Clariant launches aqueous pigment dispersions with new preservation system

The updated Cosmenyl 100 range is said to meet the latest Cosmetics Regulation requirements

Clariant has created a line of aqueous pigment dispersions featuring a new state-of-the-art preservation system.

The company says it has proactively optimised its Cosmenyl 100 range to meet the latest regulatory requirements under the European Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009, which limits the use of preservatives.

The new system used for the Cosmenyl 100 range does not contain ortho-phenylphenol (O-PP), methylisothiazolinone (MIT) or parabens.

The range is also included in at least one of the authorised use lists for cosmetics colourants for the EU, US and Japan, and fulfils strict microbiological specifications, says Clariant.

Clariant has 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 colour trends.

“Colour can positively influence consumers’ perception of a home or personal care product,” said Gabriela Catanoiu, Global Technical Manager for Home and Personal Care Colorants at Clariant. “Perhaps highlighting a special property or effect of a particular ingredient inside a shampoo, liquid hand soap, or skin care mask.”

She noted that “the latter is growing in popularity as more consumers seek comfort from self-indulgence during current uncertain times”.
