A recent request to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency asked the agency to reconsider its final risk evaluation regarding C.I. Pigment Violet 29.

Do you believe that the EPA’s rulemaking should remain in effect?

Researchers from Oregon State University’s College of Science have reported that they’re looking at new ways to design pigments to be more stable, durable and non-toxic with vivid hues.
