Colorflow liquid crystals are unique blends of cholesteryl esters carefully formulated to produce an exciting range of visual effects. The most striking quality of these cholesteric liquid crystal mixtures is the opalescent/iridescent appearance that arises from the way they selectively reflect visible light. Careful formulation can produce mixtures with visual impact across the color spectrum.

These special materials can provide an aesthetic quality to a range of aqueous gels and lip-gloss products. They have an occlusive emolliency when applied to the skin and have also been used to deliver and stabilize lipophilic active ingredients such as vitamins. Flavors and fragrances can also be added.
