Plant based pigments

Are you looking for plant based pigments for your cosmetic products?

I know it can be tough to source out for reliable suppliers. For me, I always have them shipped over from other countries because I don't have any local suppliers at all!

This page will be updated as and when necessary without prior notice.

Here's a list of plants that you can use to produce colors. You can buy the powdered version or dehydrate them yourself!

  • Acai
  • Alkanet
  • Annato
  • Beetroot
  • Blue Tansy
  • Buriti
  • Butterfly Pea
  • Calendula
  • Carrots
  • Elderberry
  • Henna
  • Matcha
  • Red Cabbage
  • Rosehip
  • Saffron
  • Sea Buckthorn
  • Spirulina - Blue
  • Spirulina - Green
  • Tomato
  • Turmeric

Cosmetic Grade Pigments Supplier

Plant based pigments, Mica & Oxides

I also have prepared quite an extensive list of suppliers that specifically manufacture cosmetic pigments.

B2C Companies that you can purchase on their website

These suppliers also state whether the colors are:

  • safe for eyes, lips and/or soap
  • vegan-friendly
  • oil or water solubility
  • made by 100% mica or a blend of mica and oxides

They usually are able to provide you with the Data Sheets and Tests Analysis.

Other Global Suppliers/Manufacturers

Please contact them directly for a sample or purchase. You cannot purchase products directly on their website because they are B2B companies. Most sell in bulk to registered resellers or distributors.

Please note that not all pigments they manufacture are vegan and/or Halal-compliant. Do inquire before you request for the samples.
