Evonik unveils biotech-based vegan collagen ingredient

Evonik has launched Vecollage Fortify L, a vegan collagen for the beauty and personal care market said to be identical to collagen in the skin.

Vecollage Fortify L was developed in partnership with the company Modern Meadow Inc., which specializes in fermentation-based protein development.

It provides dual benefits to fortify collagen in the skin by preventing age-related degradation and stimulating the skin’s own collagen production.

Evonik says the new ingredient leverages its competencies in biotechnology, collagen, and skin care to meet the demand for vegan collagen for applications such as anti-ageing and hydrating creams.

By using a system solutions approach that combines an innovative product with expertise in skin biology, Evonik has unveiled the effect of recombinant collagen on the dermis, the middle layer of the skin.

The German firm says the launch of Vecollage Fortify L brings Evonik a step closer to generating a platform of non-animal and sustainable collagen.

This platform will consist of several types of vegan collagen developed by Evonik and together with partners and will cement the company’s position as a prominent player in biotechnology-based active ingredients.

“The future of skincare is all about biotech-based collagen! Brand owners can now offer consumers sustainably sourced, skin-identical collagen. This true hero ingredient clearly shows how sustainability drives us and collaboration defines us,” said Yann d'Hervé, head of Evonik's Care Solutions business line.
