Innovating within a constrained regulatory framework

Imagining new trends despite regulations

We put our 15 years of expertise in color intelligence at your disposal to create customized solutions.

For our teams, the regulatory framework is an additional challenge that imposes a reflection on the design and development of future revolutionary formulas.

Be inventive to reduce development time

In the health, cosmetics and food sectors, there are many reasons to innovate: changes in standards, multiple regulations, new consumer expectations, etc. Competition also stimulates the market and requires constant adaptation, redesign or rethinking of a product.

At OliKrom, we place innovation at the heart of our strategy and one of our requirements is to always be at the forefront in the field of intelligent materials.

We have at our disposal a wide range of elementary bricks that we assemble to create high-performance intelligent materials. We adapt the optical response of the materials to your project to make the material reactive to temperature, light (photochromes and luminescents), pressure, the presence of a solvent or a gas.

Our main objective is to reduce the time between the idea and the marketing of the product. Do you have a project? Our experts are at your disposal.

We create high performance smart materials for you

An smart material that complies with the regulations


Today, there are many websites that offer effect pigments, even inks, varnishes or cosmetic products without complying with the regulations in force.

One of the challenges for our teams is to innovate by creating future effects, while respecting these extremely constrained regulatory fields.

To meet this challenge, we rely on our Research Department. Our scientific experts master all the physical phenomena responsible for color change.

One of the most important steps is the choice of raw materials, including the selection of known ingredients. Today, we have at our disposal a large library of molecules that can be stimulated by temperature, light, pH variation, the presence of humidity... Many other molecules are still unknown to create innovative materials and in total adequacy with the multiplicity of regulations.

A personalized effect for each consumer


Personalization is a new demand from consumers who are increasingly demanding. A cosmetic product must, for example, be able to adapt to each person's skin type. The offer must also be adapted to the local expectations of each country. This is the challenge of tailor-made beauty.

At OliKrom, we have the ability to change the color of the object, to make it controllable, to modulate it on demand, as many times as you want, and especially when you want.

The mastery of these effects allows us to consider the creation of mass-produced items (for cost optimization) but customizable to offer a unique experience.. This is the promise of our smart materials.
