Black Iron Oxide Pigment
Black iron oxide is a fine powdered pigment. Iron oxides are graded safe for cosmetic use and are produced synthetically in order to avoid the inclusion of impurities normally found in naturally occurring iron oxides including ferrous or ferric oxides, arsenic, lead and other poisonous substances.

A little goes a long way. Please start with small amounts and slowly increase to avoid over pigmentation.

- Notes for soap use: when mixing with MP soap, blend in a few drops of glycerin or oil to make a smooth paste to avoid clumps in your soap. White MP base will always create a pastel form of the color due to titanium dioxide in base.

I know everyone has trouble getting black when mixed with white soap base any suggestions on how to make a true black.
I live it! So perfectly dark and once I got the difference betwixt micas and oxides down, 'twas good! Thanks Mad Micas :)
J'ai tellement acheté de mica noir que j'étais désespérée de trouver une marque qui allait me donner le résultat souhaité. Je l'ai enfin. Un beau noir sans être obligé de mélanger 10 couleurs ensemble. Et que dire de l'effet dans l'eau. Mes clients sont ravis!!!
Black Iron Oxide is a bit harder to mix into oil than activated charcoal, but I haven't had any fragrances ooze out of the soap during curing like occasionally happens when I use activated charcoal. It's nice to have this black in my arsenal!
Unlike many people on here I don't make soap. I make oil pastels and one of the colors I make is black. I have had trouble in the past getting black to look black once down on the paper. I have tried many different things and then I decided to give Mad Mica's black oxide a try. I am so happy I did. Not only is my black, black, but the price was so good I bought the large instead of just smaller jars. Thank you Mad Mica for all you do. Your customer service is fantastic and the best thing is you can order small samples before investing a ton of money into a color you don't really like. Unfortunatly the more samples I order the more products I want in full. Your company is great.
