Evonik unwraps sustainable baobab oil for natural formulations

Evonik has launched Ecohance Soft Baobab, a sustainable baobab oil sourced from the Sahel region of Ghana.

The ingredient is the latest addition to Evonik’s Ecohance programme, which offers circular solutions for the cosmetics industry.

The high-quality baobab oil is sourced in collaboration with the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification and the Great Green Wall Initiative.

Baobab trees grow on poor soil, and tolerate heat and drought, making them essential vegetation for the Sahel and helping to prevent desertification.

In addition, Ecohance Soft Baobab is approved by the FairWild Foundation, which certifies companies and products according to 11 principles and 29 criteria that address ecological, social and economic requirements for sustainable wild collection.

The wild harvest baobab fruits are traceable down to the collector.

“Sustainability drives us and collaboration defines us! Ecohance Soft Baobab is a perfect example of how we uphold our core values of environmental and social responsibility,” said Yann d'Hervé, head of Evonik's Care Solutions business line.

“We've partnered with strong allies to build a brand-new supply chain, which allows our cosmetic customers to meet the growing demand for sustainable, high-performing natural products,” he added.

The launch of Ecohance Soft Baobab follows the launch of Ecohance Care PS3, an emulsifier based entirely on olive oil residues, and Ecohance Remo XP, an eco-friendly multifunctional thickener.
