was consistent when I started using it for a sugar scrub AND a melt and pour shea butter soap of the same scent. I have been really happy with this colorant.
