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

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.

Use with water
The first time I used this I'm my CP soap I tried mixing it in oil. I got some clumps that I had to work out but in the end my soap turned out fine. The second time I tried mixing it with water an it made quite a difference. It mixed in easier without clumping and stayed together. It worked well in my CP soap to tone down brighter colors.

Great in CP Soap / Problems in Re-Batch
I love TD in my CP soaps. I have not had any trouble with clumping and my resulting soaps have always turned out gorgeous. However, when I attempted to re-batch a loaf that had TD in it my results were less than stellar. No matter the amount of water/oils I mixed in the soap would not soften up enough to go into a mold. The soap stayed hard and clumped together. I ended up making soap balls. (which turned out lovely) But from now on I will stick to using TD in CP soap only.
