From the manufacturer
Winsor & Newton Cotman Water Colour
Cotman Water Colours are a range of water colours that are made to our normal high quality standards but costs are kept to an economical level by replacing some of the more costly pigments with less expensive alternatives.
A wider Palette of twelve 8 milliliters tubes of Cotman Water Colour, extending mixing and painting possibilities. Includes: Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Red Pale Hue, Crimson Alizarine, Ultramarine, Cerulean Blue, Prussian Blue, Emerald Green, Yellow Ochre, Raw Sienna, Raw Umber, Ivory Black, China White. Actual contents may vary.
Costs are kept to an economical level by replacing some of the more costly pigments with less expensive alternatives. Pigments derive from a number of sources: Some are natural products, notably the earths, e.g. umbers, ochres; others come from metal compounds and are sometimes termed 'traditional' or 'genuine', e.g. ultramarine.
The distillation of petroleum yields an ever widening range of organic pigments which are often termed as 'modern'. Many of the pigments used in Cotman are organic.
The Cotman Water Colour range has a more uniform consistency than the Professional Water Colour range and this benefits beginners as there is less to learn about each individual pigment. The Cotman Water Colour range also relates to the Winsor & Newton Professional Water Colour range, e.g. Burnt Sienna in both ranges has the same hue. This enables artists to use colours from both ranges with minimal adjustment to their technique.
White in the Range
Traditionally the white of the paper provides the brilliance to water colour and can be used as highlights. However, some artists utilize Chinese White for highlights at the end of their painting or in dulling some colour mixtures down.

Edit: Been using these for a little while now and they're actually a fairly nice set. Remember that they aren't "artist grade" paints, but they certainly do a good job. I use them for both practice and regular painting.
If you're looking to put them in your palette, just be a bit careful. A couple of them have chipped off and they tend to crack a little. But all in all I support this product and recommend it for those starting out or if you want a cheaper set of paints.
