Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate is a synthetic compound derived from fatty acid. When Iron Oxides are surface treated with Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, they display strong color development properties with increased adhesion to the skin. TPT is very reactive to almost all pigments and forms a uniform coating of lipophilic isostearate groups. There are abundant fatty ester groups on the treated surface; therefore, the titanate treated pigments can be easily wetted by and dispersed in organic vehicles, like esters, mineral oils or petrolatum. Oil absorption is substantially reduced, allowing the loading of pigments in the formula to be increased. TPT treated pigments are suitable for liquid foundations, lipsticks, blushes, eye shadows, and sunscreens.

General Information

Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate is a synthetic compound derived from fatty acid. When
Iron Oxides are surface treated with Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, they display
strong color development properties with increased adhesion to the skin. TPT is very
reactive to almost all pigments and forms a uniform coating of lipophilic isostearate
groups. There are abundant fatty ester groups on the treated surface; therefore, the
titanate treated pigments can be easily wetted by and dispersed in organic vehicles, like
esters, mineral oils or petrolatum. Oil absorption is substantially reduced, allowing the
loading of pigments in the formula to be increased. TPT treated pigments are suitable
for liquid foundations, lipsticks, blushes, eye shadows, and sunscreens.
