Cellini Blue Mica: This is a deep, vibrant teal blue color. It is also an edible mica so it can be used in body dust, body butters and lip butters. This mica does require a bit of TLC when stirring in. We recommend mixing it with your fragrance oil (that you're using for the batch) as it is not as easily dispersible as our other micas.
Safe for use in lip balms and eye shadows
To Use in Cold Process Soap: This mica will morph to purple or mauve in cold process soap. Combine the mica with a light, liquid oil such as sweet almond or sunflower oil at a rate of 1 Tbsp of oil to 1 tsp of mica. Increase the amounts as needed. Add this color mixture at trace. To create create the beautiful purple in the cold process sample above, we used ¾ teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.
To Use 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.
