Winter White mica is a bright white color that works wonderfully in soaps. It is often used as in place of titanium dioxide to whiten soaps. Winter White will not leave specks or streaks as TD sometimes can, making it an ideal alternative.

INCI: Fluorphlogopite, titanium dioxide
Micron Size: <15

Cosmetic use:
• Eyes
• Lips
• Bath Bombs
• External Use

Ideal for:
• Soap
• Resin
• Crafts
• Lotion
• Butters
• Wax Melts
• Nail Polish

Prop 65: Titanium dioxide (airborne, unbound particles of respirable size) is on the Proposition 65 list because it can cause cancer. Exposure to titanium dioxide may increase the risk of cancer. Once incorporated into a liquid or solid base it is no longer airborne and falls off the Prop 65 list.

• Use rate in cold & hot process soaps: 1-2 teaspoons per pound of oils.
• Use rate in melt & pour soaps: .5 teaspoons per pound of oils.

~ More or less can be added to achieve your desired color. ~

This can be used as an alternative to Titanium Dioxide. The samples shown in our pictures are typical use rates of 1 tsp. per pound which is not enough to significantly whiten soap.

To use as an alternative to titanium dioxide, Winter White mica should be used at 3 tsp. per pound of oils. This will result in a much brighter white and there is no speckling as titanium dioxide can sometimes do.

I think this is a great alternative to TD. It's still TD but easier to mix and incorporate. I will still use both depending on the project I'm working on but I love that I have the option to choose based on the recipe I'm using!

I like it…

It’s okay. I don’t love it. It’s much easier to mix that just straight titanium dioxide, but still leaves streaks and rivers. That could be me not mixing enough though. I do think many people are confused..this is still titanium dioxide, it’s just mixed with fluorphlogopite, so it’s not really an alternative to avoid TD. I just hope people realize that when they’re typing up their ingredients for labels.


a true white

Life saver

Easier than just TD, I use this mica over TD any day. Love it!

Great substitute for TD

I'm trying to get away from titanium dioxide and this is a great substitution.
