True Red Mica and Pigment Blend Swatch

True Red Blend

100% Vegan, Cruelty Free, and Ethically Sourced Micas

Mad Mica’s True Red Blend is a simple, ready to use blend of mica and pigment that produces a steadfast, true red hue in any clear base. Don’t judge this colorant by the shade of its powder form; when added to a clear base, a vibrant explosion of color will transform your soap into a rich red hue.

Soap Maker’s Note:
We do not recommend True Red Blend in white melt and pour soap base or in recipes containing titanium dioxide. Even though this is a powerful blend of pigment and mica, white bases often contain titanium dioxide, which will turn this true red into a pink. For best results in melt and pour soap, use a clear base.

See our complete list of soap safe fragrance and essential oils.

Note: We do not recommend using mica in candles.

Recommended Usage Rates in Soap:

  • Melt & Pour: ½ tsp per lb. of base
    • Note: a white base will always create a pastel form of the color.
  • Cold/Hot Process: 1½-2 tsp per lb. of oils OR 2½ - 3 g per pound of batter

Soap Maker’s Notes:

  • A white base will always create a pastel form of the color.
  • For large batches, we recommended weighing 0.03-0.05% by weight for Clear base and 0.22%-0.28% by weight for White base.
