A vegan collagen derived from biotechnology

Evonik has launched Vecollage Fortify L, a new vegan collagen for the beauty and personal care market, identical to skin collagen, according to the specialty chemicals supplier. This active ingredient meets the demand for vegan collagen, particularly for anti-aging and moisturizing creams.

"The future of skincare is biotech-derived collagen! Brand owners can now offer consumers skin-identical collagen from a sustainable source."said Yann d'Hervé, Head of Evonik's Care Solutions business sector.

For decades, collagen has been a sought-after ingredient in cosmetics and dermatology for its ability to improve skin firmness, elasticity and hydration. Consumers are increasingly looking for ethical and sustainable alternatives to collagen traditionally derived from animal and marine sources, while brands are concerned about security of supply issues. According to Evonik, Vecollage Fortify L offers the dual advantage of fortifying skin collagen by preventing age-related degradation and stimulating collagen production by the skin itself.

Developed in partnership with Modern Meadow Inc., specialists in protein development through fermentation, Vecollage Fortify L is made using fermentation technology that enables vegan college to be produced in a controlled way with a smaller ecological footprint.
