In recent years, there has been a growing trend among consumers to seek natural and sustainable alternatives to synthetic ingredients in their cosmetics and skincare products. This includes a shift towards using natural pigments in makeup and skincare, which are derived from plants, fruits, and minerals. Many consumers are concerned about the potential health risks associated with synthetic pigments, such as skin irritation or allergic reactions, as well as the environmental impact of their production and disposal. As a result, consumers actively seek out natural and plant-based alternatives to meet their beauty needs.
The desire for naturally-derived skincare and makeup extends far beyond just the ingredients used — it’s a movement called “Neo-natural” and it emphasizes on using natural and sustainable ingredients in skincare products, without sacrificing efficacy. This movement is a response to the increasing consumer demand for eco-friendly and non-toxic skincare products that deliver real results. Neo-natural skincare products typically contain ingredients that are plant-based, organic, cruelty-free, and sustainably sourced. These products are often free from harsh chemicals, such as parabens, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances, which can be harmful to both the skin and the environment. Instead, neo-natural skincare products focus on natural ingredients like botanical extracts, essential oils, and vitamins to nourish and rejuvenate the skin. The trend towards neo-natural skincare is not just a passing fad, but rather a movement towards a more conscious and sustainable approach to beauty.
Tapping on the neo-natural movement, Sensient Beauty has developed the NATPURE COLFINE pigments that are derived from plants, including purple potatoes, black carrot, beetroot, radish and turmeric. This year, two new shades are added to the NATPURE COLFINE range — NATPURE COLFINE PLUM C314 and CRIMSON R319 — extending the current shade offerings to six.
Natpure Colfine Applications
Sensient Beauty’s NATPURE COLFINE pigments offer numerous applications in skincare, makeup, and hair care products. Derived from natural sources, these pigments provide a safe and eco-friendly alternative to synthetic colorants. NATPURE COLFINE pigments also possess active properties, such as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, that can enhance the overall effectiveness of a product. Additionally, they are soluble in water and dispersible in oil, making them easy to incorporate into a wide range of formulations. These pigments can be used in lipsticks, lip glosses, blushes, and other cosmetic products, as well as in shampoos, conditioners, and hair dyes. The use of NATPURE COLFINE pigments can help formulators create high-quality, natural products that meet the demands of conscious consumers.

This black lipstick is a unique formulation that features NATPURE COLFINE P313 botanical pigment derived from potato, providing color for the lips. With 20% NATPURE COLFINE pigment, the lipstick appears black in the mass but changes to a red hue when applied to the skin. The lipstick also contains COVASTEROL, a blend of plant phytosterols with lanolin-like emolliency, which gives the skin a smooth and silky texture. This innovative formula not only provides bold, dramatic color but also nourishes and conditions the lips — a must-have product for anyone looking for a unique and effective cosmetic option.

With the added benefits of superfood ingredients, this lip oil nourishes and conditions the lips, leaving them feeling soft and smooth.
This Superfood Clay Mask provides a fun and unique masking experience. The mask contains AMIDON DE MAIS MST and SENSIBEAD SI175 powders, which help to absorb excess oil and impurities from the skin. The NATPURE COLFINE range of botanical pigments derived from superfoods provides not only a beautiful color but also a range of benefits for the skin. Simply pour out the powder and mix it with water to create a smooth and creamy texture. Apply it to your face and allow it to stay on for 5 to 10 minutes until it dries, then rinse it off with warm water. With regular use, this mask can help to nourish, brighten, and clarify the skin, leaving it looking and feeling healthy and radiant.
Rose Mint Bath Salt
A real treat during a self-care sesh, the Rose Mint Bath Salt features the NATPURE COLFINE POPPY R311, a botanical pigment that adds a beautiful coral red color to the otherwise colorless sea salt. When added to dry formulas, this pigment has the ability to plate dry ingredients, providing a pop of color. Once added to water, NATPURE COLFINE POPPY R311 dissolves and changes from coral red to a stunning shade of purple due to the change in overall pH. This bath salt not only provides a luxurious and aromatic bath experience but also a visual delight, making it the perfect addition to any self-care routine.
