Merlot (Crimson) Sparkle Mica: Just right for mixing with Berry Wine, AppleJack Peel, or any time you need an incredible rich red. To create a good 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 and eye shadows
Ingredients: Botanical Name: Mica, Iron Oxide (CI 77491)Common Name: Mica, Iron Oxide
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Cindy! I'm so glad you love our Merlot Sparkle Mica! The reason it turned that color in your Shea Melt and Pour Base is because it is a white base. When you mix a color into an opaque base, like the shea, it will lighten the color. Just like mixing white paint with red, you would get pink. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
