Description 

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

Love it!
Absolutely love and recommend this colorant! So easy to blend into my lip glosses, especially with the mini mixer which I also highly recommend. This was my first time using colorant in my lip products, and I'm so pleased with the results, and I'm sure that my customers will agree! Thank you so much BrambleBerry!

Pretty!
I used this in lip balm, and a little went a long way! It's sparkly and very pretty. It mixes well, and I like it a lot :)

Pretty in M&P!
I've used the coral mica in both clear and white M&P base. It's a nice cheery bright coral color in clear. My boyfriend loves it. In white base it has a pink color similar to a baby girl pink. I think it's very cute and would be a good combo when making a Valentines Day or candy kind of soap! Or using the onesie mold for a baby shower!

Coral to the rescue!!
As all CPers know red is really hard to get right. I used to use Bramble Berry's suggestion of Electric Bubble gum with Merlot sparkle mica. While this makes a really nice dark red, it wasn't quite the bright red I was looking for. I was able to create a great bright red that didn't morph using this coral mica as a base and adding small amounts of Nurture Soap's red vibrance mica (a lot like BB's Merlot Sparkle) and TKB Trading's Neon red. Give this a try if you are tinkering for the right red. I find it blends best in oils.
