This new biobased series presents products that have flexible applications in manufacturing, allowing the use of existing molds and equipment.
Baralan can use the biopolymer as an eco-friendly alternative to synthetic polymers. The company can produce certain standard items with injection-molding technology by combining the processing capabilities of thermoplastic materials with the properties of renewable resources and natural materials.
The biopolymer is made by combining natural fibers and waste from a specific manufacturing process, ensuring full recyclability.
Packaging in the series includes:
- Roll On Packaging (fragrance and essential oil applications) with three biobased caps (Fran 13, Olimpia 13, and Olimpia Alta 13) with a bio-Housing GPI 13/415 and GPI special for roll-on, that combined with the glass roll-on ball creates a full eco-friendly roll-on set.
- Glass Jars (skin care and makeup applications) with three biobased Malang caps in GPI 40/400, GPI 48/400 and GPI 53/400.
- Compact case (skin care and makeup applications) with the biobased Colt Jar 15.
- Spray or Cream Pumps (fragrance, skin care and makeup applications) with the biobased overcap Mauritius Slim GPI 18/415 to be combined with glass bottles of any capacity.
- Nail Polish with the biobased cap Mary Smooth 13 GPI 13/415 compatible with any glass bottles with the same neck size and all available accessories.
