Value-adding plastics for cosmetics packaging

"The Gallery" - Design Materials Collection offers alternatives to current cosmetics packaging solutions, with DuPont™ Crastin® PBT  and renewably sourced DuPont™ Sorona® EP PTT resin grades (FG), which comply with European cosmetics and food-contact regulations. 

The world of beauty and cosmetics requires product packaging to not only be functional and cost effective, but to also be a major driver promoting brand values of luxury, prestige, design and glamor.

At DuPont we think the many possibilities for creativity and brand personality through packaging for the cosmetics industry could be viewed as similar to artists exhibiting in a gallery. The potential for new cosmetics packaging using Crastin ®and Sorona® EP  are seemingly endless. That’s why we grouped our cosmetics design materials collection under  “The Gallery”.

The cosmetics industry uses a diversity of polymers, based on the individual packaging application and performance capability required. The suitability of polymers for contact with cosmetic formulations is an important consideration.

Polyesters from DuPont – polymers of choice for cosmetics:

• Food contact grade polymers in compliance with International regulations (EU and FDA)
• Water contact appropriate
• Resistance to solvents
• Excellent color stability
• Almost “0” moisture absorption
