I'm a bit weird but I rather take precautions. I've been good with scents as far as my skin goes but I've used mostly clays, activated charcoal, and coffee as colorants with no irritation either. Micas is the start of a whole new ball game for me.They should not. Mica is a mineral very similar to talc (talcum powder) but just slightly harder. However it is ground into a powder with the same micron size as talc. Or slightly larger for a glitter. I have only heard of it irritating people who have hyper sensitive skin conditions. Also keep in mind that it will only be in contact with your skin for a very short time before it is washed away. You are more likely to have problems with a oil that you use before the mica would bother you. In nature it can actually rot and become a goopy mess.
