Our Royal Blue Mica is a luxuriant medium-to-deep blue that appears nearly matte in the container, but finishes in product with a high sheen without being glittery. This is a great "go to" blue that won't leave you with a bunch of purple hue. Royal Blue Mica is natural shimmer pigment derived from the mineral Muscovite Mica (potassium aluminum silicate), coated with iron oxide, cosmetic-grade fineness. Insoluble, but miscible in liquids (sinks to bottom in thin liquids). Not recommended for soaping.
