Univar Colour have been producing coloured blends for toothpaste & mouth wash manufacture for many years. We can work with your stipulated ingredient sources or you can choose to work with colours and ingredients from our own extensive portfolio.  

The main challenges when incorporating powders into large volume batch production is in the weighing and blending. Just a few grams too much or too little of a colour can cause an entire production to be rejected. Likewise if the blending isn't exactly the same every time you can experience poor dispersion and batch to batch variability.

We agree your colour standard and ensure that batch to batch you don't experience variation. Understanding the importance of adding exactly the right quantity, we can pre blend your colours in a medium of choice and can supply in pre weighed batch dosage units.
