When upcycling opportunities meet care


With ECOHANCE® Care PS3 Evonik offers a versatilely applicable emulsifier based on an upcycled residue from the olive oil production. A product providing excellent emulsification performance and capable to boost the sustainability of your formulation.

An Eco-Optimized Transformation Journey Of Olive  

The first product of the ECOHANCE® program is the 100% olive based O/W emulsifier ECOHANCE® Care PS3. The olives mainly come from the Mediterranean region, in particular from Spain, Italy and Greece. The supply chain is traceable up to the oil mills,  which are all located in the EU. However, Instead of using edible olive oil as a feedstock, ECOHANCE® Care PS3 is fully based on a second generation feedstock: a post-industrial residue from the olive oil refinery. Next to an excellent emulsification performance, the emulsifier is therefore not only bio-based but offers additional sustainability features which go beyond.

Producing it by upcycling of a second generation feedstock, the emulsifier is sourced landless and fully deforestation-free. This approach not only allows a sourcing without any competition to food or feed crops but also a carbon footprint reduction by 66% in comparison to a RSPO palm oil based production.
