I'm seeing a lot of Titanium Dioxide listed on Ebay for coloring ceramics. I wonder if this is the same Titanium Dioxide that is used for soaping? Is all Titanium Dioxide the same or is this a different grade that is not suitable for soaps?

The price is amazingly cheap.

Soooo, I'm guessing that nobody knew? :)

But, yes, it's the same grade and everything.

Titanium Dioxide is a common pigment. Yes, that's more than likely the same stuff. We don't make enough soap to casue people who make pigments to make them especially for us, so we borrow from other areas.
