This month marks the 30th anniversary of Responsible Care. Responsible Care is the backbone of the chemical industry’s sustainability commitment, helping the chemical industry operate with health, safety and environmental protection as a top priority.
In 1989, Australia became the third country in the world to adopt this signature program. Since that time, Responsible Care® has been helping businesses across the Australian chemistry industry to significantly improve their environmental, health, safety and security performance.
Product stewardship is core to the program, bringing into focus the communities and environments in which the industry operates. This reflects the industry’s strong history of responsible leadership. It also underpins the industry’s strategic importance in our economy and society, and its vital role in creating a safer, more sustainable future.
The program fits with existing business processes and management systems, and complements other systems and standards such as ISO, Australian Standards and the Global Reporting Initiative.
Globally, Responsible Care® is now practiced in more than 65 countries around the world. It is overseen by the International Council of Chemical Associations.
Redox is a signatory of Responsible Care®, which helps to ensure our products are being used and made responsibly throughout the value chain. It also promotes a leadership culture, continuous improvement, a life-cycle oriented approach, and transparent stakeholder engagement.

For an amazing second time this year, RHEANCE® One Glycolipids, by Evonik, have been awarded with the Best Functional Ingredient Gold Award - this time at #incosAsia. RHEANCE® One Glycolipids are leading a new era of all-natural ingredients that do not compromise on performance.
Presented for the first time in Amsterdam, this substance from the glycolipid family can be used for cleaning skin and hair gently yet effectively. This also makes it suitable for challenging skin types.
RHEANCE® One is produced via fermentation—with sugar as the sole source of carbohydrates. Production does not require the addition of any tropical oils. This gives the product the advantage of being both natural and sustainable. Its positive application properties include a dense, creamy foam and a pleasant, natural feel on the skin. The glycolipid is completely biodegradable and offers extremely good environmental compatibility.
The jury for the Innovation Zone Best Ingredients Awards at incosmetics Asia 2018 recognized that RHEANCE® One does an outstanding job of meeting the demands of innovative science and product properties that add value for manufacturers and end consumers.
Redox is a distributor of RHEANCE® One across Australia and New Zealand. Through our dedicated team of Personal Care specialists, we deliver real value and a fresh approach to meeting our customer’s needs in a dynamic market.
