For the safety and convenience of you and your customers, all of our oxides are Cosmetic Grade.

Iron Oxides are also natural colourants, similar to micas, however; when found in nature they often contain traces of toxic metals like mercury, antimony, lead and arsenic. Before certification for use in cosmetics however, the oxides are processed and refined so that they are safe for use on skin and are no longer considered to be in their natural state. The levels of metals found in oxides are heavily regulated and closely monitored before they are approved for sale for cosmetic use.

Oxides are the strongest pigments available. They are available in a variety of colors and most are weather resistant and non-bleeding.

Oxides can be used in lip products, face makeup, and eye makeup. Ultramarines and oxides can be blended together to give a wide range of colours. For soap making oxides can be added after the lye and fats are blended, use at about 1 teaspoon per 2.27 kg (5 lb) soap. Iron oxides are inorganic and will not bleed. Not recommended for nail lacquers.
