New Plastic for Cosmetics Packaging

Beiersdorf plans to soon launch cosmetics packaging that uses a renewable polypropylene (PP) from Sabic’s “Truecircle”  product portfolio. In the production of the renewable PP, fossil raw materials are replaced by plant-based ones. In this way, the skin care company aims to help further reduce the use of new fossil plastic in its product packaging.

The renewable raw material that forms the starting point for the sustainable plastic is tall oil, a byproduct from the paper industry. This is produced during the processing of trees into pulp. It can reportedly replace the equivalent amount of fossil crude oil usually used in the production of plastics.
