ESSEN, GERMANY: Evonik’s endeavour to build a new production facility for cosmetics and consumer goods in America in Sao Paulo, Brazil is moving ahead rapidly. The mid-double-digit million euro investment will go on stream 2014 and will create around 80 new jobs in total. Evonik already supplies customers in this region through its service and logistics centre in Guarulhos, Brazil. Evonik’s move to enlarge its production footprint for personal care and household care ingredients is spurred by important megatrends.

In line with the health and well-being megatrend Evonik’s customers are benefitting from the increasing importance that end consumers attach around the globe to their personal appearance and soundness. The product portfolio that Evonik plans to manufacture locally is based on renewable resources which fit nicely with consumers’ request for a higher level of sustainability in the production of consumer goods.

“The total production capacity of around 50,000 metric tonne per annum is spread across different technologies to be able to offer a broad portfolio of locally manufactured products to our customers in the personal care and household care industries. The portfolio will include specialty surfactants, conditioning agents, emollients, emulsifiers, thickeners and fabric softening actives amongst others,” explained Patrik Wohlhauser, Member of Executive Board and responsible for South America, Evonik.
