Winter White is a very fine mica that is brilliantly white. A true bright white that reminds us of freshly fallen snow. Simply gorgeous!
This can be used as an alternative to Titanium Dioxide for those who do not like working with it. It will not achieve the same bright white as TD does, but it will make your soap slightly more matte and white in color. In melt and pour the effect will be much more white, which makes Winter White an ideal replacement for TD in melt and pour bases.
Recommended use rate in cold and hot process soap is 1 tsp. per pound of oils. For melt and pour, the recommended use rate is .5 tsp. per pound of base. To use in bath bombs polysorbate 80 must be used. Use polysorbate at half your oils. For example, if you use three teaspoons of carrier oils, now use 3 tsp of oils and 1.5 tsp. of poly 80. If your bath bombs are too wet, decrease the amount of poly and carriers oil by the same ratio. The addition of polysorbate will prevent staining or a mica powder ring around the tub.
