Neopac, a global provider of high-quality tube packaging for a broad array of industries and applications, earned an award at the Perfume, Cosmetics & Design Paris show for the sustainability of its PICEA Tube for the brand Bamse, owned by Trimb Healthcare. The tube is one of Neopac’s EcoDesign products, a comprehensive line of eco-friendly packaging solutions.

The PICEA Tube is comprised primarily of a combination of spruce waste and a plastic matrix of sugar-based raw materials made exclusively for Neopac. In total, the tube is composed of 95.8% renewable materials. Notably, the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) CO2 footprint analysis revealed that the PICEA wood tube uses up to 38.9% less CO2 in its life-cycle than a traditional polyethylene (PE) tubes.

Other benefits of Neopac’s PICEA Tube include easy printability, recyclable capabilities, and similar barrier properties compared to PE or low-density polyethylene (LDPE) tubes. The PICEA Tube has also attained Ecocert and Cosmos certifications, as well as EU Food Grade status.

Bamse offers a skin care range specially designed for children, with ingredients that are gentle to sensitive skin. Bamse claims to be the kid’s hero in the bathroom: strong, kind and fair. The brand is committed to eco-friendly packaging for its Ecocert-certified product line.

“Not only is the PCD Award an incredible honour, but it acknowledges the success and commitment of Neopac’s sustainability efforts,” said Michael Aringhoff, head of sales cosmetics for Neopac. “This recognition will support our endeavors to create additional eco-friendly products similar to PICEA, expanding upon our EcoDesign portfolio.”
