Iron Oxide pigments are non-toxic minerals which occur naturally, comprising iron and oxygen. These pigments are mined from the earth, processed and filtered to ensure purity and reduce the level of heavy metal contents.
Iron Oxides produce shades of red, orange, brown and black. Chromium Oxide produces shades of green and teal. These pigments are approved for use in general cosmetic as they are essential in formulation of mineral makeup such as eyeshadows, eyeliners, lip colours and more. Our range of Iron Oxide colours can be used alone or added to mica pigments to deepen the shade as needed.
In soap making, the recommendation is to do small test batches as some of the Iron Oxide colours are unstable in cold process soap.
