Titanium Dioxide Oil
Titanium Dioxide is a very common mineral used to whiten cosmetics, soaps, toiletries, etc.
All of our Titanium Dioxides are ANATASE
There are two basic types: water dispersible and oil dispersible. As you might guess, the first type blends easily into water and the second into oil.
What makes Titanium Dioxide one type or the other? The difference lies in the amount of salts and minerals in the product. More salt makes the pigment work better in the water phase of a product. Less salt makes it more tolerant of oil phases.
When choosing which to use, here are some things to consider:
For loose powders, you may prefer oil dispersible (if the skin is not oily) as it will not take water out of the air like water dispersible, and therefore it will keep your product flowing better. If you are formulating for oily skin, however, consider using the water-dispersible type Titanium Dioxide. If you are making products with an oil phase (lotion, salt scrubs), use the oil dispersible. For melt and pour soapmaking we recommend the water dispersible. For Cold process, either type will work.
