Carmine is an aluminum and calcium salt of carminic acid. It is one of the most ancient natural dyes, derived from the shells of the female insect Coccus Cacti. It is commonly used to achieve bright reds and pinks in lipsticks. Coal tar based colorants, the synthetic alternatives to Carmine, can irritate lips, dry lips out and thus are very problematic.
