Titanium Dioxide -- WATER DISPERSIBLE

# KS-203
Titanium Dioxide -- WATER DISPERSIBLE

Our basic, cosmetic-grade water soluable white for use in all kinds of soapmaking, cosmetics and craft projects.

The particle size of this Titanium Dioxide ranges from 1.0 to 1.7 microns, however the average particle size is about 1.5 microns.

Titanium Dioxide is a very common mineral used to whiten cosmetics, soaps, toiletries, etc.

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:

  • For loose powders, you may prefer oil dispersible (if the skin is not oily) as it will not take water out of the air like water dispersible, and therefore it will keep your product flowing better.
  • If you are formulating for oily skin, however, consider using the water-dispersible type Titanium Dioxide.
  • If you are making products with an oil phase (lotion, salt scrubs), use the oil dispersible.
  • For melt and pour soapmaking we recommend the water dispersible. For Cold process, either type will work.

By irene
Is this powder better for dry skin? TKB Responds: Our "go to" makeup artists recommeds half Oil and half Water dispersible titanium dioxide for face powders. Oil will absorb the oil in the skin, and water can absorb the water. A blend of the two makes a nice balance.

Can this be use to make a white eyeshadow? White white? TKB Responds: Yes, but maybe add some silica microspheres to it to make it less "draggy".

By Melanie
Can this be used in a suspension base for nail polish ? TKB Responds: we recommend instead the Methicone Surface Treated Titanium Dioxide (MTTD) that we sell.
