Cosmetic Brown Oxide - Extra Fine, Special Blend

This colourant was ordered in as a special order and not collected.  The drum has been packed down into small packets for retail customers at a wholesale price.  It is a much lighter colour than our regular brown oxide as it is a blend of iron oxides.  Colour-wise it sits between Red/Orange or Burnt Sienna Oxide and Brown Oxide. 

Approved for use in cosmetic applications, this colour is used in mineral make up as well as soaps.

Brown Oxide is also useful if you are wanting to solidify the tone of vanilla discolouration and ensure it comes through an even brown.

All Surplus Brown Oxide stock is packed in pouches.
