Give it a chance!!!

As a beginner cold process soap maker, I am SOOOOO glad that the more experienced people take the time to review their colours and fragrance performances on Brambleberry!!!! I, too, gave into the fear when my soap turned a muddy olive green with this product. But there was no going back, so I insulated overnight and this morning WOW! It is the perfect bright kelly green that I wanted. Very pleased. The wait-and-see almost made it more fun. Thank you, previous reviewers: it was great to run to Brambleberry’s website to read about this colour in my moment of panic. It was reassuring and accurate.

Awesome green in CP! DON'T LET THE TEMPORARY COLOR-CHANGE SCARE YOU! :)

This is my new go-to green! At a rate of 1 generous tsp/ppo it is true, vibrant & beautiful in CP/CPOP soap! Does turn a bit olivey when first incorporated, but goes back to a true kelly green quickly! Have also mixed this mica with a bit of BB's "Buttercup" mica to make an amazing shade of lime green (1/4tsp yellow to 1/2tsp green in about 8oz of soap)! That mixture did turn VERY olive-colored when first incorporated, but within a few hours it became the PERFECT shade of lime green! Precisely what I was going for! Will 100% be keeping this color on hand at all times now! EDIT: I truly feel that if you use this mica in CP & then immediately write a review for it, it's going to get some undeserving bad reviews. But, if you wait, it really is a beautiful color! Absolutely, upon initial incorporation of this mica into your soap, you're going to get an alarming shade of pea green/brownish-olive green. BUT... Once the soap begins to cure, it goes back to a true kelly green every time, and is very true to color! In CPOP, the change back to its true, original color tends to happen sooner (within an hour or two), but it WILL return to its true beauty in CP eventually! It was just making me kinda bummed to see such a great mica get many poor reviews, as had I not waited to write my own review for it, I would have probably done the same, not knowing that the color-morphing was temporary. But truly, it IS a wonderful color; spot-on in its picture above, and if you don't mind the temporary, initial color change, you will get beautiful results from it! Every batch I've made with this mica thus far has turned out consistently perfect in color!

Not recommended for CP

I used the Kelly Green with a blue mica I mermaid cupcakes and the green is more of a light brownish-green. Great in MP, but I'm very disappointed. 12 cupcakes wasted

HORRIBLE

Similar to previous reviews, this mica turns your soap to a dark unattractive green. It's no where near close to the beautiful bright green color. My cold process soap is now ruined. Some parts of the soap is turning green, other parts are dark green, and some other parts are purple-ish. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED.

The Kelly Green Mica will initially turn a dark olive green in cold process soap as noted on the product page. Though it will return to its original color after your soap has cured. If you're looking for other green options you may prefer Green Chrome Oxide Pigment.
