Albéa Tubes, the world’s leading supplier of plastic and laminate tubes for the cosmetic, skincare, personal care, and oral care markets, has signed partnership agreement with U.T.C.G and eXpackUSA to provide beauty & personal care brands with Made in America tubes from post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics.

eXpackUSA, a renowned co-packing and manufacturing company for the cosmetics, OTC, and personal care markets, has selected Albéa’s PCR Encore coextruded tube to be part of its platform of responsible packaging solutions. Produced in Albéa’s facility in Reynosa, Mexico, the tube PCR Encore gives recycled materials a second life and helps reduce the carbon footprint pf packaging solutions.

This partnership will accelerate market uptake of circular, low-environmental impact tube packaging. It will help brands deliver on their own commitments to responsible packaging, while contributing to their ambitions to tackle climate change. In addition, Made in America manufacturing supports local jobs and communities, and enables shorter, more agile and secure supply-chains,” states Bruno de Carvalho, head of Albéa Tubes in America.

Starting January 2022, eXpackUSA will offer its customers the Albéa PCR tubes (diameter 16-25mm) with no added cost.We believe choosing the sustainable option should not be a question of price,” says Nimrod Weigel, CEO of eXpackUSA

U.T.C.G, a privileged partner of Albéa serving as a bridge to cosmetic players and contract fillers, acts as the backbone of this new ecosystem.
