Key Drivers of Cosmetic Colorants Market

  • Low cost of labor in Asia vis-à-vis that in western countries is encouraging cosmetic manufacturers to procure high quality cosmetic colorants from companies in Asia at a lower price compared to that in other regions. Constant rise in GDP of developing countries such as India is also one of the key drivers that are positively impacting the sales of cosmetic colorants. Increase in purchasing power and disposable income of individuals in Asia is encouraging consumers to buy premium luxury goods such as cosmetics. This is boosting the demand of cosmetic colorants in the region.
  • Use of herbal ingredients in cosmetics minimizes the chances of any side-effects. People are increasingly opting for herbal or chemical-free cosmetic products. Consumption of chemical-free ingredients in the production of cosmetics products has increased of late. This is propelling the demand for organic colorants.
  • Demand of color cosmetic products (foundation and mascara), skincare products, and hair care products such as shampoos, conditioners, and hair colors has been increasing across the globe. This is augmenting the demand for cosmetic colorants.

Key Restraints of Cosmetic Colorants Market

  • Artificial colorants are made from petroleum by-products or coal tar. These colorants are added to cosmetics such as blushes, eye shadows, and other makeup products to enhance brightness and beauty. However, inorganic pigment/dyes, which are synthesized from chemicals, are frequently found in colorants that can be linked to skin allergies, chromosomal damage, and asthma. Certain colorants such as Yellow #6, Red #40, and Green # 3 are banned in some countries such as Norway and Sweden. Thus, side-effects of inorganic colorants on the human body and restrictions imposed by Norway and Sweden on certain cosmetic colorants can negatively affect the cosmetic colorants market.

Cosmetic Colorants Market: Application Segment

  • Based on application, cosmetic colors are primarily used in lip products. Lip products such as lipsticks and lip balms are used to protect lips from cracking in dry air. Various types of colors are used in lip products; red is the commonly used color. Lipsticks can be colored with soluble dyes/insoluble pigments. Prior to 1920, natural dyes were used as colorants in lip products. Later, manufacturers started using bromo acid to produce various colors such as red, blue-red, orange-red, or red-red.
  • Facial products such as facial foundation and mascara contain cyclopentasiloxane, water, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, sodium chloride, benzyl alcohol, phenoxyethanol, and various other chemicals. Titanium dioxide is used to enhance the brightness of cosmetic products. Mica is primarily used in powder-based cosmetics. Iron oxide is used to achieve red, yellow, and black colors.
  • Companies engaged in the production of facial and body products such as sunscreen lotions, face wash, and moisturizers offer organic and inorganic products. Rise in demand for these products is expected to propel the demand for cosmetic colorants in the near future.
  • Titanium dioxide, chromium oxide greens, manganese violet, bismuth oxychloride, chromium hydroxide green, ferric ferrocyanide, and carmine are some of the key ingredients of colorants used in eyeliners. Carmine is a red colorant derived from crushed insect bodies. It is mostly used in eye makeup products. Rise in demand for eyeliners in pencil and liquid forms is propelling the demand for inorganic colorants.
