Impact Colors and Sandream Enterprises announce merger
The effect pigment companies joined forces at the start of the year and are making plans to bring more products and services to cosmetics and personal care customers globally.

The reconfigured Sandream Impact is headquartered in Fairfield, New Jersey. And as of last Thursday, 31 December 2015, the Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, offices and Newark, Delaware, application laboratory that formerly comprised Impact Colors are closed.

During the transition

For materials sourcing buyers and cosmetics chemists dealing with Sandream Impact, nothing will change in the short term.

“You will continue to work with the same people in our companies for order placements, sample requests and technical assistance, until further notice,”​ explains the company in a statement to the press.

“The products and services we have provided you in the past will continue to be offered by the united entity,” ​promises Sandream Impact.

This means that for now product names will not change and neither will contact details like company phone numbers and web addresses.

Designs on the future

As with most mergers, the Sandream Impact business will likely grow not just by virtue of combining two companies in to a larger one but also by eliminating redundancies and streamlining production.

To bring larger product portfolios and more technical support services to customers, the united companies will likely be refreshing the Sandream Impact offerings and marketing strategy in the coming months.

“You will hear much more about the new Sandream Impact business in the near future,” ​declares the company in the statement.

Effect generator

The new company will certainly continue to focus on special effect pigments made with mica, synthetic mica, silicate, flaked aluminium, cellulose, and more.

And since pigment innovations coincide with available materials, technologies, and consumer trends, Impact Colors’ 2015 launch of Chromagix multi-variable pigments may be typical of things to come. These particular color ingredients, which Impact showcased at the In-Cosmetics event in Barcelona, Spain, are prismatic, changing with movement, angle, and the intensity of lighting.

Now, “with its expanded R&D and production site in Fairfield, NJ, Sandream Impact has more space and equipment to meet customers’ extensive needs for innovative products,” ​according to the press statement.  

“From specialty pearls and pigment dispersions to technical assistance and product development, Sandream Impact can accommodate the ever changing requirements of its customers in the cosmetic and personal care industries.”
