Hi all!

I was wondering if you could help me out. I have been using brown mica powder for bath bombs and I recently noticed that my bath bombs are letting out brown & huge black rings that cling to the side of the tub rather than the usual brown. The only thing that has changed is the addition of coconut oil. Is this a normal reaction between micas and oils? I put poly80 in to see if that would help but still no success of getting rid of the black that hugs the side of my tub? I know it is normal to have some rings but I had to get into the tub and scrub vigorously to get them off even though I start with a clean base.
