To anticipate the trend toward sustainability, the business line Care Specialties of Evonik Industries extended its current range of active ingredients with Tego Cosmo PGA, a polypeptide of the amino-acid L-glutamic acid produced by biotechnology.
Gamma Polyglutamic acid is a naturally occurring biopolymer present in fermented soybean. In cosmetics, its polyanionic character provides chelating properties for divalent cations, such as calcium and magnesium, supporting their solubilization, delivery andbioavailabilty.
This ingredient is also known as a film-former with good moisturizing properties. More info: www.evonik.com
