Loganberry Mica is a luxuriously, sparkly, fine, dark red mica. As with all micas, this colour will not shine or sparkle in an opaque Melt and Pour Soap Base and turns the soap a pastel shade, but shines in transluscent and clear bases, and can be mixed with matte pigments to give them shine.
Suggested Usage: Start with about ¼ teaspoon per 500g of scrub, bath bombs, etc. For Melt and Pour Soap, mix 1 teaspoon pigment with 1 tablespoon of 99 percent isopropyl alcohol. Add ½ tsp. of dispersed mica at a time to the melted soap. For Cold Process Soap, mix 1 teaspoon with 1 tablespoon of lightweight oil. Add 1 tsp. of dispersed mica at a time to the soap. We recommend adding Polysorbate 80 when using in Bath Bombs.

Our Test Results:
Produces a sparkly, bright wine red colour in clear MP Soap Base and a pastel shade with virtually 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 vials, tubs or jars unless purchasing 500g and above or surplus stock.
