Micronized Titanium Dioxide
Our Micronized TD is 15 nanometers in particle size.
Micronized TD is popular because it is more translucent than regular TD, yet it still has good adhesion and it offers excellent UV protection.
Oil dispersible. Stearic acid in Micronized TD is coconut derived.
About The Micron Size:
A micron is 1 millionth of a meter, and a nanometer is 1 billionth of a meter.This dot: "." is approximately 1/64th of an inch and equals 615 microns.
