Titanium dioxide is a good way to whiten CP soap. You could use white mica, which itself is probably mineral mica plus titanium dioxide. I haven't tried that so I don't know if the result is any better than using titanium dioxide alone.Just wondering if anyone has ever used white mica to dye olive oil soap? I have used all sorts of colours but never white ( my soaps naturally go a little yellowish) I would love to know if white would lighten them..
I found the same result. The white mica is much more expensive than TD, too, so I was glad I didn't buy a whole bunch of it.I have tested using white mica to lighten up the soap batter but find it takes way too much and doesnt' give the same results as TD. I recommend using TD for a nice white bar of soap. Plus Mica is more expensive with not the same results.
