Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • Would you say this is natural?

    Many people would say that it is.  It is an iron oxide, which is an element found naturally all over the planet.  

    Having said that, the FDA, which is the government arm that regulates color additives for cosmetics in the USA, requires that iron oxides used in cosmetics be synthetically prepared.  Thus, this is not iron oxide "dug from the ground", this is iron oxide which is manufacturered by oxidizing iron and processing it very carefully to meet the criteria for heavy metals and purity.   

    Rather than calling it a Natural Iron Oxide, I would call it a Cosmetic-Grade Iron Oxide, which is a different level of purity than, say, an iron oxide one might use in paint, which may be closer to being called "natural".

    Hopefully, you find this nuanced information interesting and helpful.
