Advances in Natural Colorants

SpecialChem / Nick Morante – Jun 3, 2009

We have, over the course of the past couple of years, read about many natural colorants that can be used in cosmetics and personal care products. Many have been around for a very long time and are quite common and familiar to us all. Annatto, beta-Carotene, Carmine, Chlorophyll and a few others have been talked about so many times. But when it comes to natural colorants this small list is all that the United States Government currently allows for use as color additives in cosmetics and beauty products.But with the industry moving more towards all natural products, this current list is certainly inefficient to produce the wide range of colors that are required for the color cosmetic market segment. So what can be done to create all natural color cosmetics with so few colors permitted for use? This problem does not exist in other markets as other markets allow many more natural colorants with a very wide range in hue for their color cosmetics.I have seen some of these colorants and it is amazing what they look like...
