Titanium dioxide

Chemical Formula: TiO2



White powder.


Titanium dioxide is a very white powder that makes a very opaque paste when mixed with water or oils.

It is used as a sunblock, and in toothpastes and cosmetics as a colorant.

Titanium dioxide is used in many of the same products as zinc oxide.
