CameleonCaps are globally approved encapsulated pigments and are durable during formulation and scale up. CameleonCaps™ break easily beneath fingertips upon application for dramatic and consistent colour transformation. They keep the pigments hidden within formulations, maintaining a bright white, clean appearance in emulsions, and a transparent visual in water gels. 

Once applied, they can be a visual marker to show a fresh active material release. They can be used in hydrous and anhydrous formulations and cold process to hot pour production.
