new! pearlescent mica colour - mauve
Produces a gorgeous shimmery berry / mauve colour.
This pigment consists of Mica (an earth mineral), which is blended with Titanium & Iron Oxides to produce a stunning dark pink / forest berry / mauve, which looks great in lipstick, lip balm & glosses.
This natural, safe and non-toxic colour produces a beautifully subtle shimmering and glittering effect and is ideal for colouring lip balms, glosses, lipsticks, blushers, eyeshadows, soap, bath bombs, creams and more. You can even use it for liquid soap but, as with all powdered pigments, they will sink to the bottom if the consistency is not thick enough.
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.
You can add 1-3 measured 2ml spoons (2ml-6ml) of this colour powder to 10ml of lip balm. The more you add, the more it will colour your lips!
(In grams, you need roughly 10-30 grams of colour per 100g of product, but always use the minimum if you don't want the colour to transfer.)
