    Pigments can be divided into three categories: synthetic pigments, inorganic pigments, and natural plant and animal pigments according to their sources.

    Synthetic pigments are also called organic synthetic pigments or tar pigments. According to their chemical structure, synthetic pigments can be divided into azo series, triphenylmethane series, quinoline series and other pigments.

    Inorganic pigments are called mineral pigments. White pigments used in cosmetics, such as talc, zinc white, titanium dioxide, etc .; colored pigments, such as iron oxide, carbon black, oxidized chlorine, etc.
