Our Test Results:

Produces a coral pink colour in clear MP Soap Base and a peach tone with little to no shimmer in white Melt & Pour Soap Base. The easiest way to incorporate this mica in MP Soap is to moisten it with some Isopropyl Alcohol, glycerine or water making a slurry, then mix in.  A ratio of 1:3 works well.  Hydrating with oil is recommended for CP soap if using within the soap, as a guide use a ratio of 1:4 mica to oil works well for us with most micas. We always recommend small batch testing before embarking on a larger project.
pH sensitivity:  Stable in high pH products such as CP Soap. 
Colour Fading: Stable
Colour Bleeding (Migration): Non bleeding, suitable for embedding,layering and swirling.

Note: Our Micas are packed in resealable jars unless purchasing 500g and above or surplus stock.
