ACTIVE PACKAGING SOLUTION FOR MORE NATURAL COSMETICS PRODUCTS
Paraben preservatives are used nowadays in a high number of cosmetic packaging products. These preservatives are included in European legislation as components to be reduced in the future. In order to substitute the use of parabens, ACTICOSPACK will produce new packages able to release natural preservatives at the adequate rate and amount into cosmetic products. This mode of preservation enables the reduction of preservatives in the cosmetic formulation and last longer than the actual direct preservative addition, thus prolonging the shelf life of the cosmetics.
The main objective of the project is the development of active packages for the preservation of cosmetic products. In concrete,
• Active bottle based on PET for shampoo
• Active bottle based on PP or HDPE for sun lotion
• Active pot based on PP or HDPE for skin care cream
