Our high-performance resins also help brand owners, converters, and equipment manufacturers fulfill on the need for packaging to be durable and sustainable.

A Wide Variety of Packaging Uses

DuPont resins are ideal for use in cosmetic packaging design applications that need:

  • DuPont™ Surlyn® 3D Containers: Considered a genuine breakthrough in the market, Surlyn® 3D over-molding technology offers greater design freedom for luxury packaging.
  • Caps and Closures: With its glass-like effects and shapes that are pleasing to touch, DuPont™ Surlyn® ionomer resin is the cost-effective way to create designs as diverse as an intricate petal shape, a matte-metallized lipstick cap, or a thick-walled closure.
  • Jars and Casings: DuPont™ Surlyn® combines aesthetics and function to create luxury packaging products including cream jars, inner glass containers, body-care containers, and more.
    • Compact Cases and Rigid Containers: DuPont™ Selar® PA delivers a higher standard of aesthetics, sustainability, and performance for compact cases and rigid containers.
  • Tubes, Bottles, and Tottles: Body gel tubes, self-standing tottles, and the innovative “bag in the bottle” are just a few packaging examples made with the help of DuPont resins.

A Commitment to Sustainability in Cosmetic Packaging Design

Through comprehensive life cycle analysis, DuPont is committed to reducing the environmental footprint of its packaging resins while also helping customers reduce their own environmental footprints — all without compromising packaging aesthetics and performance.
