Evonik, a leading provider of specialty ingredients for the personal care industry, has launched a digital commerce portal to better serve the needs of independent beauty and personal care brands. The new platform allows these companies to purchase high-quality raw materials directly from Evonik via an eCommerce platform in smaller quantities than typically available from traditional suppliers. The platform, developed in collaboration with Agilis Commerce, offers indie brands an end-to-end eCommerce experience - from discovery to order placement, fulfillment, and online payments.
"By launching this new digital portal, we're making it easier for indie beauty brands to access our products and services," said Mary Kons, Vice President Care Solutions, North America. "We're excited to be able to provide our customers with the same level of exceptional buyer's journey that larger companies have come to expect."
With the rapidly growing indie beauty and personal care markets, Evonik Care Solutions recognizes the need for a modern and personalized approach to this market. By offering this new portal, the company aims to empower these brands with the flexibility to purchase the exact amounts of raw materials they need, helping to reduce waste and optimize production.
The online portal offers a selected range of raw materials, such as sustainable emollients and emulsifiers, innovative product protection options, unique products that enhance sensorial profiles, and powerful actives that address various skin and hair care needs. By streamlining the purchasing process and making it more accessible for smaller companies, Evonik Care Solutions business is demonstrating its commitment to supporting the growth and success of indie beauty and personal care brands.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Evonik Care Solutions on this exciting new venture," said Jay Bhatia, Founder and CEO of Agilis Commerce. "For the first time in the industry, a leading global supplier is offering end-to-end eCommerce with “touchless” order processing and online payments. Our solution is tailor-made for the chemical industry. We're confident that it will help Evonik attract and engage indie beauty brands and provide them with the speed and convenience they need to succeed in today's fast-paced marketplace."
