SEPIFINE™ BB

The Eco-ethical Texturizing Agent

A next generation, 100% biosourced texturizing agent, SEPIFINETM BB is an ethical alternative to synthetic texturizing powders while ensuring high sensory and mat finish in all skin care and make-up applications.

Characteristics

SEPPIC launches its first biodegradable texturizing powder, SEPIFINE™ BB, sourced from Brazilian babassu.  

New starch based ingredient, this natural powder constitutes a  high-performing alternative to traditional synthetic texturing agents while ensuring responsible outsourcing.

A Fine and ultra-light powder, SEPIFINE™ BB displays high capacity in oil absorption and offers a pleasant mattifying effect. SEPIFINE™ BB guarantees equally high sensorial sensations compared to synthetic powders : a soft, sliding and velvet touch for natural formulas.

Major advantage of SEPIFINE™ BB is its versatility : it can be incorporated in various cosmetic preparations: make-up, skin care, sunscreens.

  • By-product of babassu oil harvesting, the inner membrane (flesh of the nut) is dried-up and ground
