Mica colours are popular for soap making, bath bombs, make-up and other decorative applications. However, not every colour may be suitable for every application. be sure to review the specifications of each product before purchasing.

Happy with this mica

Used it for my rose scented CP soaps and it’s a pretty red colour, looks great without using much mica. As the soap has cured the colour got a bit brighter.

Not as red as expected

I had hoped this mica to be a ruby type of red, instead it comes out a very brownish red in my soaps using both white and clear bases.

Disappointing muddy pinky brown

I want a deep dark red, and I have not yet found one, despite trying several micas. Both Red Pearl and Red Wine, which promised a rich red, are very similar to Rose Gold, Skin Tone Pink, and Red Mauve. The photos comparing Red Wine and Red Pearl are 3/16th of a teaspoon mixed with 20g of white sugar scrub. You can hardly tell the difference between the two. The other photo uses only Red Pearl and compares different amounts of mica: 3/16th and 1/4 teaspoons. As you can imagine, 1/4 tsp in 20g of scrub is a LOT! But even then, all I get is deeper shade of muddy pinky brown. Maybe its different in soap, as others don't seem to have had the same issue.
