Evonik achieved cosmetic GMP (ISO 22716) confirmation for North American sites. With the confirmation of another three facilities in Hopewell, Janesville and Mapleton, Evonik raises the number of cosmetic GMP certified production sites to 10. ISO 22716 refers to the manufacturing process of cosmetics as well as raw materials. It includes guidelines for quality-related aspects of a product. This confirmation guarantees that Evonik focuses on the appropriate principles and methods during production, controlling, storage and distribution. In addition to the European facilities, which received accreditation in 2012, the production sites in NAFTA fulfilled the guidelines of GMP.
The company recently launched a new concept for men, complete with formulations.
