Cosmetics Industry Becoming Eco-friendly

Scitech Europa informs that Stora Enso is introducing a paperboard tube for cosmetics packaging as an alternative to plastic tubes. The paperboard tube is used for the packaging of skin creams.

Nowadays cosmetic brands sustainability targets include combating climate change by reducing the environmental impacts of packaging. The vice president of Stora Enso Consumer Board division, Henna Paakkonen-Alvim said they see increasing demand in the cosmetics field for renewable materials.

Currently, making the body of the tube from paperboard reduces the use of plastic by 70% compared with a plastic tube. The company is also developing bio-composite materials to replace the plastic cap and shoulder of the tube in the future.
