Clean solubilizers for your fragrances!

October 14, 2020

Did you know that for consumers, perfume is the # 1 purchasing factor? [1]

Fragrances are added in beauty products to provide a pleasant smell (also by hiding other ingredients odors). They can also be an integral part of the product, when the smell suggests the benefits (a fresh scent in cleaning products or in oral care), or even the main purpose of a product (when the goal is to perfume ourselves with it).

Challenge: solubilizing fragrances with clean solubilizers

It is often tricky to incorporate oily fragrances into the water phase without using polysorbates, ethoxylated ingredients.

Thanks to Seppic’s plant-based chemistry expertise, here are two plant derived solubilizers with a natural origin content of 100%! [2]


SEPICLEAR™ G7 is a powerful concentrated non-ionic solubilizer with no foaming properties.

Here are few suggestions:

Enhance your fragrance intensity and lasting power with GELTRAP™!

To offer an alternative to traditional alcoholic sprays, fragrance applications are diversifying: perfume roll-ons, sticks, balms, gels, wipes, and even jelly cushions.

Multiple benefits: Convenience during application, avoiding skin dryness due to alcohol, and sometimes new formats can even increase the olfactive intensity.

That is what we see with our GELTRAP™ Gel-in-oil technology (opens new window) with EASYNOV™: when using 10% fragrance inside this cream, the olfactive intensity was higher, immediately and 5 hours after application, than the regular hydroalcoholic perfume format.
