SEPINEO™ DERM

SEPINEO™ DERM: thickening, stabilizing and texturizing agent
Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer

SEPINEO™ DERM is an innovative polymer with thickening, stabilizing and texturizing properties.

A simple and safe polymer

SEPINEO™ DERM is a concentrated polymer in ready-to-use powder form.
It is pre-neutralized and stable over a pH ranging from 3 to 12.

Controlled quality

SEPINEO™ DERM is a high-quality product suited for medical devices. This product is well-tolerated by the human vaginal and gingival epithelium.

Benefits for the consumer

Varied and innovative textures

SEPINEO™ DERM can be used to obtain a wide variety of textures: sprays, lotions, thick creams... It can be used to formulate gels, cream-gels, O/W emulsions and Geltrap™ W/O emulsions or even foams, patches, etc.

SEPINEO™ DERM can be used to obtain formulas with a highly appreciated sensory profile. The final products are fresh, smooth and non-sticky. Furthermore, SEPINEO™ DERM provides the finished product a rheofluidifying profile, making it easy to spread.

SEPINEO™ DERM is compatible with many active ingredients, solvents and fatty phases.

Benefits for the formulator

A simple and flexible process

SEPINEO™ DERM is a pre-neutralised powder and therefore does not require a neutralisation step before use.

It is dispersible in aqueous or fatty phases and can be mixed equally well in a hot or cold process.

SEPINEO™ DERM is UV resistant, allowing the use of transparent or clear packaging without compromising the formula’s stability.

A very low % of use

As a concentrated polymer, SEPINEO™ DERM is effective at very low concentrations:

  • 0.2% to 3% for its emulsifying and stabilizing action
  • 0.3% to 3% for its thickening action

Applications

SEPINEO™ DERM is a multifunctional polymer that can be used in hygiene products and for clear aqueous or anhydrous gels.

It is designed for medical devices to be applied to the following topical areas: skin and vaginal, anal and oral mucosa.
