Titanium Dioxide: "Angel White" natural pigment that is both oil and water soluble.When used in Cold Process add to your base oils and mix well prior to adding the lye water solution. Also perfect for lip stick and mineral makeup. While this is a non-bleeding colorant, if you add too much to your soap it can migrate into other colors in the soap design or stain washcloths. We recommend starting out at 1/16th to 1/8th teaspoon per pound for melt & pour soaps. For cold process, add ½ teaspoon of oxide to 1 ounce of a carrier oil like Sweet Almond or Olive Oil and mix well using a mini mixer – add 1 teaspoon of this mixture to your batch. For more information on oxides in soap, check out this blog post.
INCI: Titanium Dioxide
Note: 1 oz. is about 7 teaspoons

If you're using titanium dioxide in cold process soap, we highly recommend dispersing it in oil first. We usually mix 1 teaspoon of colorant into 1 tablespoon or Sweet Almond or Sunflower oil. You can use a mini mixer to really make sure it's mixed in! This will ensure that the colorant also disperses evenly in your soap as well. We use titanium dioxide in many of our cold process recipes, and it's a very reliable colorant.
