HOW TO USE IT

These can be used for liquid soap but, as with all powdered pigments, the colour will sink to the bottom if the consistency is not thick enough. It won’t however, stick to bath surfaces.
 
To use in liquid products or creams, add the pearlescent colour to 1-2 tbsps of Glycerine and mix well to form a paste; then add the paste to the ready-made liquid product.
When used in solid soaps they produce a lovely, semi-transparent effect. To use in solid soaps, use the same method but add the paste while the soap is still liquid.
 
To use in mineral makeup, simply blend with other powders such as titanium dioxide, zinc, rice starch & chalk powder.
