Finnish bio-composite specialist Sulapac and beauty packaging supplier Quadpack, are enlarging the scope of possibilities for brands looking for sustainable packaging options with a new addition to the “Sulapac Nordic Collection by Quadpack”: a 50ml jar designed for water-based formulations.
Bio-based and biodegradable solution
The new reference features Sulapac’s new bio-based barrier. Using a biobased and biodegradable material, the patent-pending technology allows to create a sustainable packaging solution for water-based products, which account for the vast majority of the cosmetics market.
The inner part of the jar is made from this new barrier, while the outer part is made from the now well-known biocomposite material from Sulapac. The whole jar biodegrades in industrial composting schemes without leaving permanent microplastic behind.
“The new 50ml cosmetics jar is the perfect size for the most popular skincare products, from anti-ageing treatments to moisturising creams, as well as haircare, lipcare and men’s grooming,” explains Quadpack in a statement. The jar’s barrier properties passed standard weight loss tests  at Quadpack’s central test laboratory in Barcelona, Spain.
Made in Germany
First brought to market by international beauty packaging manufacturer and provider Quadpack in August 2020, the Sulapac Nordic Collection comprises 15ml, 30ml and 50ml jars initially designed for oil-based and waterless products.
The Sulapac Nordic Collection is made at Quadpack’s manufacturing facilities in Germany. Part of Quadpack’s QLine product portfolio, it offers a sustainable alternative to conventional plastic packaging. Made of wood-based biocomposite material that mimics nature, it is suitable for industrial composting. Aimed at beauty brands with a genuine commitment to sustainability, it is a driving force in Quadpack’s journey towards positive-impact packaging.
Available in nine colours, the jars can be decorated using silk screening and pad printing. The material’s natural texture can be left visible to emphasise a brand’s sustainability claims.
In addition, the Sulapac Nordic Collection has further been extended with a 200ml jar for waterless products. This additional jar is ideal for bodycare, allowing eco-conscious brands to launch a more complete range packaged in one of the industry’s most sustainable materials.
