Yellow Oxide pigment powder is used to colour a wide range of bath and body care products, and makeup products. Oxides are naturally-occurring minerals in the Earth. They are also manufactured in the lab. Colourants add more fun to a formulation.
Unlike natural colourants, Oxide Pigments/ colourants bar soaps coloured with oxide colourants do not experience colour-fading over time. Also, a little Oxide Colourant goes a long way – a small quantity of oxide powder is all you need (see the recommended usage rates below).

- How much Yellow Oxide powder colourant is enough to use? Use 1 teaspoon oxide powder for every 500 grams of soap batter
- For Cold Process Soap Making: Mix/ disperse 1 teaspoon of Yellow Oxide colourant powder with 1 tablespoon of lightweight oil, to colour 500 grams of soap batter. Then, add 1 teaspoon of dispersed pigment at a time, at trace, to the soap batter. Stir well and add some more as needed or until you get your desired colour depth.
- For Melt and Pour soap making: Mix 1 teaspoon of yellow Oxide powder with 1 tablespoon of Glycerin or 99 percent Isopropyl Alcohol (aka Rubbing alcohol). Next, add one-quarter teaspoon of dispersed pigment at a time to the melted soap. Stir well and add more as needed or until you get your desired colour depth.
- When to Add the Colour: For cold process soaps, ad the pre-mixed colourant at trace.
- Can you add more colourant? Yes, you can, BUT be careful, as too much may cause the soap to bleed colour during use/washing. It is recommended to do small test-batches before doing a big batch.
- Note that results of final colour will vary according to the colour of your base oils. Formulations or soaps with colourless base oils will give a final colour close to or same as the colourant you used.
