Evonik, the preferred sustainable specialties partner for the personal care industry, is showcasing its latest innovations at the leading cosmetic tradeshow in-cosmetics Global in Barcelona, 28-30 March.

“When we innovate, we always put the customer at the center. Our customers are demanding more sustainable, high-performing solutions, and we are delighted to present these during this year’s in-cosmetics Global,” said Yann d'Hervé, head of Evonik's Care Solutions business line.

Guided by a Vision that puts sustainability, innovation and collaboration at its core, the Care Solutions business plays a critical role in the continued portfolio shift of Evonik’s life sciences division, Nutrition & Care, to System Solutions. These are multi-component offerings across products, technologies and services that are tailored to a unique customer need and often have proven sustainability benefits. The Nutrition & Care division aims to increase its share of System Solutions from 20 percent today to more than 50 percent by 2030.
