Annatto Paprika oleoresin (or oil) is a thick orange colored liquid which is obtained by mixing Annatto oleoresin and Paprika Oleoresin. Paprika oleoresin is obtained by the extraction of lipids and pigments from the pods of the Capsicum Annuum Linne, which is a sweet red pepper growing in moderate climates. Annatto oleoresin is thin resinous aril portion of seeds of Annatto (Bixa Orellana), which is native to northern South America.

Both plants contain a pigment carotenoid – capsanthin which is rich in color with a reddish orange hint. The color obtained from Paprika oleoresin is not stable and over time color starts to fade. Paprika oleoresin if used alone can cause skin sensitivity and gives a spicy effect on skin. Thus, it is mixed with annatto oleoresin to make it more stable and reduce its harsh effects on skin.

It is used as a natural coloring agent in cosmetics, candles and soaps to provide colors in shades of orange. It has lack of toxicity as compared to synthetic colorants and thus is a popular and natural alternative to synthetic colors. Annatto Paprika oleoresin is increasingly being used in clean label products and products with natural ingredients. It is finding its application in Lipsticks, Lipbalms, Lotions, serums, shampoos, conditioners, creams, Anti-aging lotions, Cold process soaps, Melt & Pour soaps and Baby products. It can also be used in foundation creams, face washes, cleansers etc.
