Recent innovative packaging developments have predominantly revolved around different aspects of sustainability, such as recyclability, biodegradability, compostability, refillability, reusability and the use of biosourced materials or raw materials derived from renewable resources. These trends are being pushed by multiple drivers, starting with individual consumers being more eco-conscious, along with brands wanting to be more forward thinking and focusing on the 3 R’s (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle).

SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, today announced that Beiersdorf will innovate the packaging of its world-leading ‘NIVEA Naturally Good’ range of face creams using SABIC’s certified renewable polymers. SABIC’s bio-based polypropylene (PP) resin, part of its TRUCIRCLE™ portfolio, will be used for producing the jars of Beiersdorf’s NIVEA Naturally Good day and night face creams. The new NIVEA packaging will be phased in at point-of-sale outlets worldwide from June 2021 onwards and make a major contribution to help Beiersdorf reduce its use of fossil-based virgin PP.

The certified renewable polypropylene (PP) of SABIC’s TRUCIRCLETM portfolio is derived from a ‘second generation’ feedstock, a by-product of the forestry-industry.
