As a sustainable alternative for cosmetic jars made of acrylic materials Frapak developed a 100% double walled PET jar Trento named after the greenest city in Italy.
The 50 ml Trento jar can be produced in both virgin as recycled PET (rPET) and is now commercially available from Europe.
Both inner- and outer jar and the closure have been made from PET and therefore this crème jar can be classified as mono-material.
Compared to existing jars made from SAN, PMMA, SMMA or other acrylic raw materials the Trento jar can be identified as PET and therefore sorted to the PET fraction in the recycling stream.
This circular solution for applications like facial and body creams links a contemporary design to a lower carbon foot print.
The 50 ml recyclable jar is available in a smooth transparent and a frosted version and samples are now available to all our customers.
In the next couple of months new single and double walled jars made from PET will become available offering alternative packaging solutions for jars made from plastics which are more complicated to recycle.
