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 1 teaspoon of oxide to 1 tablespoon of a carrier oil like Sweet Almond or Olive Oil and mix well using a mini mixer.  For more information on oxides in soap, check out this blog post.

Safe for use in lip balm and eye shadows 

To create the color in the sample of cold process soap above, we used 3 teaspoons of colorant in 1 pound of soap.

Ingredients:

Note: 7 tsp weighs an ounce?????
Excellent product but I don't understand BB Note: 1 oz. is about 7 teaspoons. I weighed the TD I purchased from BB and 6 tsps.weighed 1/2 oz., THUS 9 tsp equals 3/4 oz, and finally 12 tsp or 4 Tbsp would weigh an oz. Am I misunderstanding something?

Hi Marilyn! We measure all of our products by weight, not volume. Teaspoons are a volume measurement, whereas an ounce is a weight measurement. While, generally speaking 1 ounce works out to be about 6-7 tsp it depends on the density of the product you're talking about. If a powder or liquid is on the denser side 1 ounce, by weight would equal less teaspoons versus a really light product weighed at an ounce would give you more teaspoons. For more information check out our blog post, A Guide to Weight vs. Volume.

Love this. Never have any issues with clumping, I do mix a small amount of oil and TD together first before adding to main bowl. Arrived well packaged, no leaking in shipping box.

Sample color above
I normally use TD for oil only. Never used this but would like to try. My Question is why does the sample shown with the product info appear to be a yellow tan color rather than white. I think most people use it for whitening or toning down. Thanks BB let us know.

Hi Robin! Great question! Titanium Dioxide Pigment is commonly used to whiten soap and lighten other colors. In our sample we used 3 teaspoons of colorant in 1 pound of soap. If you're wanting a whiter color you can use more. Also, our testing recipe we use for samples has a high percentage of Olive Oil in it which affects the color as seen in the Testing 1, 2, 3! blog post. If you're wanting whiter soap I would recommend using a smaller amount of Olive Oil and stick with lighter, whiter oils like Coconut. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Makes my CP Soap Rice
Every time I add this to my Cold Process Soap, it rices or leaves small white dots in my soap. I wasted three batches of soap with this....

Hi Aliena! I'm sorry that you're having troubles using this pigment! Titanium Dioxide Pigment would not cause your soap to rice. It sounds like you may be experiencing clumping. We highly recommend dispersing this pigment in oil first before adding it to your cold process soap. We usually mix 1 teaspoon of colorant into 1 tablespoon of a lightweight liquid 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 CP recipes and it's a very reliable colorant. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
