The non-toxic and inert nature of Titanium Dioxide leads to its use as a colourant and opacifier in the food, drug and cosmetic industries. Particle size between 1.0 and 2.0 microns.  Purified grades are used for the following applications.

Pharmaceuticals - Used as a colourant for ointments, capsules, lotions, creams, and various dosage forms.

Cosmetics - Used as a colourant for creams, lotions, powders, eye shadows, lip sticks and other cosmetic preparations

For the safety and convenience of you and your customers, all our oxides and ultramarines are Cosmetic Grade. We pack in clear zip-lock bags for your convenience. Specification sheets and MSDS's are available for all these products.

Which one do I use? Water dispersible or 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.
