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.

Beautiful white

It adds that added sparkle to the white in CP. Titanium dioxide deadens the soap where as this gives it that little extra punch to jazz it up.

I always order this product

It is easier to use this than to use titanium dioxide.

Winter White

Great to have on hand for making lighter colors.

Beautiful White

This makes a beautiful white color. Only 4 stars because you do have to use a lot to get a white color. Not as pigmented as I would like, but knowing that, just use a little more and comes out beautiful.

Winter white mica

A wonderful white mica to use in cp. I find it easier to use than titanium dioxide.

Back for more!

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.
