White Mica

by Kat Kali March 30, 2017

Mica - Mica minerals come in a variety of naturally occurring colors. In addition to soap and cosmetics, mica minerals are used in a wide variety of applications including electronic equipment. Once the mica mineral is mined, it’s coated with FD&C colorants, pigments or a combination of both to achieve different colors.

Ingredients: Mica Titanium Dioxide 

Are micas considered natural? It’s important to remember that the term “natural” is not regulated* and means something different to everybody (click here to read more about the term “natural”). The majority of micas contain only mica and iron oxides, which both readily occur in nature and can be considered natural. If the mica is colored with FD&C colorants, the mica is not considered natural.

* 4/14/16 UPDATE: While there are still no guidelines or a legal definition that constitutes a “natural” product, the Federal Trade Commission (which enforces truth-in-advertising laws) charged five companies for falsely promoting their products as being “all natural” or “100% natural” when the product contained synthetic ingredients.
