Evonik creates Botanicals & Natural Actives business segment

Evonik has established a Botanicals & Natural Actives segment within its Care Solutions business line.

As part of Evonik’s Nutrition & Care life sciences division, the new segment is led by Kai-Steffen Krannig.

The Botanicals & Natural Actives segment draws on expertise built up through legacy products together with a series of recent acquisitions.

These include the Argentinian biotechnology company Novachem acquired last year, which  added natural and sustainable active ingredients for skin and hair care applications to the Evonik portfolio.

It also includes Swiss sustainable botanicals pioneer Botanica, acquired by Evonik in 2021, which has long-term global partnerships with suppliers to provide local, organic and fairtrade plants, as well as raw materials from secondary products.

In addition, the new segment includes the portfolio of ALKION Biopharma (acquired 2016), which specializes in biotechnologically developed cosmetic active ingredients, and Wilshire (acquired 2021), a supplier of phytochemicals to the cosmetics industry.

Evonik’s legacy business including TEGO Turmerone natural plant extract, TEGO enlight natural brightening blend and TEGO Natural Betaine natural amino acid derivative for skin is also core to the new segment.

“Nature is an infinite source of inspiration for genuine beauty and wellbeing. We see great market opportunities waiting to be tapped. I look forward to even more collaboration and exchange of ideas with our customers,” said Krannig.

Evonik believes it can now offer customers highly differentiated biotech natural actives as standard products and tailor-made plant-inspired solutions for their beauty and personal care portfolios.

“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 specialty botanical ingredients that allow them to differentiate in the market,” said Yann d’Herve, head of the Care Solutions business line.
