<PRODUCT> PHOTOCHROMIC PIGMENT for COSMETICS

What is "PHOTOCHROMIC PIGMENT"?
This is new functional powder "PHOTOLITE" that can control skin complexion according to the intensity
of UV light.

PK-S is a pale pink, LY-S is a pale yellow pigment, and each has a reversible photochromic property that
changes to dark by UV llight, and recovers its original color slowly if no UV light is applied.

The photochromic foundation can be darkened outdoors where the sunlight is strong to prevent unnatural
whiteness of makeup, and works to make the complexion inconspicuous due to the color difference
inside the room.
