Perfect

This is the all-around winner for white mica. I've used it alone in clear soaps or to sparkle up tie-dye soap, dusted the tops of my HP loaves, painted on bath bombs, and made shimmer mists and lotions. Love it!

I Need a Pearl Mica

Can I use this in a body butter?

My most used mica

I find this mica to be the most versatile. You can use it alone or mix it with other micas or pigments to lighten them up. I haven't replaced TD yet but I do add some with my TD and it gives it a little more "pearlescent" color rather than flat white. It is also nice for dusting on the top of CP soaps.

A little goes a long way!

I like to use this mica in tiny amounts to add sparkle to clear soaps. It doesn't leave any shimmer on the skin.

'Pass' for cold process whitening

I was excited to read the reviews by other soapers using this in place of Ti dioxide for whitening. However, my experience was very different. I used this super pearly white as a replacement for Ti Dioxide in a tried and true recipe and experienced results that were completely different. First of all, it did not whiten my pale yellow batter at all. In fact, this mica refused to even blend with my batter but instead just created unattractive, gray-toned swirls that were unacceptable to me. I've also saved off a little batter in a couple other standard batches and got the same result. My conclusion is that this mica would probably be good in MP soap and possibly for top decoration in CP but certainly not as a white colorant in CP. I won't be purchasing this one again.

Hi Carrie! I'm sorry you were disappointed with this colorant in your cold process soap. We found it can be a nice additive in CP soap as seen in the Christmas Tree Swirl Cold Process tutorial. Though, it is not a great substitute for Titanium Dioxide to whiten CP soap batter. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
