Last week, Evonik reinforced its position as a sustainable specialties partner for the personal care and cleaning industry by winning the 2020 Henkel Sustainable Award for the second straight year.

Evonik’s RHEANCE® One platform of green biosurfactants was recognized in the Beauty Care category for sustainability at the14th Annual Henkel Awards, which were announced at a gala virtual event during last week’s American Cleaning Industry (ACI) Annual Meeting. Last year, Evonik also won the Henkel Sustainability Award for a novel conditioner with excellent biodegradability that is sourced from natural, renewable materials.

The improvement of human life is at the centre of Evonik’s Nutrition & Care division. As the home of the Company’s biotechnology portfolio, the development of advanced biomaterials that utilize more sustainable manufacturing and sourcing processes is a core driver of innovation and growth. The Care Solutions business line of Evonik continues to demonstrate these sustainability principles with the development of differentiated products such as RHEANCE® One.

Henkel also awarded Evonik second place for Best Supply Performance and Best Innovation Contributor.

“We are honored to serve as a long-term partner to Henkel and other customers who share our commitment to leverage innovative solutions like RHEANCE® One in order to develop a more sustainable market and better performing products,” said Yann d'Hervé, head of Evonik’s Care Solutions business line.

RHEANCE® One is a glycolipid-based platform of green biosurfactants designed for use in rinse off applications that is 100% biodegradable, has excellent foaming and cleansing properties, and is pleasant and mild to the skin. Manufactured with an all-natural, biotechnological process, RHEANCE® One allows customers to create high-performance beauty and personal care products that adhere to the highest standards for sustainability.

Evonik’s portfolio of naturally derived, high-performance green biosurfactants also includes REWOFERM®SL, which is designed for use with household cleaning and other applications.
