Titanium Dioxide Dispersion
Titanium Dioxide (C.I. 77891), also known as Pigment White 6, is a widely used white pigment in various cosmetic and soap formulations. It is valued for its ability to provide opacity, brightness, and whiteness to products.
Here’s more relevant information about Titanium dioxide in the context of cosmetics and soaps; This is a pumpable, flowable, aqueous highly concentrated dispersion ideal for CP Soap coloration. Specifically for home care wash-off application.
- Function in Cosmetics and Soaps:
- Opacity and Whiteness: TiO2 is used to impart a white color to cosmetics and soaps, making them visually appealing.
- Sunscreen Protection: TiO2 is also used as a physical sunscreen agent due to its ability to reflect and scatter UV radiation, providing protection against harmful sun rays.
- UV Absorption: In addition to reflecting UV radiation, titanium dioxide can also absorb some UV rays, making it an effective ingredient in sunscreens.
- Particle Size and Dispersion:
- Particle Size: The particle size of titanium dioxide can influence its performance in cosmetics and soaps. Smaller particles tend to provide better coverage and smoother texture.
- Dispersion: Proper dispersion of TiO2 in the formulation is important to achieve consistent color and coverage in the final product.
- Regulations and Safety:
- Regulatory Approval: TiO2 is considered safe for use in cosmetics and personal care products when used within certain limits and formulations.
- Nanoparticles: Nanoscale TiO2 particles are sometimes used in cosmetics. Regulations and guidelines regarding their safe use vary by region. This version does not contain nano particles
- Soap Making:
- Titanium dioxide can be added to soap formulations to create white or pastel-colored soap bars.
- Whilst it is important to properly disperse TiO2 in the soap mixture to avoid clumps or streaks of colour, we have done the work for you with this high concentration dispersion
- Labeling and INCI Name:
- On ingredient lists, titanium dioxide may be listed as “Titanium Dioxide,” “CI 77891,” or “Pigment White 6.”
- The International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) name for titanium dioxide is “Titanium Dioxide.”
- Environmental Considerations:
- this dispersion is NOT FOR USE IN SUNSCREEN. The production and use of TiO2 dispersions being milled to nanoparticles have raised some environmental concerns. Researchers and industry are exploring sustainable and eco-friendly alternatives.
Remember that while TiO2 is generally safe for use in cosmetics and soaps, individual sensitivities can vary. Always check product labels for any potential allergens or warnings before use. Additionally, regulations and guidelines can evolve, so it’s essential to stay updated on the latest information from regulatory agencies in your region.
