Unisphere® Bicolor

The color changing beads

Brief description and main properties
Induchem is a gold standard of quality and consistency in the field of visual carrier systems. Our Unispheres® technology is based on our unique manufacturing process that creates spherical beads from cellulose and sugars.
The new generation of Unispheres® is based on a unique technology to create new metamorphosis effects in your white emulsions and creams. They are composed of a thick white coating to cover completely the color of the core and leaving no residue during application. A pigmented core initially invisible in the formula, then releases color and transforms the white cream to a tinted one upon application.
