Cloisonne® Series – Metallic Look Effect Pigments

Cloisonné effect enhancing pigments impart dramatic color and varied pearlescent effects. They are available in a variety of grades that provide different degrees of luster, ranging from a soft, satiny look to high sparkle. To provide such highly intense color, each Cloisonné pigment contains an absorption colorant deposited on either a mica substrate or an interference pearl base. In grades that use an interference base, the colorant is selected to reinforce the reflection color of the interference pigment. The result is a single dramatic reflection/transmission color.

Chroma-Lite® Series – For Luster and Transparency

Chroma-Lite Colors contain bismuth oxychloride crystals deposited on mica platelets. These high-value composite pigments combine the performance benefits of both materials to give better transparency and less density than bismuth oxychloride alone. The mica substrate improves crystal strength, so less Pearlescence is lost as cosmetic products are processed. They offer an excellent balance of luster, transparency, and color while imparting a silky feel and improving skin adhesion. They are ideal for mineral makeup.

Duocrome Series

Duocrome Iridescent Colors are lustrous pigments that produce a distinctive two-color look, creating striking effects in many cosmetic and personal care products. The interplay between background and highlight colors in Ducrome iridescent colors is truly unique and cannot be duplicated by any combination of interference pigments and conventional colorants. These pigments contain titanium dioxide-coated mica particles that are then coated with a thin layer of colored pigment. Light interference from the titanium dioxide layer produces a reflection color seen as a colored highlight, while the colored pigment imparts a background color by light absorption. When the pigment is used, the colored highlight contrasts with the background color. The Ducrome iridescent colors available provide a range of two-color effects.
