Natural colours, food colouring and food stuff flavouring for the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and catering industries
At Sensient Technologies we understand the value of colouring whether it is food colours, pharmaceutical colours or even natural colours. This colouring goes into a range of products from food and drink to medicines, make-up, printing supplies and digital imaging.
Many edible products would seem unpalatable were it not for our food colors. When it comes to pharmaceuticals colours and cosmetics, getting the exact shade our customers require is essential. This is especially true for items such as foundation, blusher and lipstick.
We don't just stop at colour however. At Sensient we understand that in order for a product to be successful in today's global market place it is not just down to one sensory experience. For instance sight (colour) is just as important as taste (flavour) and smell (fragrance). And that is why we also specialise in producing the finest and most accurate flavourings and fragrances imaginable. Again this is a fine art and takes years of dedicated expertise and skill.
In addition, at Sensient state of the art technology also plays its part together with our highly-qualified research teams. The Sensient name is simply synonymous with quality and diversity and our raw materials ie food colours, flavours and range of fragrances, can be found in thousands of products worldwide.
All of these factors are the reason why Sensient is the undisputed market leader in its field, operating in more than 30 countries and employing thousands of staff worldwide.
In terms of pharmaceuticals the Color Group of Sensient is the world's leading manufacturer of regulated colors. We also produce high quality natural extracts for nutraceuticals. This is done via a number of pharmaceutical colors and coating systems eg Spectrablend.
Our cosmetics division concentrates on colors as well as material for hair and skin products and fragrances. This includes sunscreens and active ingredients.
When it comes to personal and home care products such as bath gel, shampoo, skin creams, baby powder and after shave, Sensient provides combined manufacturing packages thanks to years of expertise in color, fragrance and speciality ingredients.
Cleaning fluids, insecticides and washing powders are also on the receiving end of the dedicated Sensient experience.
We're extremely proud of our 75 year legacy in developing fragrance in the personal and home care market. You can find the Sensient fragrance in a number of products used on a daily basis around the world such as shampoos, cosmetics and various household cleaning products.
Digital imaging and inkjet printing are just two of the areas to benefit from our inkjet and speciality inks branch. Our products in this range include component colour dyes and pigments as well as finished inks and digital printing applications. Our Formulabs brand is particularly popular for digital marking components.
Manufacturers in digital display imaging are familiar with our raw materials for producing their Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) and organic photoconductors. Televisions, computers, digital cameras, mobile phones, laser printers and a number of flat-panel displays all benefit from our expertise in producing the right kind of colours for this area.
