Pharma grade Squalane

Sophiderm is a natural squalane (perhydrosqualene) from marine origin with highest purity.

It complies with the US and European Pharmacopeas.

This oil is a natural emollient, with a great affinity to the skin, being one of the main component of human sebum and the hydrolipidic film.

Thanks to Sophim’s high performance technology, Sophiderm is a very high purity squalane (GPC > 99%), without light components (such as pristane) that bring skin irritation.

It is a multifonctional emollient, with qualities for spreadability and skin absorption. It prevents moisture loss and restores the skin suppleness and flexibility.

Its soft, silky, non greasy touch, its total stability and complete skin compatibility makes it an irreplaceable base for high quality cosmetic emulsions.

Sophiderm is used as safe excipient in pharma and veterinary applications.

Sophiderm has the following properties:

  • Odorless, colorless, tasteless
  • Spreadability
  • Easiness to formulate
  • Skin absorption
  • Restore skin suppleness
  • Prevents the Trans-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL)
  • Soft feel
  • Non greasy feel
  • Total stability vs. oxidation
  • Full inocuity
