Mica Colour - Black Iron Oxide
All our highest purity cosmetic grade CP Soap coloured micas have been formulated to be tolerant to very high pH environments. They will not morph and look stunning when used in both CP and M&P soaps. They are all super natural colourants and conform to all EU regulations for use in cosmetics.
Coloured micas are very sparkly and when used in M&P their vibrancy and sparkle is magnified even more. When mixed into the opaque batter in cold process soap they loose much of their sparkle but still retain their colour but less saturated. When used to decorate the surface, using many popular techniques such as mica oil swirls, our colours will really make your products stand out from the crowd.
