Monograph on Colorants Used in Cosmetics



The SCC currently has nine different monographs available on various cosmetic topics. The latest monograph is“Colorants Used in the Cosmetics Industry.”

The purpose of this monograph is to give the reader a general idea and overview of the basic concepts and principles of color usage in the cosmetics industry. Basic knowledge along with hands-on experience will show how color can be understood and used successfully in cosmetic products to develop shades as well as adjust and modify shades using cosmetically acceptable colorants.
