Paracelsus® bismuth oxychloride

Suitable for application in cosmetics.

Paracelsus® effect pigments are bismuth oxychloride (BiOCl) based pearlescent pigments that impart a rich, satin lustre. The main application for this product range is colour cosmetics. Due to the soft-creamy feeling BiOCl provides to the skin it is also often used in personal care products such as body creams and soaps.

Paracelsus® is the perfect product to create superior brilliance with high pearly lustre effects. The products provide excellent adhesion and coverage with exceptional compressibility and binding characteristics. These virtues make them ideal for applications such as pressed powders and lipsticks. The range contains 11 different shades in powder form with a particle size distribution of 10 – 60 µm. The Silver Pearl range is available in two particle sizes; 1 – 20 µm and 2 – 50 µm.

Paracelsus® Soft Silver Pellets and Paracelsus® NC25 are specifically designed for nail polish. They impart homogeneous brilliance with a high, unique pearly lustre effect. Paracelsus® Soft Silver Pellets contains 98% BiOCl and a 2% Acrylate Copolymer Emulsion and are dry pellets with intense lustre effects making them easy to dose and disperse. Paracelsus® NC25 is a BiOCl pre dispersed in Nitrocellulose. 

GEOTECH provides customers technical support in terms of colour matching. Pigments, shades and finished products can be analyzed in order to help you in the process of choosing the right special effects for your product.
