Key Market Insights

Cosmetic colorants are widely used for make-up, skin care, hair care, personal hygiene, and fragrance. The pigments are insoluble colorants, which remain in the form of solid particles or crystals while using. Pigments are mainly divided into organic and inorganic pigments. Organic pigments are made of carbons and other molecules such as lakes, toners, and true pigments. Also, organic pigment colors are brighter than inorganic pigments. Inorganic pigments that are popular among consumers include ultramarine, chromium, iron oxides, etc. White pigments such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are used in almost all cosmetics. Inorganic pigments are more opaque and resistant to solvents. Generally, pigments are used to achieve a perfect color shade in the products.
