Pigments & Additives from Huntsman

The pigments and additives division of Huntsman (stand MM60) will promote a range of high-quality pigments and additives during In-Cosmetics. Products of particular interest will include Hombitan AFDC 101 pigment, a super pure grade of titanium dioxide (TiO2). The pigment is a unique, high purity, uncoated, anatase grade of TiO2 with a very narrow particle size distribution that can be used to improve the opacity of premium cosmetic products that need to provide excellent uniform coverage, according to Huntsman.

Delivering better opacity performance than standard white pigment grades, Hombitan AFDC 101 pigment is ideally suited for use in high-end cosmetic formulations including foundations, eye shadows, face powders and lipsticks. It can also be used in aqueous systems such as creams, which use water as a wetting agent.

Hombitan AFDC 101 pigment, which is of mineral origin, is created using a special process technology devised by Huntsman, which gives it greater control over crystal size and particle distribution. The result is a product that combines, in general, the softness of an anatase pigment, with the opacity of a rutile pigment. Used as a white, natural, identical color additive, Hombitan AFDC is produced in Duisburg, Germany, can work on its own or in combination with color pigments.

Other pigments and additives that Huntsman will be putting in the limelight in London will include:
• Hombitan AC360 pigment, primarily used as an additive to enhance color stability;
• Sachtleben RC402 pigment, which is easily dispersed in many different cosmetic applications to achieve light stability;
• UV-Titan, a  versatile titanium dioxide UV-filters;
• Ultramarine pigments to achieve bright blue, violet and pink shades; and
• Sicovit, Ferroxide and TruPure pigments to create intense shades of yellow, red, brown and black.
