Peach Shimmer Mica:This light peach mica shines in our mineral make up line. Its true peachiness glistens and glimmers when showcased in clear melt and pour soap. We love it!
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.
I love this mica! I have been making soaps and lots of other bath products for a few months now. Yesterday I made my first eye shadows. I used this mica, coral, copper, rose gold, and mermaid blue. My customers want to know if these are "all natural". Could you give me some more info about the colorant ingredients on these.
I understand that the whole earth (as well as us) is made of chemicals! I wish we could change our language and start using "safe chemicals" or something of the sort.
I like to use as little ingredients in my products as possible, but just because they are "natural" doesn't mean they are problem free for everyone. If you're allergic to lavender, you're allergic to lavender. You know? :) Anyway, any layman's terms info I could get would be great!
Thanks so much!
I expected a shimmery peach color in my melt and pour soaps, but what I got was a dull light beige--no shimmer whatsoever. Very, very disappointed.
I use this in cosmetics, and it is gorgeous! It is really pretty when blended with Rose Gold mica!
There was no note about it not being good for CP, so I used it and it turned white. Unfortunately it "ruined" a whole batch of pumpkin soap. Darn. Next time maybe a "no good for CP" warning.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Erin! I'm sorry you were disappointed with this color in your cold process soap. As shown in the picture of CP colored with Peach Shimmer Mica above it does nearly disappear. You can still use this mica with you cold process by mica painting, doing a mica pencil line, or dusting the top of your soap! Check out these techniques in our How to Mica Paint on Cold Process Soap, Striped Berry Champagne Cold Process, and Luck of the Irish Hot Process tutorials.
I used this in a peaches and cream m&p soap and the results were so soft and feminine. A colleague ordered three soaps for her bffs. She requested the Victorian Heart mold as its her favorite. When all was done, she said the soaps smell divine and look elegant. I almost did not want to part with the finished product, but I made myself a bar because they were that beautiful. This mica has a nice golden sparkle too. Truly beautiful!
