Evonik is partnering with the Chinese company Jland Biotech to market vegan collagen for cosmetic and personal care applications. To maximize the benefits from a long-term, robust partnership, Evonik has invested in Jland Biotech through its Venture Capital group. The partnership will enable Evonik to provide commercial quantities of collagen for applications in skincare such as anti-aging and hydrating creams. The new collagen products, manufactured in collaboration with Jland, will be launched later this year, expanding Evonik’s existing product portfolio of vegan collagen. Evonik recently launched its own vegan collagen Vecollage™ Fortify L for cosmetic and personal care applications.

"Evonik’s life sciences division is using its biotechnology platform to leverage the expertise of its partners and collaborate on precision biosolutions. We welcome Jland to our partner network,” said Johann-Caspar Gammelin, President of the Nutrition & Care division. “Together with our expertise in active ingredients and delivery systems, we are creating a world-leading portfolio of non-animal derived collagen.”

“We value Jland’s outstanding approach to innovation and look forward to helping our customers develop the science-based, sophisticated beauty solutions that consumers worldwide are looking for,” said Yann d'Hervé, Head of Evonik's Care Solutions business line.

Collagen can be used as a bioactive in cosmetic and personal care applications to improve elasticity and hydration in the skin. Global trends towards sustainability are driving a demand for dermatological solutions with high concentrations of active ingredients.

Vegan collagen is of particular interest for formulators developing cosmeceuticals – cosmetic products and bioactive ingredients that are effective in the deep layers of the skin and cater to the rising number of consumers following sophisticated skin regimens.

Jland Biotech is a company dedicated to developing and manufacturing non-animal-derived collagen.
