Rethinking the Nature of Cosmetics


With the introduction of RHEANCE® One, the first ever glycolipids product, Evonik opens up a new frontier in all-natural cosmetic raw materials that offer both gentle, and effective skin and hair cleansing. As a compound made up of sugar and fatty acids, glycolipids can be found in many instances throughout nature.

“Naturalness and sustainability are very popular with today’s cosmetics consumers and, consequently, with cosmetics manufacturers as well as they look to develop products that meet this growing consumer requirement. In RHEANCE® One we now have a new cleansing substance in our portfolio, which not only is 100 percent based on renewable raw materials, but is also manufactured using a fermentation process,” explains Dr. Tammo Boinowitz, the head of Evonik’s Personal Care Business Line. This innovation developed by Evonik enables the production of glycolipids completely based on natural plant sugars, avoiding the use of tropical oils.

“RHEANCE® One is a unique combination of naturalness and high performance,” says Boinowitz. In skin, hair and oral care products, RHEANCE® One ensures effective yet gentle cleansing – and is ideally suited for even the most demanding skin types. The glycolipids stand out for generating a dense, creamy foam and having a pleasant, natural skin feel. Furthermore, they are able to solubilize fragrances and essential oils with remarkable efficiency. The unique profile characteristics of RHEANCE® One is completed by the fact that it is fully biodegradable and offers extremely good environmental compatibility.
