Soap, Cosmetic and Toiletry Ingredients

  • These bases and concentrates offer a fantastic backbone to any planned toiletries you'd like to make. Free from Parabens and MIT, you can make a ready to go product straight from purchase by just adding a small percentage of fragrance or essential oils to the products without the need for sending to a laboratory for testing.

    Coloured clays and liquid colours can all be used to make your toiletries look beautiful! Fragrances and Essential Oils can be used mostly at a level of around 0.5-2%, but please check each product listing for confirmation.

  • Dried botanicals are a great way to decorate your soaps, given them a great natural finishing touch or to add a luxury feel to your products. Along with adding decoration, our powders can be used to give a natural colour to soaps, and can also give cleansing and softening qualities to whatever they're in. These can be used in all sorts of products, from soaps and bath bombs all the way through to potpourri.

  • With cosmetics, there are a whole range of different colours available that you can use to colours your creations. From mineral pigments all the way up to coated micas for bath bombs, the variety available is perfect for colouring your entire range. Colours include:

    Liquid Dyes: Water-soluble dyes in dilute liquid form. Simple to use in melt & pour soap. Maintain clarity. Can be mixed to achieve a wide selection of colours and shades. Dyes can bleed into adjacent layers.

    Water Soluble Powdered and Granular Dyes: Water soluble powdered dyes for use in many cosmetic applications. Excellent to maintain clarity in transparent soaps. Not all suitable for CP soap. Dyes can bleed into adjacent layers.

    Liquid Dyes: Water-soluble dyes in dilute liquid form. Simple to use in melt & pour soap. Maintain clarity. Can be mixed to achieve a wide selection of colours and shades. Dyes can bleed into adjacent layers.

    Mineral Pigments: Pigments differ from dyes in that they add colour to a substance either by suspension or by 'coating' the structure of the substance. They will opacify a transparent soap base. Pigments will NOT bleed.Suitable for CP Soap. Not usually suitable for liquid products.

    Water Dispersible Pigments: Non-bleed pigments suitable for many cosmetic and toiletry applications. They are versions of those usually only soluble in either oils or alcohol (solvent) but combined with a surfactant to render them dispersible in water, making them suitable for colouring aqueous products and in moderate quantity will maintain transparency in clear bases. Suitable for CP soaps.

    Natural Dyes: Colours (dyes) derived from natural substances suitable for inclusion in many soaps and toiletries. Many are not alkali-tolerant so may not suit cold process soaps. Dyes can bleed into adjacent layers. Micas, Poly-Glitters and Jewels: Micas, Poly-Glitters and Jewels are widely used in make up products. Most mica pigments are also stable in CP soaps.

    Bio Glitter®: Bio-glitter® can be widely used in most cosmetic products. They are made on a cellulose base which is completely biodegradable and as such have huge environmental advantage over standard cosmetic grade poly-glitters.

    Coated Micas: Specially coated mica pigments rendering them ideal for use in products such as Bath Bombs where they give rich, deep colour but will not cling to surfaces or to the skin.

    Solvent Dyes: Powdered dyes suitable for colouring solvents and volatile oils including fragrance oils, essential oils and their diluents, which might include Denatured Ethanol (alcohol), Dowanol, IPM or DPG etc.. Ideal for use in Room Fragrance products such as reed diffusers.
