SEPINEO™ P 600 is an effective and versatile polymer at the forefront of dermopharmaceutical innovation

By Cathrine Bulcourt, Marketing Manager, Liquid & Semi-solid forms, SEPPIC

SEPINEO™ P 600 is a 3-in-1 polymer: thickener, emulsifier and stabilising agent. It is a ready-to-use product designed for gel or cream formulations and is extremely easy to implement. This pre-neutralised liquid polymer acts in a wide pH range (3-11) and has accordingly excellent compatibility with numerous commonly used APIs and common pharmaceutical ingredients such as alcohol, propylene glycol, glycerine, etc.

Depending on the treated disease and the active ingredients used, it adapts to all pharmaceutical galenics: gel, gel cream, O/W emulsion, but also W/O emulsion, GELTRAP™,  a new patented SEPPIC concept, or “gel in oil” with the advantage of a W/O process comfortable to the touch and based on an industrial process which consumes less energy. Its stabilising capacities, its compatibilities and properties as a texture agent make this polymer an indisputable ally to improve the effectiveness of topical treatments by enabling

- the combination of different APIs
- improved patient compliance

With SEPINEO™ P 600, dermatology textures compare favourably to cosmetic textures.

Application areas
SEPINEO™ P 600 is easy to use as it does not require neutralisation or rehydration when new gels, creams, simple or multiple emulsions are developed for:


  • Formulas for topical application with drug status
  • Formulas with high solvent contents, anhydrous formulas, formulas with rich oil phase
  • Products composed of heat- or water-sensitive ingredients
