Details Ingredients & Additional Information COA (Certificate of Analysis)

Annatto Seed (Bixa orellana) has been used for centuries by indigenous tribes and can be traced as far back as the ancient Mayans.
Aannatto seed is a natural emollient, and produces an extremely rich, creamy lather when used in handmade soap. The seeds are coated with a paste like oil containing Bixin pigment. The seeds can be heated/soaked in oil to remove the Bixin and then the oil is used to make and/or color soap, lip balms, bath salts, bath balms and other skincare products.

Annatto seeds can be used to create a deep, orange colored oil. This infused oil can then be used to tint skin care products naturally. Use 1 tablespoon of annatto seeds per cup of oil to get a dark orange oil. Olive oil is a good oil to use, but any vegetable oil will work. Heat the seeds and oil gently over a double boiler until the oil turns a deep orange color. Strain out the seeds, and use the oil as needed in creams, lotions, soaps, bath salts, bath bombs and lip balms.
