Unexpected Suncare

Explore unique sensory innovations with Gattefossé


Suncare Gattefossé Smile



Sensory challenge in suncare


The sensoriality of sunscreens is a major concern and a challenge for formulators.

Addition of UV filters to cosmetics brings greasiness and stickiness that are difficult to hide and unpleasant to the consumer. Despite awareness of the importance of daily UV protection, sunscreens are underused as regards quantity applied and frequency of application.

Bi-Gel Technology


Bi-Oil technology by Gattefossé


Emulfree® Line allows the creation of a unique structure, called a bi-gel, with innovative technical and sensorial properties. A bi-gel is a dispersion of an oily network within an aqueous gel, stabilized by a liquid surfactantfree ingredient: Emulfree®. This lipid-based system is a synergistic association of ethylcellulose with emollients that stabilizes the oil-water interface and allows the creation of refreshing, quick-break textures using a cold process.
