“Packaging made from recycled plastic is playing an increasingly important role in cosmetic products. But for us and our peers to push on and achieve the target of viable, fully circular solutions, it is vital to consider the entire lifecycle when creating a new design. This includes polymer production, polymer additivation, printing and design, alongside sorting and recycling. By bringing the expertise of all four partners to the table, the team has successfully created a blueprint for the rest of the industry that enables fast adoption and scale up. We’re honored to have its potential recognized with the Sustainable Packaging Award,” comments Stefan Rüster, a Packaging Sustainabillity Expert at Beiersdorf on behalf of the collaboration team.
“We’re excited to be joining with the industry to pave the way towards more sustainable packaging and ultimately greater sustainability in beauty. We’re proud to bring progress through our additives that support PCR use in durable, recyclable packaging, as well as advancing products themselves via science-backed active ingredients and naturals for the cosmetic market with a positive sustainable and socioeconomic impact,” comments Bettina Siggelkow, Head of Sustainability Affairs, Clariant.

Definitely! Our rice bran waxes are a great testament, a step closer to more sustainable plastics. Now these bio-based processing aids can even be used in polyester applications that require FDA approval, like infant care, food packaging, appliances, and water filtration, even more compounders and converters working with virgin and recycled engineering thermoplastics can use a low-carbon additive to improve efficiencies in their production processes.
