Sulapac has created jars for water-based cosmetics that biodegrade without leaving permanent microplastics. This has never been done before.
The barriers are no higher an obstacle.
The beauty and personal care industries are worth over $500 billion in a year. The market is assumed to grow annually by 4.75%.
Therefore, the forerunners have eagerly been looking for sustainable packaging descriptions. While around 90% of the cosmetics market consists of water-based emulsions, water-based products have not been an option for biodegrading without leaving permanent microplastics behind.
Presently, Sulapac has created a patent-pending material for them. As well as being completely sustainable, the Sulapac barrier fits industry standard necessities. The test results have been excellent.
“I am excited that we succeeded in creating a sustainable barrier that is suitable for water-based products. We are happy to offer a real game-changer to our customers together with the industry leaders like our Preferred Partner for Cosmetics, Quadpack,” says Dr. Suvi Haimi, CEO, and co-founder of the Sulapac.
Concurrently with the trusted partners, Sulapac presents a compelling portfolio of jars for both oil and water-based cosmetics.
The complete package
At present, Sulapac is also declaring a new flexible material designed for thin-walled jars with outstanding impact strength. It has a low carbon footprint based on eco-design, climate-conscious raw materials, and cost-efficient, high-volume construction.
Connected with the Sulapac barrier, the company’s trusted partners provide a compelling portfolio of different-sized jars for both oil and water-based cosmetics. They also give help throughout the process, a turnkey solution.
“The new barrier developed by Sulapac permits us to continue to offer sustainable innovations that meet and exceed market demands. From new capacities to cutting-edge technical solutions, Quadpack is delighted to provide an ever-growing product range in Sulapac material to all beauty brands,” says Pierre-Antoine Henry, Head of Categories at Quadpack, Sulapac’s Favored Partner for Cosmetics.
Sulapac has made favorable that the switch from conventional plastics is as easy as possible. The drop-in solution material can be mass-produced with the existing plastic machinery. What is more, its natural appearance and haptic feel make it stand out? Sulapac is beautiful, functional, and sustainable, just like nature.
Currently, the perfect way to recycle a product made of Sulapac material is through industrial composting. It biodegrades externally, leaving permanent microplastics behind. Mechanical and chemical recycling are also viable alternatives, and Sulapac is developing a closed-loop system. The Take Back Sulapac guide will be launched shortly.
Presently, Sulapac is looking for forerunner cosmetic brands to connect its mission to save the world from plastic waste.
