Shamrock Green Mica: This bright, vibrant mica is a bleeding color but makes for a wonderful green! It's safe to use in lip products but does take a little extra work stirring in melt and pour. Use it whenever you need a strong green color.
Not recommended for cold process soap. This color will morph.
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.
