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. Our Titanium Dioxide is non-nano. Its exact particle size is 0.17 micron or 170 nanometers. 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.

I ordered the large size this time. Since I read so many recipes suggesting using a coffee bean machine to get the lumps out I tried it. What a difference it makes. Now I don't have to mix as much and no streaking. Also seems I got more product. I put it is a closed Mason Jar and it goes in most of my recipes. Thanks BB
I use it in all of my soaps. I use it to get a true color when using a different color as well as just making white.
I always mix my TD in warmed almond oil, the warmed oil seems to accept the TD better. Plus, I micronize in a Cuisinart electric coffee grinder until it's super fine. I'll micronize enough to store in an empty jar so I always have it ready. I've tried other brands of TD, Brambleberry's is bright white. The best titanium dioxide ever!
I find that I use this a lot because Olive Oil soap isn't very white on it's own. It doesn't take a lot to whiten it up. It is a little hard to mix in, even when mixed in with some oil before adding to the batter, but it does eventually mix in. I have had some glycerine rivers while using this, but then read the article about discounting the water and have less of a problem now.
I Love titanium dioxide. I use it in practically EVERY soap I make, because I love color and the white always make colors pop, as well as softens/lightens up colors and adds an opaque color quality that I'm sometimes looking for. It works very well for me, since I mix it in sunflower or sweet almond oils first (or even a tablespoon of my mixed oils. I add extra in my olive oil recipes (I usually use pomace grade) to make it as bright as possible. Just bought a big bottle!
