Evonik is establishing a new business segment named Botanicals & Natural Actives within the Nutrition & Care division. This brings together various legacy products and recent acquisitions to meet demand for botanical extracts and natural actives. These include:

* Argentine firm Novachem, which offers natural and sustainable active ingredients for skin and hair care applications

* Swiss sustainable botanicals pioneer Botanica

* Alkion Biopharma, a specialist in biotechnologically developed cosmetic active ingredients

* Wilshire, a supplier of phytochemicals

* Evonik’s Tego business, including Tego Turmerone natural plant extract, Tego Enlight natural brightening blend and Tego Natural Betaine, a natural amino acid derivative for skin

“By bringing together sustainable sourcing, strong biotech processes and scientific claim substantiation with our recently established Skin Institute, our customers benefit from high performance, sustainable speciality botanical ingredients that allow them to differentiate in the market,” said Yann d’Hervé, head of the Care Solutions business line.
