Expanded Certified range

Evonik has substantially expanded its range of cosmetic ingredients certified in accordance with the standard of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil. Customers in the cosmetics industry now have available more than 50 certified palm-oil based raw materials, including several specialties.

“That corresponds to about 40 per cent of our sales volume for palm-oil based products,” explained Dr Tammo Boinowitz, head of Evonik’s Personal Care Business Line. All of Evonik’s Personal Care products based on pure palm or palm-kernel oil are already certified in Europe under the segregated supply chain model (RSPOSG). This was done despite the fact that supply of RSPO-certified palm-oil derivatives on the market still lags behind demand. 

“We want to support our customers in offering an increasing number of sustainable cosmetics products, in line with consumers’ wishes,” said Boinowitz.

Thanks to the introduction of the CAREtain system, which determines product-related sustainability parameters, these requirements are being taken into account already during the development phase. As a result, nearly 90 per cent of Evonik’s Personal Care products are now based on sustainable raw materials, and more than 50 per cent of these have been subjected to life cycle assessments. Over 80 per cent of the products make a significant contribution to resource efficiency within the supply chain and during use.
