Mica is the name of a group of naturally occurring Earth's minerals which are mined from around the world, purified, and crushed into fine powders. Our cosmetic grade mica is a FDA approved and used to add pearlescent sheen, metallic shimmer, or iridescence to CP and HP soaps as well as lip products, bath & body products, eye cosmetics and more. These powders are derived from the mineral Muscovite Mica which grows in layers and is ground to create these pearly translucent powders. Mica has a high reflective quality and is prized for its shimmery, pearlescent sheen. For this reason, it works best in products where it can get a lot of light, such as transparent soap.
What is Kolortek pearl pigment
Kolortek Pearl pigments consist of thin platelets of the natural mineral mica, which are covered with a thin layer of metal oxides such as titanium dioxide and/or iron oxide.
Various absorption colors (iron oxides, chromium oxides, iron blue, carmine, or organic pigments) can be deposited onto the TiO2 coated mica and thus produce colors from absorption, interference, and transmission/reflection.
