Light Gold Mica:This light color is a sophisticated, shiny white/gold combination mica. It is approved for use in lip colors as well. Use it to blend or just add a hint of color in your clear soaps. To create the color in the sample of cold process soap above, we used 1 teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.
