Seppic won the prize for the most sustainable ingredient at the New York Society of Cosmetics Chemists (NYSCC) symposium on “The Future of Sustainability” on February 15th, 2017, with Emogreen, its range of plant-based emollients designed as an alternative to silicone oils.
“Thanks to its inert chemical structure, the range is suitable for a broad range of applications, from skin and hair care to make-up, sunscreen and cleansing. It can be formulated under extreme conditions, for example in rich and active formulations, with high to low pH,” claimed Seppic.
In addition to being biodegradable, Emogreen is 100% biosourced from crude palm oil with a Mass Balance sustainability certification. “Produced by Total Special Fluids using a patented distillation and purification process, and marketed by Seppic, this range meets the highest standards of purity,” added the company.
“This new generation of sustainable emollients shows our commitment to provide customers with specialty ingredients with strong benefits for end-consumers and for the environment. They can also be used as alternatives to volatile silicones or mineral oil,” highlighted Olivier Peyrot, Seppic’s Beauty Care Sales Manager in North America.
