[English] Sustainable Solutions

Sustainability is not just about the visuals and the packaging, but also about the heart of the product and its ingredients. Take the tour with us; from biodegradable glitters, to a 100% renewable algae extract, cold processable solutions and more! Paired with the UN Sustainability Goals, we will try to make this journey as easy and accessible as we can for you.

Low Carbon Footprint

What does carbon footprint actually mean? The dictionary definition is “the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere as a result of the activities of a particular individual, organisation or community.”

The Personal Care and Cosmetics industry is making significant progress towards a more sustainable world. However, the macro environmental trends show that formulators can do more (GCI Magazine, 2020). On behalf of Evonik, Surfachem Deutschland distribute the TEGOSOFT® range. The below TEGOSOFT® types are COSMOS approved, available in RSPO MB and have a natural origin index of 1.0 (ISO 16128)


Biology and bacteria is the wave of the future for the Personal Care and Cosmetics industry (Cosmetics Design). By breaking down substances via bacteria, yeast, or other microorganisms, formulators are able to deliver a sustainable ingredient.

Ceramide III EP MB, from Evonik, is an easy to process blend of Ceramide III. Based on vegetable raw materials and yeast fermented using biotechnology, Ceramide III EP MB is an active, skincare ingredient that strengthens the barrier and supports dry skin recovery.


According to Cosmetics Business, consumers want multi-benefit, efficacious products that make their lives simpler, whilst also not negatively impacting the environment with their purchasing decisions.
Why do consumers want multi-functional products and ingredients?

  • Saving time: increasingly speedy world necessitates increasingly speedy products.
  • Space: less bag space when travelling.
  • In light of sustainability; one product can have multiple uses.

On behalf of Evonik, Surfachem Deutschland distributes multifunctional ingredients for the Cosmetics industry.

  • TEGO® REMO 95 MB – natural-based thickener with emollient properties
  • RHEANCE ONE® – Cleansing, solubilising and foaming additive for gentle cleansing formulations.
