Seppic launches SEPIFINE™ BB (1) , a biodegradable and 100% biosourced texturizing powder derived from Brazilian babassu.
This starch-based ingredient provides a high-performance alternative to synthetic texturizing powders. It also responds to consumer expectations of raw materials that benefit our planet. SEPIFINE™ BB is fabricated using no GMOs and no preservatives and low impact solvents. The ethical sourcing of the babassu is validated by the “Origens Brasil” organization that assures the equitable sharing of economic resources between local communities throughout the supply chain.
SEPIFINE™ BB is water and oil dispersible with a primary function of texturizing agent for skin care and makeup applications. It is versatile for gel creams, emulsions, or powders. Its velvety skin sensation even improves the afterfeel of sun care lotions.
Improved oil absorption of SEPIFINE™ BB brings long term sebum control associated with specialty texturizing powders. Non oily and ultra light, it can be used across a broad range of beauty care formulations. This new ingredient can be used to formulate biodegradable finished products with high naturality, without losing the performance of traditional ingredients. SEPIFINE™ BB is a natural choice as the next generation of texturizing powders!
This product is a result of our partnership with Atina Ativos Naturais, who have created and marketed a range of natural products following the cradle to cradle format.
Courtney CLAY, product manager, stated: “SEPIFINE™ BB meets the growing demand for biodegradable texturizing powders without losing the performance of traditional sensory agents. Seppic’s expertise in sensory ingredients and engagement in sustainable chemistry has provided a product that reduces the global footprint and meets the requirements of today’s personal care consumer.”
