How Do You Whiten Your CP Soaps?
first off, I'm assuming that "CP soaps" means cold process soaps? If not, then I meant cold process =)
I have made several batchs of CP soaps so far, and although in some applications I like the natural yellowish-brown of the soap crystals that form, but when it comes to coloring the soap (say a light pink) it is impossible to overcome that yellow-brown color! Upon doing some research I found that titanium dioxide is a common and very inert ingredient used to "absorb" color. The only problem I'm running into is, it greatly reduces the moisturizing effects of the ingredients of the soap and tends to dry out my hands in the finished product.
Can anyone help me track down some different ingredients/techniques for how to either remove the natural yellow color, or reduce it substancially without the use of titanium dioxide?
