Cosmetic Packaging Innovations You Need to Know About

Innovations from around the world

We’re seeing a few awesome advancements from numerous providers around the world. We’re also seeing innovations in the area of refillable custom cosmetic display packaging boxes and some of the larger brands making recycling packaging commitments within a certain time frame. The news is all great, and it’s unquestionably heading in the right direction.

Introducing Innovative Packaging Plastics

For today, This blog post will introduce you to a couple of innovative types of packaging plastics from JUST CUSTOM PACKAGING. Many cosmetic packaging suppliers are into this sort of innovation. 

JCP will provide you with some samples that will enable you to see and make your choice when selecting innovative packaging concepts.

Biodegradable Plastic Packaging

First, we have a huge range of 100% recycled materials, but we’re going to get much more exciting than that. The first one I want to introduce you to here is a totally biodegradable plastic.

These cosmetics display boxes, by comparison, can biodegrade in landfills within six to ten years, completely gone, with no resins, no microplastics, and no trace of this packaging again. 

This particular biodegradable packaging is available in all sorts of plastic forms: PET, LDPE, HDPE, and even PP, so you can get tubes, bottles, jars, and much more. There’s a biodegradable option, totally biodegradable within six to ten years. You can get beautiful clarity, which means you can screen print directly onto it. This is the first example of our innovative packaging concepts.

Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) Tubes

The next innovation I want to introduce you to is the PCR tubes. PCR stands for post-consumer resin, more commonly known as post-consumer recycled plastics. We have this available as a 50% PCR recycled option in tubes or a 30% option that can be used for bottles such as HDPE. 

One of the great things about using PCR materials is that they perform, look, and feel exactly like the non-recycled version. But you can of course get part of the material as the recycled version that would go into landfill and turn them into another bottle or tube. These can come in a variety of colors, can be screen printed onto, and will look and perform exactly like the non-recycled versions. Still, you’ve got the advantage of letting your customers know that you have reused materials in this bundling with the same excellent surface, color, and capacity to have all sorts of colors or screen printing connected to your packaging.

Sugarcane Bioplastic Tubes

Next is a really cool one, and this is sugarcane bioplastic, which comes 100% from sugarcane. It’s an incredible way of utilizing crops that have a quick turnover to make plastic tubes. These come as LDPE or HDPE or can be a mixed choice of both. They can also come as single-layer or five-layer tubes, so they’re very durable and sturdy. You can get all sorts of diverse top choices for the showcase of the item as well. You can get all sorts of different lid options for the presentation of the product as well. These come in a variety of Pantone colors and can also be screen printed onto as well. 

Another awesome thing about sugarcane bioplastics is they are totally recyclable. You can get all sorts of diverse top choices for the introduction of the item as well.

Ocean Waste Packaging

Another fantastic innovation is ocean waste packaging. They source the old ropes or old ocean waste from fishnets or trawls and then break that down to create plastics. Compared to sugarcane bioplastic, which is a high-quality opaque type of packaging or PCR, these have an incredible natural flick through them, showing they are made from recycled or upcycled materials. These HDPE tubes will look, perform, and feel just like other HDPE plastics, but they have up to 50% ocean plastic waste used to create the plastic tube. They’re available in various colors and can be screen printed directly onto them, achieving a great natural look, and they are fully recyclable.

Benefits of Different Packaging Options

These are some of the packaging innovations coming from JCP. There are numerous providers around the world with their developments too. So, you can ask for biodegradable, PCR, sugarcane bioplastic, or other innovative materials to show your consumers you care and help the environment in the process.
