Hi, I want to start a small cosmetics company. Is there any special lighting required in the room where you mix pigments? Thanks so much!

    Full-spectrum lighting is what I'd suggest.

  • Bob is correct. You need either full-spectrum LED lamps (for a small lab) or you could take a look at the Philips ALTO range of full-spectrum discharge lamps as used in clothes stores etc, which produce an equivalent to sunlight. Actually I have a 150 watt version and in the winter it is like having sunshine inside the house. Lovely!

    If you want to get really fancy, the walls should be painted neutral grey. An alternative is to use a color-matching booth: http://www.xrite.com/macbeth-lighting
