Available in three pcr levels (30%, 60% and 100%), Baralan's new closures offer an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional polypropylene components.
Baralan, a specialist in primary packaging for the cosmetics and beauty industries, will now offer sustainable components with varying levels of PCR (post-consumer recycled). The range of caps produced at its Italian production site, which was traditionally made of polypropylene, will be available in three levels of PCR: a basic level of 30%, an intermediate level of 60% and a complete level of 100%.
The objective: to promote a circular economy for the entire cosmetic packaging industry. The different levels of PCR offered will allow brands to maintain the desired aesthetics of the packaging while meeting the growing consumer demand for sustainable products. Even customers who are looking for high-end aesthetics will be able to incorporate a certain amount of PCR into their packaging solutions.
Note: PCR material can be used with existing molds and equipment, allowing brands to switch to more durable products without having to invest in specialized equipment.
"This launch is extremely interesting for us from a sustainability perspective. It demonstrates our commitment to developing innovative and environmentally friendly packaging solutions for cosmetics and beauty products, which meet the high quality levels that our customers and end users expect, while reducing our impact on the environment ," said Maurizio Ficcadenti, Global Head of R&D. As our PCR caps mark the beginning of a new era for cosmetics and beauty products, we have decided to invest in research and development. »
