FILMEXEL® New efficacy for protective and long lasting performance benefits

(Posted on 26/09/17)

FILMEXEL® from Silab, a world leader in engineering active ingredients, is an innovative and multifunctional natural film-forming active ingredient for the cosmetics industry.

FILMEXEL offers a wide range of benefits being protective, lifting and sensorial and can be found in a variety of applications including gels, emulsified gels, tissue masks, serums, liquids and powder foundations.

Since its launch, research work on FILMEXEL has continued and additional efficacy tests on the capacity of the active ingredient have recently been carried out. Results show it now provides further skin protection from external aggressors, particularly from particulate matter on the altered skin, heavy metals and bacteria (s.aureus).

Exclusively supplied by Cornelius in the UK, FILMEXEL acts as a natural ‘second skin’ layer to protect against harmful pollutants, allergens and irritants. It forms a resistant, flexible and non-occlusive film mimicking the properties and functions of the skin.

Further studies have been carried out on the benefits of including FILMEXEL in make-up products, as the active significantly prolongs the wear of a foundation during the day. The results indicate FILMEXEL’s capacity to improve the dispersibility of hydrophilic and lipophilic pigments in water-based formulations leads to better formula stabilisation and a more homogenous pigment distribution at the surface of the skin.
