DermaGlo™ DGP-20 is the only legal phosphorescent pigment for cosmetics that meets the purity specifications outlined by US FDA (Consult 21 CFR73.229). DGP-20 charges quickly by daylight, incandescent, fluorescent or UV light and produces a bright green emission color without an external light source. The length of the “afterglow” depends on pigment concentration, surface area and charging time. DGP-20 can be used up to 10% by weight of the final product provided it is not for regular or “daily use”. A good example would be Halloween make up*.
*DGP cannot be used in the eye area. See Technical bulletin for further description.
