Filmexel: The excellence of a natural, protective and lifting film


SILAB proposes FILMEXEL to the worldwide cosmetic market, the most innovative and multifunctional natural film-forming active ingredient. FILMEXEL offers the widest range of benefits - PROTECTIVE / LIFTING / SENSORIAL - to manufacturers and end-users in a variety of formulas: gel, emulsified gel, tissue masks, serum, foundation, etc.

Designed from the IBPN technology, a proprietary technology of interpenetrating biopolymer network, FILMEXEL forms a resistant, flexible and non-occlusive film on the skin, mimicking its properties and functions.

FILMEXEL is a natural biopolymer composed of galactomannans of Caesalpinia spinosa and sulfated galactans of Kappaphycus alvarezii, providing both outstanding biomechanical properties and superior film-forming capacities never obtained with a simple mixture of individual biopolymers.

  • FILMEXEL, protective effect. Thanks to its dense meshwork, it acts as a natural barrier against harmful exogenous agents (particulate matter, allergens, irritants).
  • FILMEXEL, lifting benefit. Its tensor effect is instantly visible, and its smoothing and anti-wrinkle efficacy is proven in various formulas, at different doses.
  • FILMEXEL, perceptible efficacy. A more radiant complexion and a more attractive face are visible from the first applications. Incorporated into a foundation, it prolongs its wear and creates a genuine lifting sensation.

The multifunctional nature of FILMEXEL has also been confirmed by the results of two consumer tests conducted in Europe and Asia. FILMEXEL acts as a genuine beauty booster by improving the attractiveness of the faces of young subjects and the wrinkled appearance of mature skin.

FILMEXEL stands out as a universal skin care.

With its second-skin and anti-ageing benefits, FILMEXEL is recommended for all face and body care, and make-up products.
