SEPINOV™ WEO

Universal Powder Polymer for EO free concepts

SEPINOV™ WEO is a polymer derived from the Ecodesign development intended to reduce environmental impact, one of SEPPIC’s three CSR pillars.

It is a universal, EO (ethylene oxide)-free, thickening-stabilizing-texturizing polymer.

In the form of a concentrated powder, it has good resistance to electrolytes and imparts a light, satin-like skin feel.
