After releasing its first skin microbiome-targeted product in 2018, Evonik is intensifying efforts to understand the complex ecosystem of microbes living on the skin. As a result, Evonik hopes to improve its existing cosmetic raw materials and inform the development of new ones. The company is just one of several cosmetic raw material suppliers taking steps to accelerate skin microbiome R&D in recent years, recognizing the impact such capabilities can have on product development. Clients supplying raw materials into the BPC market should not wait to get involved. Given that skin microbiome-targeted products are already on the market, those that choose to "wait and see" will fall even further behind their peers over the next two years.
