Mica comes in many variations from the diverse way that it is formed, for example from volcanoes and hydrothermal vents. It is ground down to form a fine, sparkling powder, which is evident in the glistening flashes of light that we see in rocks such as granite and slate, as well as the various ranges of colours that the mineral can be found in
“Acid”. A bit of a scary word right? But, have no fear! It is a beautiful ingredient which comes from sugar crops, which is not only found in skincare, but also in the fruits we love to eat such as pineapples, papaya, and tomatoes.
