The recent packaging show dedicated to beauty and personal care solutions showcased some emerging tech solutions that are causing a stir.

Here, we present a roundup of some of the key players.

WooDoo

WooDoo is a cleantech player that has created ‘bionic wood’. Its patented tech follows over half a decade of research, and consists of a new wood material: waterproof, 300% more stiff, fire-retardant and translucent.

Based on the circular economy principles, this material is “about to make a change in the construction industry, tackling tomorrow’s zero net carbon cities,” according to Climate KIC​.

In presenting at ADF&PCD, WooDoo made clear it is also looking to offer packaging solutions for beauty players looking to make a sustainable shift.
