    Quelle utilisation pour les micas naturels ?

    Nous déconseillons l'utilisation des micas dans les bougies. En effet, le mica est une poudre colorante qui risque de saturer la mèche et d'empêcher son bon fonctionnement.

    Cependant, ils sont principalement appréciés pour colorer les fondants parfumés, les cosmétiques maison et les savons.


    Quelles sont les différences entre des pigments et colorants?

    Les pigments permettent de colorer l'extérieur d'une bougie moulée, un peu comme un vernis.
    Les colorants permettent de teinter entièrement la cire de la bougie, c'est un colorant soluble pour les cires végétales et minérales.
