Discover Xirona® Le Rouge

Xirona® Le Rouge 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 Rouge is a truly unique, highly stable and luscious 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.

Combinations with clear red or bluish-red colorants intensify the vibrant red tone. Xirona® Le Rouge allows formulating various shades of red and is a strong companion of various interference pigments. The addition of interference red, blue, or violet effect pigments result in highly stable and attractive red or pastel pink shades. Additionally, it can function as a background color for the rest of its Xirona® kinsmen.
