Muttenz, October 29, 2020 – Clariant announces a complete range of Cosmenyl 100 next generation aqueous pigment dispersions, featuring a new state-of-the-art preservation system.

Clariant proactively optimized the range to meet the latest regulatory requirements for cosmetic products of the European Cosmetics Regulation No. 1223/2009, which limits the use of the preservatives. The new state-of-the-art preservation system for the Cosmenyl 100 range does not contain ortho-phenylphenol (O-PP), methylisothiazolinone (MIT) or parabens. The range is included in at least one of the authorized use lists for cosmetic colorants for the EU, USA or Japan, and fulfils strict microbiological specifications.

“Color can positively influence consumers’ perception of a Home or Personal Care product,” comments Dr. Gabriela Catanoiu, Global Technical Manager for Home and Personal Care colorants. “Perhaps highlighting a special property or effect of a particular ingredient inside a shampoo, liquid hand soap, or skin care mask. The latter is growing in popularity as more consumers seek comfort from self-indulgence during current uncertain times. Clariant Colorants can also help translating contemporary home deco colors into a hand soap or laundry detegents, or simply capturing the up-lifting cosmetic color trends for make up. Our updated range can help formulators safely and brilliantly color their liquid, powder, or paste products.”

Clariant has just completed the updated range with two new yellows and a carmine that correlate well with creating the warm yellow, orange and deeper hues predicted for 2021 color trends[1].

Next-generation Cosmenyl 100 pigment dispersions provide the readily flowable and pumpable benefits already valued by customers. The range offers various shades of colors suitable for coloring a wide range of Personal Care products, including soaps, shampoos, toothpaste and eye cosmetics.

The range is also suitable for coloring home and fabric care applications, achieving attractive colored detergents, speckles, and cleaning agents, meeting the latest color trends. The pigment dispersions fulfil EU detergent regulation.
