Gold Sparkle Mica: Fabulous for adding just that chic touch to your soap. To create a good color in cold process soap, we used ½ teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.Safe for use in lip balms and eye shadows
To use this mica in Melt and Pour Soap: Wet the mica with rubbing alcohol until a liquid slurry is made. This usually is about a 1:1 mix of mica and rubbing alcohol. Add the desired amount of the slurry to the melted soap and stir to combine.
To use this mica in Cold Process Soap: Combine the mica with a light, liquid oil such as sweet almond or sunflower oil. Mix the mica at a rate of 1 Tbsp of oil to 1 tsp of mica. Increase the amounts as needed. Add this color mixture at trace.

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Pamela! I'm glad you think our Gold Sparkle Mica is beautiful! Though, I'm sorry you did not think there was enough information on the product page. Micas are fine and easier to incorporate than oxides, so dispersing micas before adding them to your soap is optional. They are oil soluble so if you are wanting to disperse first mix into about 1 tablespoon of a lightweight carrier oil, like Sweet Almond. For more information on micas check our Sunday Night Spotlight: Mica Colorants blog post.
