Evonik begins commercial-scale ceramides production

Evonik has started manufacturing commercial quantities of ceramides at its Dossenheim site near Heidelberg in Germany.

Ceramides are a special class of lipids that transport cosmetic active ingredients to the correct layers of the skin.

They are used in a growing number of applications in skin care, hair care, sun care, colour cosmetics, as well as advanced food additives and animal care.

Evonik said the move bolsters the German company’s position as a leading provider of ceramide system solutions.

“Expanding our in-house production capacity for ceramides enables us to meet the demand of our strategic customers who have minimum volume commitments and very long-term agreements with us,” added Johann-Caspar Gammelin, head of the Nutrition & Care division.

“We are also in a strong position to supply other customers with the flexibility and security they need.”
