Cosmetic packaging and bioplastic
The awareness about using bioplastic materials is high in the cosmetic packaging market.
This sector has been studying the use of plant-based components for a long time in its product formulations. It is thus natural that it is also inclined towards using them for packaging.
With the arrival of biobased and non biodegradable versions (predominantly biobased PE and PET), the markets naturally developed based on rigid packaging (vials, bottles, pots, etc.) and flexible packaging (primary or secondary packaging films, etc.) which had already integrated PLA a few years before.
The packages are also an excellent means of communication regarding environmental issues related to the use of these materials.
The use of by-products in these packages is an ever increasing demand, thus allowing for a better environmental footprint of the products and an immediate differentiation with innovative appearances.
Benefits of using bioplastic
Improvement of the environmental footprint of the packaging (using biobased products, by-products, etc.)
Same possibilities as with petroleum-based polymers
Facilitated communication on the product and innovations by using by-products
