Titanium Dioxide is a very common mineral used to whiten cosmetics, soaps, toiletries, etc.
All of our Titanium Dioxides are ANATASE
There are two basic types: water dispersible and oil dispersible. As you might guess, the first type blends easily into water and the second into oil.
What makes Titanium Dioxide one type or the other? The difference lies in the amount of salts and minerals in the product. More salt makes the pigment work better in the water phase of a product. Less salt makes it more tolerant of oil phases.
When choosing which to use, here are some things to consider:

Titanium is the basis for all mineral make-up. This is a must have! I love this Titanium, although it is competing with the Methicone Treated Titanium now...But this is a must have if you are going to start making mineral cosmetics...As this is the most used ingredient in formulations. Start with this, and add in your other powders, like kaolin clay, magnesium stearate..etc..and then add in your colors....This is also great for lightening colors that are too dark, but go slow, and add a little at a time, because it has superior whitening power!!!
I love this for the foundation I make! A little goes a long way and it feels good on my skin. It is awesome knowing just where my makeup is from and I've had no allergic reactions to anything!! :)
We have tried many different versions of titanium dioxide.. This oxide that is oil dispersible is the best!! It mixes very well and does not leave white flecks in our soap!! Love this!
