Interference/ Duochrome Pigments

When dry Interference/Duochrome Pigments look like plain white powder but if you rub them onto your skin or make them wet, they reveal the most amazing iridescent hues hidden within them. Spectacular used in lip gloss, nail polish, pressed eyeshadows, loose powder eyeshadows, lotions, gel candles, CP soap and M&P soap etc.

Statement: We have received enquiries from some customers who are quite rightly concerned about child labour practices relating to the mining of mica in India. We never have and nor do we now source or stock any products at all from India. You can rest assured that any product you may purchase in this store has not been the subject of child labour or animal testing.

Interference pigments are made by depositing various layers of either titanium dioxide or iron oxide onto mica particles. When light hits the surface of these particles, it is then reflected and refracted by the various layers which results in multi colours. By increasing either the thickness of the titanium dioxide or the iron oxide a broad colour spectrum range can be produced. These extraordinary colours will change when viewed at various angles.

Interference Pigments should not be mixed together but used individually. Due to their complex colour changes produced through light reflection and refraction, mixing them together will only produce white. In contrast when added to absorption pigments, which are colours that are normally darker and absorb light rather than reflect, the ever changing colours of Interference will be enhanced greatly. Amazing effects can also be created in nail varnishes and liquid bases.

5g sample sizes are packed in our 20g U-Makeitup pots which are very practical and easy to store. 

Other weights are packed in resealable stand up griplock bags.
