Sourced from local India-based supplier, tubes can comprise up to 28% post-consumer recycled content.
Mumbai, India – 3D Neopac, a global provider of tube packaging for cosmetics and health care, and the India-based subsidiary of Hoffmann Neopac of Switzerland, will introduce a range of post-consumer recycled content tubes sourced from an India-based material supplier at the Contract Manufacturing & Private Label Exhibition, May 4-5 in Mumbai. At Booth C-8, the company will showcase an extension of its EcoDesign portfolio that can comprise up to 28% PCR content, and is available in diameters ranging from 19-50 millimeters.
To produce the new tubes, mechanically recycled materials are sandwiched between layers of conventional polyethylene. As soon as this summer, 3D Neopac’s India-based PCR materials supplier is aiming for FDA-NOL certification, which would allow product contact with the material and hence to add an EVOH barrier to the PE tube for enhanced protection of the formulas.
A prominent India-based skin, hair and oral care products provider, ARATA, has already agreed to utilize 3D Neopac’s new PCR tubes.
“3D Neopac is excited to offer these new recycled content tubes, which we believe will take substantial strides toward our circular economy efforts, and serve as an encouraging example of plastic waste reduction in India,” said Anant Gadre, Managing Director of 3D Neopac. “We also are proud that a well-known, forward-thinking personal care products company like ARATA has agreed to utilize these new PCR tube solutions.”
The new tubes join an ever-growing family of Neopac Group’s sustainability-minded EcoDesign products, including PaperX fiber-based Tube, which drastically reduces both plastic materials use and overall carbon footprint; and a Lightweight range offering thin-walled tubes and SlimLine Caps.
