The difference between industrial grade pearlescent pigments and cosmetic grade pearlescent pigments

Pearlescent pigment is a kind of sandwich compound formed by depositing metal oxide (titanium dioxide or iron oxide) on natural mica flakes. The main components of mica, titanium and iron oxides are all determined to be very safe to the human body after repeated tests and use. However, the raw materials used in the production of industrial-grade pearlescent pigments are all industrial-grade products. These raw materials do not have strict control of heavy metal indicators. Therefore, the products produced can meet the needs of industrial-grade products in terms of heavy metal indicators but cannot meet the production of cosmetics. Demand.

For the production of special pearlescent pigments for cosmetics, the raw materials used are carefully selected. For mica or other substrates, heavy metal detection is first carried out. Only materials that meet the standards can be used in the production of cosmetics pigments; for other raw materials, high-purity reagents or food-grade raw materials are used. Therefore, the safety of the products produced is guaranteed, and the products must also undergo rigorous testing.

In addition, in the production process of pearlescent pigments, in order to enrich the color spectrum of pearlescent pigments and make pearlescent pigments more vivid, organic pigments are sometimes used to coat pearlescent pigments to produce pearlescent pigments with bright appearances. Organic pigments are very limited in cosmetics. Only a few organic pigments can be used in cosmetics production, and can only be used in areas other than the eyes and lips. Therefore, it is very difficult to use organic pigments to produce pearlescent pigments for cosmetics. suitable. The pearlescent pigments for cosmetics produced at present are all produced with materials that can be used on the parts of the human body in the INCI catalog, most of which are inorganic materials, and a small amount of natural pigments are used.

The choice of raw materials has laid a solid foundation for the safe use of cosmetics-specific pigments, and advanced production processes and technologies provide customers with a variety of products. At the same time, strict quality inspection provides a guarantee for product safety.
