Yellow iron oxide powder to color your cosmetics and other craft projects. It is approved for general cosmetics including skin, eye and lip products. Matte finish, color range from red to pink depending on base and percentage used. Use by itself or blend with other primary colors for your unique products. This powder has been filtered of harmful impurities. Fine particle size range from 0.3 - 1 micron. This product is water & oil soluble; may speckle in melt and pour soap. To lessen the speckling, mix well and do not over use. Color will not change in products with a high pH; not light sensitive and will not migrate or bleed between layers.
You choose size of either 1 ounce weight (28 grams), approximately 5 tablespoons by dry measure or 4 ounce weight. Store at room temperature out of direct sunlight in the original zip lock bag or other air tight container. We have used in cold processed, melt and pour and liquid soaps. A little goes a long way. Used at 1/2% this is enough to color 14 pounds of soap base to mid yellow and much more if seeking a pastel shade. Use of vanilla fragrance oils will potentially change finished product after a few weeks; test all recipes in small batches for desired results.
Additional uses in bath fizzies, mineral makeup and other fun projects. Skin, eye and lip safe.
The product is great. The first time I ordered it, I didn't receive it because it got stolen (I think). However the second time I ordered it, she was kind enough to send it with the signature option with no additional charge! Thaaaaaank you!
