Yellow Mica: This is a bright yellow mica that is safe for use in lip products. Because of its oil solubility, it is a little more difficult to mix into melt and pour than most micas so we recommend mixing it with the fragrance oil before attempting to stir in. To create the color in the sample of cold process soap above, we used 2 teaspoons of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.
Eye Safe: Yes
Lip Safe: Yes
Skin Safe: Yes
To use this mica in Melt and Pour Soap: Wet the mica with fragrance or essential oil. It is not able to be mixed with rubbing alcohol llike typical micas. Add the desired amount of the slurry to the melted soap and stir to combine.
To use this mica in Cold Process Soap: Combine the mica with a light, liquid oil such as sweet almond or sunflower oil. Mix the mica at a rate of 1 Tbsp of oil to 1 tsp of mica. Increase the amounts as needed. Add this color mixture at trace.
