Evonik's two new production facilities for cosmetic ingredients in China and Brazil were just certified in accordance with the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) standard. Evonik processes derivatives of palm oil and palm kernel oil, among other substances.
As a member of the RSPO, Evonik advocates the use of sustainability produced palm oil in the supply chain. Evonik's first production sites in Essen and Steinau became certified in 2013.
"We are committed to the highest environmental and social standards and want to support our customers with reaching their own sustainability goals," said Dr. Tammo Boinowitz, head of the personal care business line at Evonik.
