SEPPIC wins the top prize for the most innovative functional ingredient at the In-Cosmetics Asia 2016 trade show, for EMOGREEN™, a range of alternative emollients to silicone oils that are natural, biodegradable, and appealing to the touch.
This award was bestowed by a panel of cosmetics experts. It recognizes a functional ingredient offering a major innovation in cosmetics applications that has been on the market for 6 months.
Thanks to its inert chemical structure, EMOGREEN™, which is of vegetal origin, is suitable for a broad range of applications, from skin and hair care to makeup, sunscreen and cleansing… They can be formulated under extreme conditions, for example in rich and active formulations, high to low pH. Compatible with all kinds of oils and easy to use, EMOGREEN™ offers a unique texture.
EMOGREEN™, in addition to being perfectly biodegradable, is 100% biosourced. It can be used as alternative to silicone oils for consumers who are looking for more natural and eco-friendly products.
Produced by Total Special Fluids using a patented distillation and purification process and sold by SEPPIC, this range responds to the highest standards of purity.
Nelly Michel, who is the head of the SEPPIC Business Unit Beauty Care, stated: “This award is a source of pride for SEPPIC and illustrates our long-term, responsible approach to providing our customers and consumers with products that meet their environmental and health requirements. This range makes it possible to imagine more environmentally friendly beauty products that offer a unique sensory experience."
