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.

Amazing Brown Color!

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

Joseph McGuire
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


It dispersed smoothly and turned out a perfect chocolate brown in my cold process soap.
