Iron oxides are cosmetic pigments that originate from natural minerals and are considered both synthetic and mineral when refined. Used to tint sunscreens, create complexion-enhancing makeup shades, and help protect skin from visible light. Iron oxides are considered to be safe as used in cosmetics and personal care products because they are non-toxic and non-allergenic. Iron oxides are well tolerated by those with sensitive skin.
The primary purpose iron oxides serve is purely functional since they play an integral role in the formulation process. However, there's also a secondary, more skincare-focused benefit that makes them one of those 'get extra bang for your buck' ingredients worth seeking out.
Iron oxides are most often used to add pigment to cosmetics and skincare, but they also have the added benefit of protecting the skin from visible and blue light
