Cellini Red Mica: This is a wonderful red that is approved for use in lip products. In soap (cold process and melt and pour), it goes a nice peach/orange color. To create a solid color in cold process soap, we used ¾ teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.
Safe for use in lip balms
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.
