Our Test Results:

Produces a purple colour in clear MP Soap Base and a mauve colour with no shimmer in white MP Soap Base. In Cold Process Soap it produces a mid tone purple colour. For dark purple in Cold Process Soap use double strength or go with Orchid Mica. In our tests Grape is not as robust as previously, so you do need to use more if swirling through Cold Process Soap. We recommend a trial batch before embarking on large scale batches
pH sensitivity: Fairly stable in high pH products such as CP Soap
Colour Fading: This mica is a pigment and is resistant to fading
Colour Bleeding (Migration): Non bleeding Colour

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

September 2019.  Change of ingredient.  Please note amended name and INCI.  We have been advised of an amendment in this product.  If using in high pH you may require more than previously and it may have some morphing.  We recommend a small test batch, and using more colourant as necessary.
