Titanium Dioxide - 1/2 Pound|
Titanium Dioxide Powder
If you've ever wanted to try your hand at making your own sunscreen lotions, then titanium dioxide is a must have. This powder has the ability to filter UVA as well as UVB light - making it a broader protection ingredient over others that are on the market. Use this product in combination with zinc oxide for an even more UVA and UVB screen.
Titanium dioxide is also widely used as a natural whitener in bath products, soap making, face powders, hand lotions, shave creams, etc. No known toxicity - and perfectly safe to use in lip care recipes as well. Adding a bit to your mineral make up recipes will also pass a certain degree of sunscreen into your finished product.
This version is water soluble. For cold process soap add it to the lye phase before incorporating it into your oils - and blend very well (careful not to splash that lye water around). For melt & pour soap making, blend with glycerin then add drop by drop until your soap has reached the white coloring you desire.
This product is NOT micronized, or nano particle.
