Yellow Mica: This is a bright yellow mica that is safe for use in lip products. Because of its oil solubility, it is a little more difficult to mix into melt and pour than most micas so we recommend mixing it with the fragrance oil before attempting to stir in. To create the color in the sample of cold process soap above, we used 2 teaspoons of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.
Safe for use in lip balms and eye shadows
INCI: Titanium Dioxide, Yellow 5 Lake, Hydrogenated Polybutene, Mica, Palmitic Acid

Hi Kimberly! I'm sorry to hear this mica faded in your soap! Sometimes this can happen if your soap is left out in direct sunlight. I would recommend storing your soap in a dark, cool place :). You may also want to increase how much mica you use in your cold process soap. In cold process soap, I recommend 2 tsp. per pound of soap to achieve good color. I will be emailing you personally to help you troubleshoot, so please look for my email :)
