Sun Chemical puts fresh squeeze on orange effect pigments

US firm Sun Chemical has launched two chromatic orange effect pigments: Flamenco Summit Orange and Reflecks Dimensions Metallic Orange.

The New Jersey outfit says the boldest orange on natural mica in the portfolio, Flamenco Summit Orange, is a versatile effect pigment based on patented multilayer technology that provides a rich, clean orange colour and bright reflectivity.

Flamenco Summit Orange can be used across a variety of cosmetic, skin care and personal care formulations.

The orange pigment completes the Flamenco Summit line of effect pigments, which are all made with 100% USA mica sourced from Sun Chemical’s mine in Hartwell, Geogia.

Meanwhile, Reflecks Dimensions Metallic Orange is said to offer eye-catching sparkle and is a borosilicate-based effect pigment with an intense, metallic colour.

The rich chroma and enhanced sparkling effects are created by Sun Chemical’s patented multilayer technology and is ideal for bold statement looks.

“We launched the first Flamenco Orange over 40 years ago, and since then we’ve continually improved on our technology to bring more chromatic and advanced new effects to the cosmetics market,” said Bart Vanderbiest, Global Director Cosmetics, Colour Materials, Sun Chemical.

“As a leader in colour innovation, we strive to deliver high quality products that push the boundaries of colour and are rooted in our strong sustainability focus. Today, we’re excited to introduce these two bold orange effects to support colour’s bright return in the world of beauty.”
