Barely there

I've used this in a few batches of soap now (cold process and hot process), and I find that using 1 tsp per pound barely shows itself in the finished product. I was hoping that the mica would shimmer more or at least have a lightening effect. I just made a batch with 2 tsp per pound of soap, so I am hoping that goes better. Either way, I'm not sure I'd buy this mica again.

Great Color in Cold Process and Rebatch Soap

I just received a sample packet of this color, along with 6 others. I wish I could show you the true "sparkle" this mica gives to my lavender colored CP soap. I found it caused fast tracing, but I did use after I had added my soap to the coloring cup. I had some greyish colored soap that needed rebatching, I used a little TD mixed with water, added to the crockpot, then added some of the Violet Sparkle Mica mixed in castor oil. My soap is green?-but it is has such a beautiful sheen to it, due to this Mica. Ordering more-now.

Hi Karen! In our tests and recipes, we've found that this color creates a nice sparkly purple in melt and pour soap. I'll be emailing you personally to ask you more about your recipe that turned green!
