FSS Biopolymer Soy PF

Preserved with Leucidal Liquid


Tired of oily skin? The clogged pores, the over-drying, the constant upkeep? The key to a low maintenance cosmetic regimen is eliminating the root of these time consuming problems.

There are three common ways products address sebum:

1) Strip the skin with alcohol, resulting in a rebound effect that causes the skin to go into sebum producing overdrive

2) Powder absorption, resulting in a less oily aesthetic, but clumped make up and clogged pores, yuck!

3) Biochemically blocking the formation of sebum on the skin, leaving the skin dried and unattractive.

Our skin and scalp naturally produce sebum which is known to clog pores and cause build-up on our face and in our hair. Excess oil causes hair to lack luster and skin to appear greasy. Sebum also causes the color of foundation and other make-up to shift over time. The best way to combat these problems is by controlling the production of oil, not by ridding the skin of sebum. Sebum provides the skin with a protective barrier, functioning as a film former to seal in moisture.


FSS Biopolymer Soy PF is a modified protein with a lipid moiety that disrupts the surface tension of sebum on the skin by naturally binding to excess sebum.The product combines the properties of oil absorbency in a water-dispersible polymer helping reduce the appearance of sebum on the skin and simultaneously preventing dry skin. FSS Biopolymer Soy PF contains a water soluble backbone that acts as a film former which causes the polymer to plate out on the skin. The alkyl sulfonate moieties change the contact angle of the sebum that is present on the skin. This change forces the sebum to exist as distinct droplets instead of as a film. The inclusion of soy provides conditioning and moisture retention benefits to keep the skin from becoming overly dry.


FSS Biopolymer Soy PF is a game changer; this product capitalizes on the health benefits of soy protein while a sebum controlling agent changes the contact angle of the sebum on the skin. FSS Biopolymer Soy PF is a modified protein with a lipid moiety that disrupts the surface tension of sebum on the skin by naturally binding to excess sebum. FSS Biopolymer Soy PF can be used as an ingredient in various cosmetic and personal care products for sebum control and enhancing brand differentiation.
