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 

INCI: mica, titanium dioxide, D&C Red 7, hydrogenated polysobutene, palmitic acid.

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.
