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

FILMEXEL is a biomimetic film-forming active ingredient that is eco-designed using an innovative technology. This interpenetrating network of natural biopolymers forms a resistant, flexible and non-occlusive film on the skin, mimicking its properties and functions.


Green design: IBPN Technology

FILMEXEL is a natural biopolymer designed on the basis of a novel IBPN (Interpenetrating BioPolymer Network) technology, excluding exogenous chemicals in the production process.

More precisely, it is composed of an interpenetrating network of two polysaccharides derived from plant starting materials with traceable sourcing:

  • Galactomannans of Caesalpinia spinosa, a South American shrub considered as the “green gold of the Incas”
  • Sulfated galactans of Kappaphycus alvarezii, a warm water alga that grows in South East Asia.

This advanced network of two interpenetrating biopolymers provides 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.

FILMEXEL is the result of many years of research and technological optimization and forms on the surface of the skin a natural, protective and lifting film featured by high resistance, a powerful retraction force and excellent sensorial efficacy.

Widest range of cosmetic benefits

FILMEXEL offers the widest range of benefits (protective, lifting, sensorial) to manufacturers and end-users in many kinds of formulas (gel, emulsified gel, tissue-masks, serum, foundation):

  • 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.

Additionally, new ex vivo efficacy data also demonstrate the significant effect of FILMEXEL on shine and protection of hair in a context of urban pollution.

Preservative-free powder, FILMEXEL is easy to solubilize, patented and complies with worldwide cosmetic regulations.

It is an outstanding universal solution with multiple applications both in skin and hair care.
