100% Vegan, Cruelty Free, and Ethically Sourced Micas
Peer into the metallic splendor of Supernova Mica, inspired by the stunning images captured by the James Webb Space Telescope. A shining copper with gold flecks, Supernova adds an out-of-this-world flair to soaps, wax melts, bath bombs, and more. Clear bases show off Supernova with a liquid metal appearance, while white bases feature a more subtle copper with flecks of gold throughout.
Note: We do not recommend using mica in candles.

Melt & Pour: ½ tsp per lb. of base

Soap Maker’s Notes:
