The Axilone Group announces its ability to produce a wide range of sustainable luxury cosmetic packaging using Eastman's advanced circular recycling technologies and Eastman Cristal Renew copolyester.
With 50% certified recycled content * derived from Eastman's molecular recycling technologies, Cristal Renew is part of a large portfolio of sustainable resins now offered on a large scale by Eastman, a global specialty materials company. Axilone, one of the world's leading producers of luxury cosmetic packaging, is the first manufacturer working with Eastman's Renew family of resins to achieve ISCC Plus certifications for sites on three different continents, enabling it to produce packaging with high levels of certified recycled content in the United States, Europe and China.
“With Cristal Renew, we are delighted to offer brands the same level of performance and design freedom that they have come to expect from our premium packaging, now with a compelling sustainability profile., said Reynald Trochel, innovation leader of the Axilone group. At Axilone, we have been very active in our research and development efforts aimed at considerably minimizing the environmental footprint of our products and the use of fossil materials. Eastman Cristal Renew offers a robust solution that diverts waste from landfills and uses ISCC * certified recycled content in place of fossil raw materials. "
Axilone is now able to supply packaging made from Cristal Renew for a wide range of stock and custom injection molded applications for the makeup, skin care and fragrance segments worldwide. Through ISCC (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification), Axilone and Eastman are able to offer brands the peace of mind that comes from independent third-party verification of recycled content claims.
“Given our long history of collaborating on cosmetic innovations, Axilone is a natural fit to bring sustainable packaging made from Eastman Renew materials to a global audience.said Renske Gores, market manager for specialty plastic and cosmetic packaging at Eastman. These materials offer significant environmental benefits, including diversion from landfills and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. And they're chemically identical to products in the Eastman line, so they retain the best-in-class clarity, shine, and processability brands expect. "
* Recycled content is achieved by allocating recycled plastic waste to Cristal Renew using an ISCC certified volume allocation process.
