Similar to ultramarines, yellow-orange iron oxides are colours that have been extracted naturally and strained of unwanted impurities. This colour illuminates a feeling of creativity and can be applied to deepen the tone of other colours in many applications like cosmetics. For instance, colouring eyeshadows, foundations, and even soaps.
It has been proven prosperous in stabilising the shape and colour in cold process or met-and-pour soaps. One of its hindrances though is that it has an inclination to clump and you will need to be make sure to de-clump first before adding to your recipe. To de-clump beforehand, use a hand mixer to pre-mix your colour in with an odorless fixed oil, such as sweet almond oil, before adding to your soap. This will help liquefy and melt any clusters.
When making cold process soap, the coloured oil can be added sufficiently to the soap batter. However, for melt-and-pour soap, the colour must be initially mixed carefully with glycerine to prevent splattering. Afterwards, simply mix it with the melt-and-pour soap. Add this yellow-orange iron oxide to your bath and body products to make it look encouraging to use!
