Brown iron oxide is a deep, rich brown 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.

"I am in LOVE with this brown oxide! It's so rich and amazing in my soaps. LOVE LOVE IT!"
—Robert M. (verified)

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.

Brown Iron Oxide

I enjoyed working with this Mica for my massage soap bar. It made my bar look edible, like a white chocolate and milk chocolate candy bar. The color blended very well with my soap base, and I didn't have to use a lot. Thank you.

Amazing Brown Color!

I used this for my coffee and tree log soap and they turned out great! 10/10 would recommend!

Great brown

I like working with the darker brown makers because I can put in a little less to get a lighter brown making it far more practical
