PRIMROSE silica coated pigments are hydrophilic pigments that are ideal for O/W and water-rich systems. The silica coating, with a refractive index similar to human skin, provides a soft focus effect by increasing diffuse reflection.




Features and Benefits

• Soft Focus Effect
• Strong Color Intensity (Chroma)
• Wet/Dry Color Stability
• Acid Resistance
• Excellent Color Development
• Good Dispersibility into Water
• Improved Dispersion Stability
• Ease of Use


Water-rich Systems: As the trend towards O/W systems continues, Primrose pigments help overcome some of the typical drawbacks of O/W systems such as gritty feel, weak color development, and wet/dry color stability. As such, formulating chemists will be able to formulate systems with the “fresh” watery feel of O/W systems with the added benefit of soft focus color pigments.
