Black iron oxide is a fine powdered pigment and is black in color. Iron oxides are graded safe for cosmetic use and are produced synthetically in order to avoid the inclusion of ferrous or ferric oxides, and impurities normally found in naturally occurring iron oxides, such as arsenic, lead and other poisonous substances.
A little goes a long way. Please start with small amounts and add from there to avoid over pigmentation.

Ultramarines and Oxides (pigments) are recommended in oil-based applications.
M&P Soap: We recommend a usage rate of about 1/10 - 1/8 teaspoon per pound of M&P soap. When mixing with M&P soap, blend in a few drops of glycerin or oil to make a smooth paste to avoid clumps in your soap. Pigments will appear bold and true to color in clear M&P soaps and will be somewhat muted (pastel-like) in white M&P due to the titanium dioxide whitener.
CP Soap: Usage rates vary but typical suggested usage in CP soap is 1/2 - 1 teaspoon per pound of soap. Over saturation will result in colored lather and will leave colored suds on fabric and may stain. Pigments are best for swirling as the colors do not “bleed” into one another and do not “migrate” or spread.
Non-Bleeding, Non-Migrating. Stable in high pH
Bath Bomb Notes
Not recommended for use in bath bombs.
This was my first time using the black oxide and it the soap turned out great! Mixed in well with no issues.
I was trying to use up some clear melt and pour and decided to make black cat soaps. This one gave me a nice opaque black with no fading and without needing to use a large amount.
I love this product. I can achieve the perfect shade of black instead of gray. I make cold process soap and getting a truly black soap is not easy. Thank You Mad Micas for this possible.
Oh my goodness! This is the perfect black in CP soap! Much more black than actv. charcoal. Very pleased! Will be returning for more!
