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.

"Gorgeous brick red🤩 This is my first time using any colorant other than clays or plant powders in cp soap and I AM HOOKED! Very easy to use, love love love the final colour."
—Arlene (verified)

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

  • Ultramarines and oxides are recommended for use in oil-based applications.
  • 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.

Love it!

I like the iron oxides, they are SUPER consistent. Unless I need a candy apple type red, this is my go to for cold process soap.

Great colour for CP soap

The colour worked amazingly in my CP soap. After 3 weeks of curing there has been no change in the intensity of the colour. Great product.
