These colorants are very potent! We primarily use for our soap production & need very little for beautiful color. We use as little as 1/16 tsp to 1/4 tsp per 2.5 pounds; 0.03%-0.09%. Each sample pack is 1 tsp so you will be able to make quite a bit with the sample set. If your soap produces colored bubbles, you've used too much.

All of the powders mix best when blended with an equal portion of carrier oil or glycerin to make a thin paste, then add to a small amount of your batch & finally mix throughout the batch. We have learned this through trial and error and glad to share this technique with you so you are satisfied with your first encounter of using these natural colorants. Recommended for use in cold or hot processed and melt and pour bases. Your base and essential or fragrance oils will impact the end result color. These colors are non-fading and will not migrate in your finished soaps.

This is shipped in individual plastic zip lock bags. Store at room temperature in the original bag or any air tight container. We buy in bulk for best pricing & keep our supplies fresh.

The mineral market is like the precious metals market with fluctuations in price. We adjust our prices every few months to keep up with changes so reorders may be at a different price from the last time you purchased.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: Can I use these for other applications?
A: If you are seeking mineral oxides /pigments, that's what these are. There is no difference in grade from one oxide to another other than grain & purity. These are the smallest micron & purest quality since they are cosmetic grade. I cannot provide additional details for use in crafting outside of cosmetic applications.

Q: Is there a difference between handmade and commercial oxides?
A: All oxides are commercial, beware of claims to be handmade. Oxides are minerals that are mined and processed for purity or lab made of natural components. Colors can be hand blended, but never handmade.

Q: Are these nano or non-nano?
A: Non-nano is a trendy buzz advertising word. A nanometer is simply a unit of measure most commonly used in nanotechnology and biometrics; 1 micron =1,000 nanometers. The FDA regulates cosmetic standards and suppliers MSDS information conforms with current standards of particle size measured in microns not nanometers. As previously stated the particle size of these oxides range from 0.3-1 micron conforming with FDA standards for use in cosmetic products with a classification of fine particle size.
