Colour Road 2023 – Colours for Cosmetics

Sustainable Colours for Cosmetics Industry


The concept of travelling generally serves as a beautiful metaphor for human nature. It means progress and change, as well as experiences, encounters, insights and the beauty of what lies ahead. Travel is associated with
curiosity, excitement, anticipation and emotions – it is, simply put, the essence of what it means to feel truly alive.

In our Colour Road 2023 for the cosmetics industry, we are focusing on travelling. It’s human nature to want to explore the unknown, so that we can have new experiences that delight our senses and open up new perspectives for us, and we also want these same experiences from the beauty & care products we use: emotional journeys into different (emotional) worlds!

After the times of lockdowns and restrictions as a result of the pandemic, make up is making a strong comeback, driven by the demand for bold colours and effects. There is new-found momentum in the cosmetics industry with interplay between essentials, sustainability, creative boldness and innovation.

The new trend colours open up new spheres for us to explore: To the DEEP LEVEL, where we break free of conventions to celebrate uniqueness and creativity. To the ESSENTIAL LEVEL, where we become aware of biological diversity, natural materials and our responsibility for the earth’s ending resources. And finally to the COSMIC LEVEL, where we can experience experimental progress and become adaptable to new challenges.

Alongside the right choice of colour for your product comes the appropriate selection of polymer material. The strongest trend here is toward recycling, which is why, for the first time, Lifocolor has developed several pioneering
shades from 100% recycled materials. Whether it’s for virgin materials, recycled materials or biopolymers, we advise you on how your desired (trend) colour shade may look like with different materials. So join our journey to the perfect colour for your product!
