Gerresheimer has been working to return plastic waste to the recycling process. In addition to its already established cosmetics packaging made from various blends of rPET, Gerresheimer now offers a cosmetic portfolio made from ocean-bound plastic.


The packaging material is suitable for a wide range of care and cosmetic products, such as shower gels, hair shampoos, body lotions, facial cleansing products and various creams.


Gerresheimer offers its customers rPET made from recycled, ocean-bound plastic.

"We are very pleased to introduce this material to our customers for their sustainability concepts. I am sure that we will now be able to address their needs even better to jointly produce sustainable packaging for care and cosmetic products," stated Niels Düring, Global Executive Vice President Plastic Packaging.


Gerresheimer has developed a complete dimensional analysis together with a functional test and there are no significant differences between ocean-bound and virgin PET material. They only differ slightly in their visual appearance related to the color tonality.
