This is one in our family of "True" colors. The "True" micas are all bright, low-sheen micas which have be made so by the blending of FD&C dyes with a mica substrate. The colors have been specially manufactured to be "hydrophobic", which means that they resist water. Mica's are non-toxic occurring naturally from the minerals muscovite and silicate. Mica is smaller than 20 microns, gives a satiny appearance while large micas provide a sparkly effect. Mica's are then coated with various oxides, carmine and titanium dioxide to give a full range of colors. Our True Red Orange Mica Pigment approved for general cosmetic use, including eyes. Not stable in high pH. Pigments are a wonderful way to add color, shine, and sparkle to your eye shadow, lotions, lipstick, creams, and mineral make up. Our micas and oxides are European Cosmetic and FDA approved. Ingredients: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Blue # 1 Lake, Yellow #5 Lake, Palmitic Acid, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene.
