FILMEXEL® is composed of galactomannans from Caesalpinia spinosa, a South American shrub considered as the “green gold of the Incas”, and sulfated galactans from Kappaphycus alvarezii, a warm water alga that grows in South East Asia. The supply chains for these two natural raw materials are traceable.
Using a controlled water extraction method developed by the company over several decades, the two biopolymers were extracted and then interpenetrated with the IBPN technology® in order to boost the effect of their intrinsic qualities. This eco-design and chemical-free process results in an advanced network providing both outstanding biomechanical properties and superior film-forming capacities compared to those resulting from a simple mixture of individual biopolymers. Indeed, this targeted cross-linking technology creates a dense and tight meshwork providing the film with multiple and innovative benefits.
With its natural raw materials and environmentally friendly process, FILMEXEL® has a 100% natural origin content according to ISO 16128*. This highly concentrated preservative-free powder further limits the carbon footprint by reducing transport and storage volumes.
* This standard aims to harmonize the principles of natural cosmetics at the international level.
