Our commitment to quality begins with our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities.

Skilled Team of Experts

Behind every color formulation and production run is a team of skilled experts. Our chemists and technicians bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the table, ensuring that each batch of color meets our exacting standards.


## A Comprehensive Quality Control Journey

Raw Material Inspection

The quality control process starts at the very beginning, with a thorough inspection of raw materials. Whether it’s a natural or synthetic colorant, each component is meticulously examined for purity, consistency, and adherence to specifications.


Precision Formulation

Our color formulations are a result of careful precision. The right blend of ingredients is crucial not only for achieving the desired hue but also for ensuring stability and safety. Our formulation process is guided by a commitment to excellence at every step.


Stringent Production Checks

During production, real-time checks and monitoring mechanisms are in place to guarantee that the colors being manufactured align with our high-quality standards. Any deviations are addressed promptly to maintain consistency.


Testing Protocols

Once the colors are produced, they undergo a battery of tests. These include tests for purity, solubility, stability, and other critical parameters like heavy metals for human safety by using sophisticated instruments e.g. 

  1. a)  Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrophotometry (ICP-OES);
  2. b) High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC);
  3. c) Ion Chromatography (IC)
  4. d) Gas Chromatography (GC)

Our testing protocols are designed to identify any issues that may compromise the quality of the end product.


Compliance Assurance

As a manufacturer catering to the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and personal care industries, compliance with regulatory standards is non-negotiable. Our quality control process includes rigorous checks to ensure that our colors consistently meet and exceed the requirements set by the FDA.
