Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate description

Isopropyl titanium triisostearate is a synthetic ingredient used as a surface treatment for cosmetic pigments in products such as mascara because of its ability to help form a uniform coating which suspends and helps disperse pigments. Isopropyl titanium triisostearate is also used to coat titanium dioxide nanoparticles to keep them evenly suspended and stable in sunscreen formulations. This results in the improvement of sunscreen’s ability to protect skin from UV light.
