Sensient Cosmetic Technologies teams have worked on upcoming trends to illustrate their vision for the future of beauty as well as formulate different concepts to inspire your next beauty creation.

Tasty Paradise: indulge your senses

For 2017, Sensient has looked at how new means of communication have empowered individuals with a higher sense of self-assertion and a more acute awareness for major societal and environmental issues around the world. People are now striving to reach this comforting balance between indulgence, genuine happiness and a more ethical and responsible lifestyle.
Our inspiration, “Tasty Paradise,” is the epitomization of this philosophy. We associate it with individuals who dovetail beauty with general wellness. Healthful and delicious food inspires a more balanced lifestyle, mixing pleasure, aesthetic and wellness.

Color palette

As color specialists, Sensient’s team decided to work on fruity, succulent and sunny shades. The color range is warm and soft, and it includes sun-kissed skin tones and fresh hues. The colors evoke wide and calming horizons, delicate fruits freshly harvested on a warm summer morning, and earthy elements.
