This wonderful yellow iron oxide has a gentle earthiness to it that brings a unique vibe to whatever you use it in. 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.

"Best Yellow I have ever purchased! In more than 20 years of making soap this is the absolute BEST yellow oxide I have ever used! Nothing less that perfect, as I always can count on Mad Micas for the best, no matter what I order!"
—SL (verified)

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

Yellow oxide

This color is the perfect yellow. You can add more or less to get the color you need. I use it in my oatmeal soap to get the perfect color.

Perfect Mustard Yellow

Love the natural vibe you get from chromium oxides and the yellow doesn't disappoint! If you're looking for a mustard yellow then look no further! Highly recommend!

Yeller is da bomb

I'm in love with oxides! I used this yellow oxide in a CP soap as a drop swirl as well as a banana soap as a swirl. Such a rich color!

Beautiful and consisent.

Yellow Iron Oxide is one of my go-to's. It's very consistent and I've never seen it fade or morph. It's a strong color that maintains for a long time. I love it.

Beautiful yellow

My great grandmother taught me to make soap when I was 12. She was an herbalist and so am I.
I’ve been buying micas here & there (I’m pretty meticulous about ingredients) but I mostly go back to my roots of using herbs, minerals and clays (and blends) for my colors. I love this yellow and I REALLY love the jar. One of my pet peeves with bags is the transfer - I reach in with my spoon to get color, a little rubs off the inside of the bag on top my glove and 10 seconds later that color has found every surface I didn’t want colored. Because. That’s how I roll apparently. 😂
Yes, this is the first time I’ve used oxide from a jar. :) Thank You Mad Micas!!
