Iodized salt as thickener

Hello everyone! 
I've run out of pure NaCl and the most a available salt in my country is iodized salt. Can I use it ?

    The amount of iodine (iodide, to be precise) is minuscule and won't disturb as long as you're not using it in an oxidising formula (e.g. containing hydrogen peroxide or benzoyl peroxide).
    Sea salt contains a lot more than just iodide and it's frequently used and works fine in soaps.
