We supply the scientific solutions to meet consumers’ well-being wishes with our range of Care Solutions.


As the industry’s effect pigment expert, we have a large portfolio of cosmetic effect pigments based on substrates and coating technologies. All our pigments can be used safely, feel incredible on skin and are easy to include in a vast range of products including rinse-off applications.


Our functional fillers add the finishing touch to all cosmetic applications, but especially to color cosmetics and skin care products. Our carefully selected ingredients are multitalented and instantly effective. They can modify textures, improve sensory profiles or application properties.
