GLYCOLIPIDS BY EVONIK
RHEANCE® glycolipids lead a new era of all-natural ingredients that do not compromise on performance. Derived from nature to provide natural, pleasant sensations, combining excellent skin compatibility and powerful cleansing with unprecedented environmental compatibility.
A rasing interest
Consumers across the world are becoming more interested in all-natural products, as part of a healthier lifestyle and their perceptions that natural offerings are safer.
The plus factor: responsibility
Consumers are more closely evaluating companies’ environmental and social responsibility.
A noticable gap
A larger number of consumers want “green” products but have difficulty accessing products that truly deliver on environmental parameters.
Ecosystem services: Linking nature and people
The World Wildlife Fund’s “One Planet Perspective” encourages companies to
align their activities so that they are actively contributing to a healthy and resilient
planet for future generations:
• preserve natural capital
• produce more sustainably
• equitable resource governance
• redirect financial flows
• consume more wisely
Ingredients tracking „from farm to face“ can strengthen consumers confidence in the ingredients authenticity.

aquatic organisms and have low potential for bioaccumulation
