Slight Color Change as of March 2015: Please note that while the INCI is still the same the Shamrock Green mica is a little greener and has less blue tones in it.
Shamrock Green Mica: This bright, vibrant mica is a bleeding color but makes for a wonderful green! It's safe to use in lip products but does take a little extra work stirring in melt and pour. Use it whenever you need a strong green color.
NOTE: This color does not stay green in CP 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.

Reply from Bramble BerryHi Cardena! I'm sorry this color wasn't your favorite. This color works great in melt and pour soap and lip balm, but as the description says, it will not stay green in cold process soap. To get a nice green in your cold process soap, you can use Green Chrome (oxide) Pigment. Also, the Talk It Out Tuesday: Colorants post has a lot of great information on how to color your soap. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!
