Cosmetic Grade Micas | Saffire Blue Inc.

Cosmetic Grade Micas

The term Mica is the name for a group of natural occurring minerals. Although Micas are found in nature, the Mica powders that are certified for cosmetic use are crushed purified or refined to make them safe for use on skin.
The addition of Titanium Dioxide as well as Iron Oxides and Ultramarines are what gives us the multitude of colours and shades of Micas. The also can have a varying degrees of light reflecting properties. Micas can be completely matte, opalescent/shimmery or sparkling; those with shimmer effects are also called glitters.
Micas can be used in lipsticks, lip balms, rouges, foundations, eye shadows, eyeliners and mascaras. Please note however, that you need to make sure that the mica you are using in your cosmetic is safe for eye and lip application.
They can also be used to colour soaps and candles as well as paint and resin.
Please note that actual mica colours may be slightly different from the colours in the product image depending on your monitor display settings.
Our micas are packaged in zip-top bags.  For your convenience, you may wish to order a jar to store your mica.  Click here to browse our large selection of jars.
