Sophim is an independent company specialized in the production of oils and natural ingredients for cosmetic, personal care and pharma since 1988.
Located in Provence, South of France, we are dedicated to innovation, quality, eco-friendly manufacturing of non-greasy emollients with moisturizing and texturing properties.
Our integrated factory runs with modern equipments which allow offering focused solutions and high added value. Thanks to new techniques of esterification, distillation and hydrogenation, our factory has been awarded by the PRIX PIERRE POTIER for GREEN CHEMISTRY and SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT.
Quality control is also carried out by the latest instrumentations.


Since 1994, innovative research has been made for the development of an olive squalane extracted from olive oil fatty acids. This important program of Research and Development has led our company to a new range of oil-free, 100 % vegetable products: Insapolive®, Biophytosebum®, Phytowax® and Vegeline®. Those innovating products are protected by a patent.
The extension of the factory has also made Sophim an expert in esters, waxes, unsaponifiables, hydrogenated polyisosbutenes (low and high viscosity), vegetable butters and vegetable oils.
Today Sophim is the leader in the production of vegetable squalane (Phytosqualan), a unique molecule that is a key component of the human sebum and the hydrolipidic film. It is responsible for integrity and healthy appearance of the skin.
Most of our products are ECO-certified, Cosmos-certified, Organic-certified or Fair-Trade certified.
