In the process of soap making the oxides and pigments are soap colorants which come in a powdered form. They can offer very extreme color, or they can be used in smaller amounts to offer pastel tones. Pigments and oxides are generally made in a lab now to avoid any chance of bacteria or other compounds from contaminating the mix.
