Sparkle Violet Mica: This is a white/violet mica. The mica platelets are coated on one side with a lovely white pearl and the other side with a light violet, making this color an opalescent sheen of violet. It is sophisticated and looks amazing in both white soap (where it adds a hint of sophisticated violet sheen) and clear 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.
