Pigments > Opacifying Products

Opacifiers are additives that impart a rich, creamy, luxurious feel and appearance to cosmetic formulations like body washes and shampoos. They prevent light transmission and provide ideal brightness and whiteness to the end product. They have excellent formulation compatibility and stability. Opacifiers can be latex copolymers, pearl shine waxes, and dyes and pigments such as mica and Titanium dioxide (TiO2).
