the first biobased, readily biodegradable, and sustainable film-forming agent.

A trend research study conducted by Evonik indicates that the sun protection market is changing. There is a growing demand for daily skin protection with benefits far beyond UV protection, as well as new innovative textures, attractive sensory, and a design to accommodate different skin types.

Additionally, environmental awareness has increased. Consumers have articulated their needs and expectations in terms of sustainable approaches, natural ingredients, and safe products for the planet's health. The use of natural ingredients in sun care is therefore essential in order to satisfy consumers' demand for sustainable products.  

This is why Evonik has developed the highly innovative bio-based & biodegradable film-forming agent, TEGO FILMSTAR One MB, as a sustainable alternative to synthetic film formers.
