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.
