Mica (Lipsafe) Bright Red – 10g


$17.25 (Incl. GST)

Micas are particles of colour that when added to specific products they produce beautiful light reflective colour. Some also shine in Cold Process Soap when swirled through near or on the surface.

Use Levels:  Can be used at any level as skin safe.

Typical use Levels: Lip Balm 1-10%,   Soap 1-5%,  Shimmer Creams 0.5-3%,  Pressed make-up 20-50%,  Lose powder: 0-40%,  Surfactant wash-off product 0-1%, Gel base (hair gel etc) 1-5%

Formulating Notes:  If you wish to add shimmer to a wash-off surfactant product or a gel it is important that a suspending agent such as Carbomer is used to provide the mica particles with a structure to be supported in.  Mica will gather at the top or bottom of the product if no thickener/ suspending agent is used and may interfere with how the product is dispensed.

Mica is generally added to the formula after cool down as high temperatures can affect the shimmer of the mica.

Adding Mica can increase the bio-burden of your formula so we recommend you use a broad spectrum preservative.

Ingredients: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, CI 77491

It is difficult to capture the colour of this mica because it shimmers and reflects light that makes it appear lighter in a photo, but I think the petals are a very close colour match.
