Ever hear of white rouge?

Hi all,

I have a source for white rouge, and was wondering if anybody knows about its properties as a polishing compound compared to red rouge or cerium oxide.

Tim --

White rouge is coarser than red rouge.

Some manufacturers use cerium oxide to make red rouge, others use iron oxide. In general, there's a great degree of variability in all these names.
