What is cosmetic grade Mica powder?

We supply cosmetic grade Mica powder, which is used in makeup. Its group of sheet silicate (phyllosilicate) minerals includes several closely related materials having nearly perfect basal cleavage. All are monoclinic, with a tendency towards pseudohexagonal crystals, and are similar in chemical composition. The nearly perfect cleavage, which is the most prominent characteristic of it, is explained by its atoms’ hexagonal sheet-like arrangement. The word mica is derived from the Latin word mica, meaning a crumb and probably influenced by micare, to glitter.
