As part of their partnership for responsible packaging innovation, L’Oréal and Albéa announce the development of a breakthrough innovation for cosmetic packaging. The two companies have invented the first carton-based cosmetic tube, where plastic is for the most part replaced with a bio-based and certified paper-like material.
The compact features Eastman Tr?va™ engineering bioplastic, a cellulose-based thermoplastic that offers both high performance and reduced environmental impact.
The new innovation provides improved user control for more accurate dispensing, reduced messiness thanks to the automatic seal and a simple ‘pull to start and release to stop’ action for ease of use. Because it is constructed from lightweight materials and ergonomic injection moulded components, it is also more comfortable to use.
Stora Enso is introducing a paperboard tube for cosmetics packaging as a new, climate-friendly alternative to plastic tubes. The paperboard tube is suitable for the primary packaging of skin cream products.
