KNOW MORE ABOUT BLACK OXIDE POWDER
BLACK OXIDE POWDER BENEFITS
Aside from its colour, black oxide powder provides excellent protection against harmful UV radiation that even conventional sunscreens may not have. When applied to skincare, they offer a beautiful hue that can make the product more aesthetically attractive and soften the appearance of blemishes on the skin. Black oxide powder also reduces the white cast that many mineral formulae can leave behind.
BLACK OXIDE POWDER APPLICATIONS
Iron Oxides provide cosmetics with a specific colour, and it can range from pink to black. This pigment can be used by itself in bodycare applications or to deepen the tone of other colours in various applications. It can be used for tinting cosmetics such as foundations, blushes, eyeshadows, eye liners as well as to colour soaps. It has been proven to be stable in soaps and will not change shape or colour in cold process or melt and pour soaps. Here are other black oxide powder uses that you might want to create:
- Lashes liner
- Loose powder
- Peel-off Mask
HOW TO USE BLACK OXIDE POWDER?
For melt and pour soap, the black oxide powder pigment should first ideally be mixed thoroughly with glycerine to get rid of speckling and can then simply be added to the melt and pour soap. Also, you should shake all products containing this powder properly to ensure the colour is well-mixed.
One of the drawbacks though is that it tends to clump and you will need to be especially careful to de-clump first before adding to your recipe. To de-clump beforehand, use a hand mixer to pre-mix your pigment in with a deodorised fixed oil, such as sweet almond oil or olive oil, before adding to your soap. This will help disperse and break up any clumps. The coloured oil can then be added to the soap batter at trace when making cold process soap.
