Methicone Treated Titanium Dioxide (MTTD)
Titanium Dioxide is a standard whitening powder used in cosmetics. When it is surface treated with methicone, the result is a powder which has a high water repellancy.
As a result our MTTD stays loose and free-flowing in loose powder formulations (over time, plain old TD can absorb water from the air and become a little clumpy). It is also more water repellent than regular TD, making it a good choice for "active wear" cosmetics.
If you compareMTTDto our Oil Dispersible Titanium Dioxide (its closest cousin), you will discover that it has a better slip (lessdrag) on the skin. Additionally, ithas improved adhesion.
MTTD has improved "payout",and the result is a better even-toned coverage.
All of our Titanium Dioxides are ANATASE
