'Pass' for cold process whitening
I was excited to read the reviews by other soapers using this in place of Ti dioxide for whitening. However, my experience was very different. I used this super pearly white as a replacement for Ti Dioxide in a tried and true recipe and experienced results that were completely different. First of all, it did not whiten my pale yellow batter at all. In fact, this mica refused to even blend with my batter but instead just created unattractive, gray-toned swirls that were unacceptable to me. I've also saved off a little batter in a couple other standard batches and got the same result. My conclusion is that this mica would probably be good in MP soap and possibly for top decoration in CP but certainly not as a white colorant in CP. I won't be purchasing this one again.

Hi Carrie! I'm sorry you were disappointed with this colorant in your cold process soap. We found it can be a nice additive in CP soap as seen in the Christmas Tree Swirl Cold Process tutorial. Though, it is not a great substitute for Titanium Dioxide to whiten CP soap batter. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Pearly and shimmery
I have a question here..Are these colorants that say they are pearly and or shimmery have the glitter in it?? I do not want those glitter pieces stuck to me after using the soap nor do my customers..That is why I have not ordered these kinds yet..So if they don't leave glitter on you I will purchase several colors of this product.. Thank you, Carolyn

Hi Carolyn! Our Micas, including the Super Pearly White Mica, do not have glitter in them. They will not leave any glitter on your skin after using soap colored with them! I will email you personally to discuss this further.

A must-have white!
Absolutely my favorite mica, hands down. Has totally replaced TD for me. HOWEVER, would it kill you to put it in a container? The bags, which aren't even resealable, are just a disaster waiting to happen. Please rethink your packaging on this otherwise fabulous product.

Hi Rebecca! I'm so glad you like this color! We've found the bags are a great way to ship the product securely. As you probably are aware, the 1 ounce sizing is packaged in jars. However, to keep the bulk pricing at a cost effective level, they are double bagged for shipping. It is also more cost effective than buying 16 one ounce sizes so I hope this helps to make up for your disappointment. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!

My newest favorite mica!
I love this mica. The pearlescent shimmer is just gorgeous. No more plain TD for me!

A must-have for me!
I don't use plain titanium dioxide any more. This is my go-to white. I use it in pretty much every soap I make, and I have never had any kind of problem with it.
