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. To create create a good color in cold process, we used ¾ teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.
NOTE: This is a bleeding/migrating color. Please remember this when designing your soap. Also, Cellini Blue will morph to purple or mauve in cold process (CP) 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.
