Ingredients: yellow iron oxide
Yellow iron oxide, similar to ultramarines, is a colourant that has been extracted and sieved of dangerous impurities.
This colour adds a sense of happiness and can be used in body care applications or to deepen the tone of other colours in many applications. For instance, colouring eyeshadows, foundations, and even soaps. It has been successful in preserving the shape and colour in cold process or melt-and-pour soaps.
One of its disadvantages though is that it has a tendency to clump and you will need to be extra cautious to de-clump first before adding to your recipe. To de-clump beforehand, use a hand mixer to pre-mix your colourant in with a purified fixed oil, such as olive oil, before adding to your soap. This will help thaw and break up any clusters.
The coloured oil can be added to the soap batter at trace when making cold process soap. For melt and pour soap, the iron oxide must be firstly mixed carefully with glycerine to avoid spattering. Then, simply add it to the melt-and-pour soap.
Add this Yellow Iron Oxide to your bath and body products for a brighter look!
