Sun Chemical has launched the next instalment of its cosmetics trends programme ‘Intuitive Nature’. This focuses on seasonal trends and includes two major chapters: ‘Bloom’ for spring and summer 2023, and ‘Evolution for autumn and winter. “Its 16 virtually rendered shades are created with a combination of featured effect pigments to match two seasonal colour palettes,” the company said.
Based on the themes of self-love and self-care, the ‘Bloom; formulations include colour and skin care applications in “innovative and playful textures”. These include Cloisonné Vibrant Raspberry, a vegan metallic-like, carmine-free effect pigment based on natural mica from the US. This is said to offer “bold magenta colour and premium formulation stability, ideal for all beauty formulations”.
‘Evolution’, meanwhile, is based around the themes of self-acceptance and sustainability. The hybrid products Sun Chemical is highlighting feature formulations with “multiple functions and benefits, a simpler routine, and a reduction in waste”. The colour palette comprises nature-inspired shades and dark, muted tones complemented with bright neutrals.
Prominent among them is Reflecks MD Midnight Sapphire, “a dazzling colour travel effect pigment boasting high chroma colour and alluring sparkle based on a borosilicate substrate”. An absorption colourant is embedded into the pigment “resulting in a dramatic effect, with minimised staining on the skin, and simplified product formulations”.
