Our Test Results:

Produces a lustrous, sparkly, white colour in clear MP Soap Base and won't shine well in white MP Soap Base. The easiest way to incorporate this mica in MP Soap is to moisten it with some Isopropyl Alcohol making a slurry, then mix in.  A ratio of 1:1 works well.  In CP can be used as veins of colour swirled through a discolouring Fragrance in a blind swirl or dusted on top of soap for full sparkle effect. 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.
pH sensitivity: Stable in high pH products such as CP Soap (will not shine so much)
Colour Fading: This colour is not light sensitive and not prone to fading
Colour Bleeding (Migration): Non bleeding, suitable for embedding, layering and swirling

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