What use for natural micas ?

Natural mica powder for colouring your creations or cosmetics

Micas are mainly suitable for colouring scented fondants, home cosmetics and of course soaps.

However, we do not recommend the use of micas in candles. Indeed, mica is a colouring powder which risks saturating the wick and preventing its proper functioning.


What are the differences between pigments and dyes?

Dyes & pigments for your candle creations

Pigments are used to colour the outside of a moulded candle, much like a varnish.
The dyes in grains/flakes allow to tint the wax of the candle completely, it is a soluble dye for vegetable and mineral waxes.


Why use liquid dyes in my candles?

Liquid dyes for easy mixing with mineral or vegetable waxes

Liquid candle dyes can also be used with mineral or vegetable waxes.
The dosage is more precise and the colours can be mixed together very easily.
