SEPPIC - SIMULGEL™ EPG

SIMULGEL™ EPG

Liquid Polymer for Responsible Concepts

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

It is an EO (ethylene oxide)-free, thickening-stablizing-texturizing polymer. Furthermore, it is synthesized by inverse emulsion polymerization. This is a solvent-free, energy efficient manufacturing process technology.

Suitable for more responsible concepts, SIMULGEL™ EPG imparts a soft and light skin feel.
