Pantone SkinTones go from Fair to Dark, with four hue groupings, spanning the light to dark colour range. Within each of these is an ascending or descending order of hues to show various shades of SkinTones. Each Pantone SkinTone number is comprised of a four-digit alphanumeric number. The first two positions reflect the hue or undertone of the skin. The second two represent the tone or lightness and darkness of the skin. Realistic skin tones are notoriously difficult to reproduce, the SkinTone Guide is the only available skin tone colour guide based on actual human skin measurement for greater accuracy and realism.

The guide is excellent for:

  • Photography - photo retouching.

  • Medical - base creation or product matching.
