Colorants as dyes, pigments and pigment preparations

We explain the difference

“Colorants” is used as a general term here. Such products can be divided into dyes, pigments and pigment preparations. A dye can be dissolved in other mediums, such as water or other solvents, while pigments come in solid form. They are non-dissolvable and must be dispersed. Pigment preparations, on the other hand, come as various pigment dispersions.

Colorants with the EU Ecolabel

Such products can be denoted by the labels Nordic Swan or the Blue Angel as well as the EU Ecolabel.
