How do I label a product made with micas?

  • Updated

Labeling requirements will vary depending on the type of product you've created. In general, your labeling should follow the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act. 

For cosmetics like soap and lotions, our micas will be included in the portion of the ingredient list along with colorants and additives. According to the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, ingredients are required to be labeled in order of greatest to least, with color additives listed at the end.

For example, Interstellar Mica contains mica, titanium dioxide, fluorphlogopite, tin dioxide, and iron oxide. 

If we were to create a soap made from Stephenson Goat's Milk Melt and Pour Soap Base and Interstellar Mica, our ingredient list on the label would be:

Aqua, Glycerin, Sodium Stearate, Sorbitol, Sodium Laurate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Goat's Milk, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Citric Acid, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Citrate, Tetrasodium Iminodisuccinate, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Fluorphlogopite, Tin Dioxide, and Iron Oxide.

This information is intended as a starting point when creating your own labels. When creating your labels, ensure that you also take into account any state or local guidelines. The Fair Packaging and Labeling Act applies to products sold in the United States. If you are located outside of the US, determine if your country offers its own guidance for product packaging and ingredient lists.
