Color your soaps, lip balms, and mineral makeup with professional micas, pigments and oxides! Mica pigments are the name of a group of natural occurring minerals which can range from being completely matte to sparkling or opalescent. Mica pigments are a purified and crushed mica mineral. Mica pigments may be used to color lipstick, lip gloss, lip balm, mineral makeup, melt and pour soap bases, cold process soap and other things such as stampers and embossing. Mica colorants are popular in soap making because most do not bleed or morph. Micas are fun and easy to work with because their color ranges go way beyond the rainbow and mixing colors creates even more unique and beautiful shades and brilliant color effects.
