July 10, 2013

• GERMANY: Evonik Industries has opened a new innovation center for products for the cosmetics industry at its Goldschmidtstraße site in Essen. Some 90 employees of the Consumer Specialties business unit of Evonik will work in the innovation center, primarily for applications in the cosmetic industry.

“The new innovation center and its developments will further reinforce our competitive position in the growing global market for cosmetic products, with particular focus on the requirements of our customers,” said Klaus Engel, CEO.

The new center includes laboratories, office space and a separate workshop area available for cooperative projects with customers. Evonik has invested nearly €17 million in the building.

At the center’s opening, Evonik expanded its cooperation with the University of Duisburg-Essen with the sponsorship of a new junior professorship and funding for 10 new doctoral scholarships. The junior professorship in the department of chemistry  will focus primarily on macromolecular and interfacial chemistry.

Among other products, the unit manufactures cosmetic ingredients, emulsifiers, cosmetic oils, conditioners, and performance additives such as thickeners.
