Description

INCI:
Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tin Oxide, [+/- CI 77891, CI 77491]

Features & Functions

A new generation of synthetic mica flakes, these high definition effect pigments utilize a unique patented technology designed to coat synthetic mica in a novel, unconventional way. Unlike conventional layered pigments, Arcopearl™ FEHD Series uses synthetic mica coated by iron oxide and then titanium dioxide to create a new layered pearl pigment. This new layering process creates outstanding visual and sparkle effects that offer exceptional brightness, intense chroma and superior sensory benefits unlike traditional pigments.
