Gold award for Best Functional Ingredient goes to RHEANCE® One

RHEANCE® One is both natural and powerful—a successful combination that won Evonik the gold medal award for Best Functional Ingredient at incosmetics global 2018.

Presented for the first time in Amsterdam, this substance from the glycolipid family can be used for cleaning skin and hair gently yet effectively. This also makes it suitable for challenging skin types.

RHEANCE® One is produced via fermentation—with sugar as the sole source of carbohydrates. Production does not require the addition of any tropical oils. This gives the product the advantage of being both natural and sustainable. Its positive application properties include a dense, creamy foam and a pleasant, natural feel on the skin. The glycolipid is completely biodegradable and offers extremely good environmental compatibility.

The jury for the Innovation Zone Best Ingredients Awards at incosmetics global 2018 recognized that RHEANCE® does an outstanding job of meeting the demands of innovative science and product properties that add value for manufacturers and end consumers.

For Evonik, this is just the beginning: “Now we’re going to collaborate with our customers to work out the full scope of applications for RHEANCE® One,” said Dr. Tammo Boinowitz, the head of Evonik’s Personal Care Business Line. “We’re already planning to expand this new technology platform.”
