SEPPIC wins the COSMETAGORA 2014 Formulation Prize

SEPPIC, a subsidiary of the Air Liquide group, won first prize in this year’s COSMETAGORA Formulation Competition with its "Melting Caramel Butter" (Beurre Caramel fondant) concept. This competition, organized for the first time by La Société Française de Cosmétique (SFC), awards prizes for the most creative formula in terms of concept and texture.

The COSMETAGORA 2014 Formulation Prize is the crowning achievement of SEPPIC’s know-how and its expertise in Healthcare Specialty Ingredients. With three customers service laboratories worldwide and two R&D centers in France (SEPPIC-Castres, BotechMarine-Pontrieux), SEPPIC stays abreast of the trends in order to come up with novel ideas for beauty products and a wide array of sensorial properties.

Thanks to its amazing texture, SEPPIC caramel butter melts smoothly when it is applied, leaving a soft and powdery finish.

This refreshing and luxurious formulation for the body is composed of three proprietary active ingredients (AQUAXYL, SEPILIFT DPHP, JUVENESSENCE AD) and emulsifiers of plant origin (MONTANOV L and MONTANOV 14) in combination with a stabilizing thickener (SIMULGEL INS 100). It imparts a nourishing, moisturizing, and firming effect.

With its innovative appearance, unique texture and original sensorial profile, the SEPPIC formula (no. EU07261A) enthralled the panel of experts in the beauty field judging the Cosmetagora competition.

Riva Brinet, Head of Personal Care Marketing in Europe, states: "This deluxe body cream is inspired by the "Food Mania" trend, which is being seen in the current keen interest in cooking shows or cooking courses. It brings the same pleasures to the skin as food does to the body."
