We now have a gorgeous coral colour for you, which is suitable for use in soap making, as well as for use on face, nails, lips and eyes .
This safe and non-toxic Coral colour produces a beautiful shimmering and glittering effect and is ideal for colouring lip balms, glosses, lipsticks,
blushers, make-up and creams. It also works well for solid soaps (testing advised in CP soaps first) and fizzy bath bombs. You can even use it for liquid soaps / gels but, as with all powdered pigments, they will sink to the bottom if the consistency is not thick enough. They don't, however, stick to bath surfaces.
When used in solid soaps it produces a lovely, semi-transparent effect. The Pearlescent Pigment consists of Mica (an earth mineral), which is blended with iron oxides and titanium dioxide.
All our Mica Colours and Glitters are sourced ethically, with no use of animal testing or child labour.
How to use
To use in lip or body balms, just add the powder straight to the melted mixture and whisk in thoroughly. You may wish to add more oil to the balm as the powder can have a drying effect.
Alternatively, you can add the colour to some glycerin to form a paste, then add it to your products. You can add the colour straight to our Base Creams & Lotions
, and it will mix in well as long as you stir in thoroughly.
The dosage to use in your products completely depends on the product you're making. For a tinted lip balm/gloss, you need roughly 5-10 grams of colour per 100g of product. The more you add, the more the colour will transfer. So always add less for a coloured balm that you don't want to transfer onto the skin that much, and more for higher pigmentation.
This Pearlescent Colour is made with a blend of natural & synthetic micas; the latter being considered superior to the natural mica as it is brighter and has superior clarity of colour, which means the colour has a more uniform finish, devoid of any sharp edges. This is particularly useful for colouring products used around the delicate eye area.
