Coral Mica: This is a multi-use colorant that you can use in lip balms (yes, it's approved), melt and pour or all types of cold process soap. While the color stays true in lip balms and melt and pour, it does morph to a slightly more orange tone in cold process soap, so keep that in mind if you're doing cold process. This color is a little more difficult to mix into melt and pour than most micas so we recommend mixing it with the fragrance oil before attempting to stir in. To create a good color in cold process soap, we used 1 teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.
NOTE: This is a bleeding/migrating color. Please remember this when designing your soap.Safe for use in lip balms and eye shadows
