You can also create your own mica colours by adding pigments to the sericite mica. Grind and you have your own personal coloured mica ready for use.
Micas are non-toxic occurring naturally from the minerals muscovite and silicate. Mica if smaller than 20 microns, gives a satiny appearance while large micas provide a sparkly effect. Micas are then coated with various oxides, carmine and titanium dioxide to give a full range of colours. Our micas are a wonderful way to add colour, shine, and sparkle to your soaps, shampoos, lotions, creams, and mineral makeup.
Statement: We have received enquiries from some customers who are quite rightly concerned about child labour practices relating to the mining of mica in India. We never have and nor do we now source or stock any products at all from India. You can rest assured that any product you may purchase in this store has not been the subject of child labour or animal testing.
This natural mica sold by the Aroma Shoppe is sourced in the USA using fully ethical, traceable, and environmentally friendly processes.
