Soap Colorants: Mica
Micas can be tricky. Not all of them remain stable through saponification and some of them bleed. Also, they seem to come and go. The best mica I've ever used for soap, POP mica, has been discontinued from the manufacturer. Reds and greens seem to change constantly from batch to batch. Here are a few micas that worked out nicely.
This soap is made with neon blue, neon green and neon yellow,
For a softer shade this is pearl pink,
This is a swirl with neon pink used with a fragrance that turns the soap dark brown,
This one is neon yellow and tangerine POP,
