Synopsis

SOPHIM produces natural ingredients for cosmetics and in particular olive squalane which is its blockbuster.

Squalene is the main antioxidant in olive oil. Present in human sebum, squalane has an irreplaceable compatibility with the skin, explaining its success in cosmetics since the 1950s.

Being a leader in the production of olive oil and also in its refining, Spain is the main source of squalene in the world.

This is the reason for our factory in Almería, close to the olive oil producers and refiners of Andalusia, in which we treat 7,000 t / year of “olive fatty acids”.

Through our Spanish distributor DISTRIBUTIES, SOPHIM sells to prestigious clients such as PUIG or RNB (Mercadona).

Squalene is extracted from residues of physical refining of olive oil, “no feed, no food”. With the co-products valued in second generation biodiesel, it is a success for the protection of the environment and a circular economy model.

For R&D, SOPHIM participates in a European project IRODDI, with the Institute of Fat.

SOPHIM has multiple implications with Spain that have made it successful. Today we are investing in Spain for new developments.
