Discover Xirona® Le Coeur

Xirona® Le Coeur is a body-colored pigment with a deep red nuance. Its rich shade of crimson changes to orange-red depending on the viewing angle. The composition consists of silica flakes veiled in layers of silicon dioxide, tin and iron oxide. The pigment’s particle size distribution from 5 to 50 μm creates tempting garnet shaded shimmer.

Xirona® Le Coeur is a truly unique, highly stable, and brilliant shade of red that does not fade. The deep color is perfectly compatible with all types of formulations, whether they are water, oil or solvent based. Additionally, this effect can improve application and spreading behavior with its homogenous, smooth and platy structure, especially nice for lipstick applications.

With no regulatory or application area limits, the sky is truly the limit for formulators with Xirona® Le Coeur. The ability to use this carmine-free cold-red color opens the possibility for vegan red formulations. Highly sought after pink blends can be created with various white and silver-white pigments to achieve pastel pink, rose and violet colors. The strong tinting strength of Le Coeur could render even a highly opaque system a delightful soft pink.
