SNF, headquartered in Andrézieux, France, is a leading global producer of water-soluble polymers with primary manufacturing sites in France, USA, and China. Over the last 40 years, SNF has developed expertise in polymer chemistries designed for specialty markets, such as personal care and cosmetics.
SNF makes the best use of the newest polymerization technologies for synthesizing and manufacturing anionic, cationic, amphoteric, and nonionic polymers. As an added advantage, SNF is back-integrated in the most strategic monomers to best serve our customers regarding product costs, quality, and supply.
This know-how in monomers, polymer design, and industrial process applications allows SNF to react and innovate according to changing trends and customer needs within the Personal Care market.
At In-Cosmetics® Global 2019 in Paris, SNF launched a new multi-functional inverse emulsion, FLOCARE™ NAT 132. This polymer is 67% naturally derived, according to ISO 16128, and will reduce carbon footprint of skin care formulations due to cold processability by consuming less energy and water during the formulation process. Efficient at low concentrations, FLOCARE™ NAT 132 offers fresh sensation during application and non-greasy softness while being a more sustainable solution to cream gel formulations.
