Effect Pigments

New looks for personal care

Effect pigments are nowadays widely used in colour care applications, as they provide a touch of lustre and sparkle in make-up products. However, they can also give additional performance benefits in other personal care products such as skin care and body cleansing products, and enable the creation of modern beauty care products with fascinating new looks.

Mascara

A magical impact

The mascara brush, with which today we are so familiar, was invented more than 50 years ago. There is a constant flow of mascara brushes in new shapes and colours appearing on the market, but despite all of the development work the original brush was never superceded. The new type of brush/pencil from Avon (the “Mega Effects Mascara”) is a completely new approach and earns our Star of the Month.
