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.
