Demonstrate the qualities of our cosmetic ingredients

Since 1996, Sophim has been producing healthy and natural cosmetic ingredients, and especially squalane, obtained from rigorously selected raw materials. We are committed to the continuous improvement of our processes, in order to contribute to an ever greener and more sustainable cosmetics industry. Whenever possible, we favour upcycling. PHYTOSQUALAN and INSAPOLIVE, for example, are produced from a co-product of the olive oil extraction process, which makes it possible to reduce agricultural pressure, preserve water resources and reduce the amount of inputs into the soil.


Our success is based on strong commitments and on our ability to demonstrate the quality of our ingredients in numerous cosmetic products, used daily by consumers. By integrating our references into formulations, we enhance our know-how. We are also committed to continuous learning and quality improvement.

With this in mind, we invite you to discover Sunset Sorbet, a soothing, moisturising and refreshing face mask.

The challenges associated with the formulation of our soothing mask

With the pandemic, wearing a mask has become a reflex in many countries around the world. But wearing this protection against viruses and bacteria for hours ends up having consequences for the skin. Irritations can appear, the skin dries out and the lipid barrier can be damaged by friction, heat or lack of air circulation. 

Our objective was simple: to design a soothing mask that would provide hydration, freshness and well-being. Applied at the end of the day, it nourishes, protects and soothes the skin in just ten minutes.

Meeting consumer expectations

Our formula heads towards ever more sensorial cosmetics. The Sunset Sorbet mask has a dry feel, the oils add softness, and the shea olein provides a particularly pleasant enveloping sensation. 

Simplicity of use is essential. Sunset Sorbet is suitable for all skin types and can be easily washed off with clear water.

With Sophim, the beauty routine becomes a moment of daily pleasure, to indulge yourself and forget the stress of the day.

Offering an eco-responsible cosmetic solution

Consumers are demanding healthier and more natural cosmetic products with clear formulations. Sunset Sorbet therefore integrates natural ingredients of plant origin, produced in strict accordance with the environment. We have also chosen a simple formulation, with a limited number of ingredients.

We are thus demonstrating that in cosmetics, simplicity meets the challenges of quality, sensoriality and respect for the environment.

The key ingredients of our moisturising mask

Sunset Sorbet features several references from the range of ingredients developed and marketed by Sophim.

BIOPHYTOSEBUM®, an active emollient of plant origin

Composed of olive esters and unsaponifiables, and enriched with squalene, BIOPHYTOSEBUM offers a sensory alternative to silicon. This emollient has many properties: it contributes to the restoration of the lipid barrier, prevents water loss, restores skin suppleness and has moisturising properties.

Its qualities make it an ideal ingredient for a face mask. It penetrates quickly thanks to its strong affinity with the skin. Easy to spread, it contributes to the development of textures that are both silky and soft, for a dry feel that is much appreciated at the time of application.


Cucumber seed oil, rich in linoleic acid

Light and rich in fatty acids, cucumber seed oil keeps the skin soft, healthy and well hydrated. It is known for its refreshing, astringent and protective properties.

Thanks to the vitamins and antioxidants it contains, it helps fight free radicals and revitalise mature skin. 

Its moisturising power makes it a cosmetic oil suitable for dry skin. Very slightly comedogenic, it can also be applied to acne-prone skins.

Argan oil, to restore the skin’s elasticity

Rich in vitamin E, Omega-6 and Omega-9, argan oil is renowned for its moisturising properties. It firms up the skin and helps it regain its elasticity, while protecting it against external aggressions.

Argan oil also restores the hydrolipidic film, helps to fight the visible signs of skin ageing and activates cell regeneration.

Shea olein, to beautify and regenerate the skin

Obtained from shea butter, shea olein is renowned for its numerous cosmetic virtues. Soothing, repairing and healing, this vegetable oil is naturally rich in vitamin E and carotenoids. It is indicated for sensitive, dry or dehydrated skin.

Its dry and fluid touch contributes to the sensoriality of the Sunset Sorbet hydrating and soothing mask. It gives the skin a silky texture.
