COLOURANTS AND COLOUR PIGMENTS
Natural colourants do not produce the same vivid, vibrant hues as commercial soaps. (Keep in mind that the majority of those are artificially coloured.) Instead, you get the natural gentle to deep muted tones. While some natural colourants merely provide colour, others provide additional benefits such as exfoliation, antioxidants, or other health benefits. Still here at N-Essentials, we have fluorescent colour pigments to help give that bright, vibrant look if you so wish it!
Colourants are storming today’s market and are extensively available in different options whether you are planning to add colours to your bath bombs, paintings, clothes, photographs, and many others. Colourants have been in use for decades for countless reasons. At present, they are massively used in the cosmetic and personal care industry with the apparent purpose of adding distinctive shades to any skin care and body care product.
As it is known, colourants can either be dyes or pigments. Dyes are water-soluble substances that impart or transfer colours from a solution in water. On the other hand, pigments are water-insoluble substances that are applied not as solutions but mixed with a liquid. They provide colour, shine, and opacity and are mainly used in paints, ink, cosmetic products, and many others.
Our colourants are composed of pigments, including activated charcoal, fluorescent pigments, iron oxides, mica pigments and pearlescent pigments.
Inorganic pigments like our iron oxides are highly-refined pigments that have been neutralised for cosmetic use. They come in various colours so that you can use them in different cosmetic formulations.
As opposed to inorganic pigments, organic pigments are more intense in colour. An example of this is our mica pearlescent pigments that are an excellent substitute for makeup colours, eyeshadows, blushes and creams. You can also use it in making homemade liquid soaps, cold process soaps, and bath bombs.
NOT ALL ORGANIC PIGMENTS ARE SUITABLE FOR USE IN COSMETICS
Mica colours are pigments naturally extracted from stone minerals with shiny flakes. What gives mica colours their distinctive shine is their multi-sided colour that is partly due to titanium dioxide. Regarded as the most used colourant, mica colours are enormously used in cosmetic or body care applications such as making bath bombs, soaps, and eye shadows.
In soapmaking, mica works best in clear melt and pour soap applications. It does not clump; however, it tends to be unstable at times in cold process soap. To prevent this, titanium dioxide is added to permit a level of stability not feasible with mica. Titanium dioxide is an ideal ingredient as it also has brightening, thickening, and lubricating properties that help protect the skin.
