Expert in the manufacturing of natural ingredients for Cosmetics, and with its expertise in fat-making processes, SOPHIM has developed a 100% vegetable alternative, to petroleum jelly, petrolatum, and other paraffins; an alternative choice for formulators in the development of more natural formulas and with multiple benefits for the skin.
VEGELINE is recommended as a natural emollient for facial and body care formulas, as a moisturising and texturing agent in lipsticks and lip balms, as a nourishing base in hair care products; it provides water resistance to sun screen products and after-sun care, and is used as a texturing agent in make-up products.
VEGELINE is a vegetal alternative to vaseline, non-irritant, non-comedogenic, having a great affinity with the skin, without residual stickiness.
VEGELINE is declined in two grades, VEGELINE 65 and VEGELINE 70, for two melting ranges, in order to offer an optimal choice for your formulations.
Known for more than 100 years, Vaseline occupies a prominent place in the list of cosmetic ingredients. Its chemical nature and its colloidal microstructure give it multiple properties including healing, moisturising, protective, emollient, etc.
Vaseline is a purified mixture of long-chain saturated hydrocarbons. Its chemical and physiological inertia makes it a multifunctional ingredient, moreover a very good carrier of active ingredients. Vaseline is inert, and therefore completely compatible regardless of the active ingredient. Vaseline-based ointments are recognised as one of the best active release systems in terms of efficacy.
Its hydrophobic character is responsible for its occlusive property. Used on dry skin, it helps to prevent insensible water losses, by creating a protective layer under the surface of the skin. By blocking moisture, Vaseline helps skin regenerate.
Vaseline is present in a large number of cosmetic products: facial care formulations, body care, as well as in make-up products, and hair care formulas. In all these cosmetic formulas, its texture is essential. It improves the visual appearance, touch, ease of spreading of the product, and also its ability to give shine to the hair. Because of these properties, it is also very much used in sports.
