Suspending pigments

Hi there,
Dose somebody know how pigments can be suspended without changing the color of a cream?
To clear it, I've faced a cc cream in which the pigments suspended separately ( I could see the black, yellow and red  pigments while the cream was white). Then  while I was robbing the cream on my hand, the color of the cream turned red/the skin color as usual foundations.
I would be glad if somebody advised me how I can suspend pigments in this way.


  • Did you blend the pigments together before you incorporated them into the cream? Seems like you didn't, which is why you see streaks of individual colors. 
  • I've bought the product, it is on the market. I just don't know whether there is a logic behind its manufacturing or it is just a manufacturing gaffe. 

    Could Granulation processing used in pharmacutical factories for producing tablets be applied?

    There are cosmetic beads that will release color when pressure breaks  them open, several suppliers offer them (Givaudan, Sanddream, Salvona)
    MicroBead™ ColorFx (White to Yellow)

    We used them in a product where a customer wanted a 'shade matching' cream, ie you stop rubbing when you hit the desired color
  • Thank you so much for your response
