Design to reuse should be prioritised as a sustainable beauty strategy because its overall positive impact far outweighs working with reduced or recyclable materials, according to European researchers.
International beauty major L’Oréal has co-developed a plastic cosmetics bottle with French biotech specialist Carbios, made using fully recycled PET via an enzymatic recycling technology that also makes it infinitely recyclable.
A robust global recycling market is a long way off and will need favourable macro-economic changes, fast-paced industry innovation and wider engagement from all stakeholders in the supply chain, says the CEO of TerraCycle.
Colgate-Palmolive has launched a vegan-certified toothpaste line packed in fully recyclable plastic tubes across the UK and EU and says it will share the technology with competitors to drive sustainable change.
Italian packaging supplier Lumson is offering cosmetic manufacturers the opportunity to uniquely design the finish on its plastic bottles, tapping into the multi-sensory trend with its new engraving technique.
Italian packaging firm Lumson has announced the acquisition of PMP with the hope that it will be able to enlarge its range of standard products and offer more efficient service for the development of custom projects for customers in the future.
A novel environmentally-friendly bottle that cuts plastic use by more than two thirds and has a 100% recyclable and compostable mould-fibre shell is set to shake up the beverage and personal care markets, claimed Berlin Packaging.
