Their customer service is fantastic. I order cosmetic grade mica often and I can’t say the same thing for other suppliers. BTW- various suppliers rename colors instead of sticking with the manufacter name so if you order from more than one site you might end up with duplicates unintentionally.
TKB labels each mica with the ingredients (mica is a clear sort of redish mineral, the colors come from additives) and you can see the information before you order. Below is an example (antique copper) of the info listed.
