Iron oxides are inorganic pigments that are available in three basic shades - black, red and yellow. As they do not contain mica, oxides have a less vibrant colour with a matte appearance. Iron oxides can be blended together to create browns, tans and even flesh tones if done correctly.
Iron oxides colours are popular for soap making, bath bombs, make-up and other decorative applications. Although iron oxides occur naturally, only synthetic iron oxides may be used in makeup and personal care applications.
