ABSTRACT As a white pigment, titanium oxide is used for cosmetic application. This oxide is well known to have the photo catalytic activity. Therefore a certain degree of sebum is decomposed by the ultraviolet radiation in sunlight. In this work, titanium phosphates were prepared with additives (urea, sodium lactate, and glycerin) as a novel white pigment. Their chemical composition, powder properties, photo catalytic activity, moisture retention, and smoothness were studied. These white pigments had little photo catalytic activity. The addition of sodium lactate and glycerin improved the moisture retention of titanium phosphates. The slipping resistance of samples became small by the addition of sodium lactate and glycerin. The roughness of samples became small by heating.
