SEPPIC combines eco-design and innovative textures

On the occasion of the latest edition of the in-cosmetics tradeshow, SEPPIC presented new eco-friendly formulas selected among proposals from its five laboratories around the world. Furthermore, the ingredients supplier is launching two new ranges of biodegradable emollients, in cooperation with Total Special Fluids.

Seppic’s five Beauty Care laboratories throughout the world (USA, Brazil, France, China) have created eight new green formulas. This collaborative initiative has been built around three of the company’s CSR [1] policy commitments:

- decreasing environmental impact,
- innovating sustainably,
- making the company socially responsible.

For instance, in order to limit water use in the packaging process and to reduce the carbon footprint, SEPPIC has launched a series of water-free highly concentrated formulas:

- Featherweight. So Concentrated! So Nice! is a concentrated slimming cream that can easily be reconstituted by adding an equal amount of water.
- Concentrated Foaming Power. By adding water at the last minute, you can make different foaming products: cleanser, shampoo, and more.

As far as sustainable innovation is concerned, SEPPIC Brazil showcased its Jugaad concept, featuring three minimalist detox body care products made from the same six ingredients (including two active ingredients) to which a new ingredient was added with a cold application process to obtain various sensory textures.

Regarding social responsibility, two formulas illustrating the company’s commitment to community projects were showcased:

- Responsibly Sourced Palm - AntiPollution Cream, formulated with active ingredients with Book&Claim RSPO certification.
- Purifying and Hydrating Cream - Inspired in France. Formulated with a “locavore” approach with ingredients sourced as near as possible to the company’s research laboratory in Castres, in southwest France.

SEPPIC also showcased Algae Spaghetti Make Up Remover, a biphasic gel with a green spaghetti shape, formulated with Royal Sugar Kelp and an extract from brown seaweed, among other ingredients. Also note, the Ecofriendly Deodorant, formulated as a sprayable white emulsion for a deo less polluting than an aerosol.

With these illustrative formulas, SEPPIC evidenced the wide array of opportunities now available to formulators to combine ethics and innovation!

Two new emollients ranges

At in-cosmetics 2016, SEPPIC also unveiled EMOSMART and EMOGREEN, two emollient ranges for cosmetic applications, produced by Total Special Fluids using a patented distillation and purification process, and commercialized by SEPPIC.

The two oil ranges (alkanes) are readily biodegradable are compatible with any kind of oils, easy-to-use, and sweep a broad sensory palette in term of textures.

Beyond its full biodegradability, the EMOGREEN range is 100% bio-sourced. It is therefore an alternative to silicone oils for consumers looking for naturalness and environmental respect.
