Violacious Violet Mica: Use this light shimmery pink purple color when you want more of a satin look than the Violet Pearl provides. As with all micas, this looks better in clear soap than in white soap.
NOTE: This mica disappears in cold process soap and is not recommended for cold process soap. In melt and pour soap, it adds an iridescent violet sheen and is absolutely lovely.Safe for use in 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.
Botanical Name: Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Carmine (CI 75470), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (CI 77510)Common Name: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Carmine, Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide
I love the look of this color. I was wondering if you would use this in bath bombs? Would it stain the tub? Just curious! Thanks!
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Crystal! I'm so glad you love the look of our Violaceous Violet Mica! You can definitely use this in you bath bombs without fear of them staining the tub. See an example of using mica to color a bath bomb our in
Mondo Bath Bombs tutorial. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
I wanted to make a batch of Blueberry~Acai soap, and to color it I knew I'd need a hue that would blend the two, so I purchased your Violaceous Violet [which was a great value on sale this past month!] and 1982 Blue, and mixed them to achieve this--the color came out wonderfully! It made a fantastic pearly periwinkle, that looks just lovely. ^_^ I can't wait to get the other micas I ordered in to experiment more with Mix-n-Match! A quick question, when labeling do I simply put mica, or 'Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Carmine, Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide' on the label after all my other ingredients? And is the Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide what makes this mica unsafe for lip products? I wanted to recreate the color for a matching lip balm, but I'm not sure if I can do that with any of your lip-safe micas :/ none of the ones listed seem to have that deep purplish-blue tint I'm looking for
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Jeannine! I'm so glad our Violaceous Violet was able to help you create the perfect color! When labeling you would list all of the ingredients in the mica as well (Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Carmine, Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide). This mica is not considered lip safe by the manufacturer. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
