World of Dazzling Effects

World of Dazzling Effects

Merck is constantly adding new colors and effects to its sophisticated lines of pearlescent pigments and functional fillers.

Rainbows, gold, and satin – your new color stories
Based on synthetic mica, these versatile pigments have a very low heavy metal content and are a breeze to formulate with while conforming to all regulations and requirements. All pigments yield intense brilliance, ultimate color purity, extra luster, and amplified color effects:

 
  • Five new Timiron® SynBeam interference pigments let you explore the rainbow of colors in gold, copper, red, blue and violet. The particle size of these intensely shimmering pigments ranges from 5 to 40 µm. 
  • The new Colorona® SynRussian Gold boasts a strong golden shade. With a particle size between 5 and 40 µm, this pigment adds brilliant shine, a luxurious skin feel, and rich metallic sheen to all cosmetic applications.
  • The silverwhite pigment Timiron® SynWhite Satin provides a satin effect and comes as a clear white powder. It features a smaller particle size of 5 to 25 µm providing smooth skin feel.

The purity of these new pigments makes them suitable especially for applications on lips and around the eye. Like all of Merck’s raw materials, these exciting pigments in fashion-forward colors and with dramatic effects come with complete documentation and the dedicated support you need.

Dark and lustrous - Ronastar® Diamond Black
Take a very first look at Ronastar® Diamond Black at In-Cosmetics 2012!
This unique lustrous, very dark effect pigment will be launched in summer 2012. The dark cosmetic pigment gives products such as mascaras, eyeliners, eye shadows and nail polish a glamorous, incomparable shine and offers impressive covering power.


Soft focus effects – for instant perfection
The new functional filler RonaFlair® LDP White delivers an instant soft focus effect and backs up anti-aging claims.
The composition is based on white ceramic microspheres (2-20 µm), has no color impact on final cosmetic products and helps create picture-perfect porcelain skin – an effect that is particularly popular in Asia. Thanks to the advanced coating technology the microspheres scatter incident light, thus minimizing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. Based on Merck’s proprietary measuring method you can yet offer your consumers measurable soft focus effects.


Unbeatable benefits for texture improvement
Also new to our functional filler family: RonaFlair® SynMica M. Thanks to its platelet structure RonaFlair® SynMica M provides virtually every cosmetic formulation with smooth and delicate textures as well as optimized wear properties.
