Base pigments - the foundation of your color palette!
January, 01st, 2024
In our work as PMU stylists, we are faced with a variety of different customers with different skin types as well as individual wishes and preferences. In order to offer a truly complete product range, it would be ideal to have countless pigment shades in our assortment, wouldn't it?
At Swiss Color, you not only get the most popular ready-made color mixtures, but also all the individual components for access to an almost limitless PMU color spectrum:
Our Base Pigments! Now extended by four inorganic pigment colors!
Use them to adapt existing shades in subtle nuances to the individual needs of your customers or mix your desired color from scratch. This allows you to emphasize the uniqueness of every personality!
What makes the base pigments special? As the name suggests, they are the basis for all other Swiss Color shades. Each Base Pigment contains only a single, pure colorant. This means that no undesirable undertones need to be taken into account when mixing. Due to their strong color intensity, they should be used carefully and in small quantities.
The Swiss Color Base pigments:
White pigment colors in the cosmetics industry, such as our 101 White, consist mainly of titanium dioxide*. Due to its high opacity and brightness, this inorganic pigment is particularly suitable for creating powdery shades.
Organic Base Pigments
Organic* base pigments shine with their expressive and fresh elegance. 102 Yellow, 103 Orange, 104 Red and 105 Dark Magenta allow you to mix intense and dynamic pigment colors and significantly broaden the spectrum of your color palette.
NEW: Inorganic Base Pigments
Our four new base pigments, 106 Gold, 107 Terra, 108 Amarone and 109 Black, contain iron oxides* as an inorganic component. These give the colors a matte, natural look and bind them into the skin for longer.
- 106 Gold - Mixed color to lighten naturally blonde eyebrows
- 107 Terra - Natural terracotta shade for warming up mixed colors
- 108 Amarone - Chestnut kisses mahogany for striking lip, brow and areola colors
- 109 Black - Ideal for eyeliner touch-ups and finely dosed for darkening mixed colors
*All Swiss Color shades are made from high-quality raw materials in state-of-the-art production processes and are synthetically prepared.
109 Black - a different kind of black
Our black pigment colors 301 Ultrablack, 302 Jetblack and 303 Stardust with Carbon Black achieve pure, intensely beautiful eyeliner results. However, they are not suitable as mixing colors. Instead, use 109 Black to darken eyebrow colors and give your pigmentation a longer hold in the skin.
Variety for unmistakable expressiveness
Don't be satisfied with a range of standard colors! The organic and inorganic base pigments from Swiss Color are your basic equipment for the individual fine-tuning of color mixtures and the creation of your own color nuances.
