Description 

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

My secret mix
After about a year of mixing titanium dioxide with my base oils and still getting lumps no matter how well I would mix. By accident I used distilled water, WOW, never another white speck in my CP soap. If any one has had this problem please try this. I have been reading these reviews of frustration. Use the water....No Lumps NO Bumps. Also if you are still having problems ...( I saw this on youtube) I will mix with water and warm up in microwave for 10 sec makes for beautiful white CP soap.

Nice enough for tinting.
The only issue I had even though I mixed it with a bit of oil was it was grainy and did not dissolve as well as I would have liked.

Hi Sherry! To ensure that the Titanium Dioxide blends smoothly into the soap batter, we recommend micronizing it before dispersing it in oil. To micronize colorant, simply use a coffee grinder to blend the colorant to break up any clumps of color and prevent streaks of white from showing in the final soap. We like to use a coffee grinder that has a removable, stainless steel mixing area for easy cleaning. Then, disperse 1 teaspoon of the colorant into 1 tablespoon of Sunflower or Sweet Almond Oil (or any other liquid oil).

Disolving Titanium Dioxide tip
To Rosalind and Stephanie....In response to your usage of TD, I experienced the same, however there's a solution to everything, I sifted the TD as you will with flour and powdered sugar, then I mixed it the sunflower oil and sifted it again to reassure no granulars substances effect, and this took care of my frustration and my soaps came out beautiful without white streaky lines. CP soaps remind me of baking, so I incorporated the same techniques into my soaps. I hope this help both of you and don't get discourage if it doesn't work the first time, there's always a solution, a scientist at my job told me that it was impossible to disolve TD, I didn't take no for an answer. Like with any powder humidity gets into product inevitably so sifting help loosen up the particles as it does w flour and powdered sugar. Happy soaping!

Its doing something weird to my soap
I used this in two batches of soap, the first time I mixed with water and the second time I mixed with the oil. Both times my soap came out with wiggly lines through out, as though it separated from the oil. I don't know what's causing this, but I'm a little afraid to try using it again. Am I going to have to give up trying to get my white soap? I must admit, as it is drying they seem to be disappearing a bit. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?

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.
