Spectra has recently created new environmentally friendly bottles for skincare brand incognito.
The two new packs take advantage of standard designs from Spectra’s off-the-shelf ranges and are made from biopolymer, which uses ethonal from sugarcane waste. The new hair and body wash pack uses Spectra’s 200ml Tubular, whilst a 100ml Tall Boston Round has been chosen for incognito’s anti-mosquito spray.
Different to conventional oil based HDPE, biopolymer HDPE is made from 96 per cent renewable raw materials and can be recycled in the same stream as normal HDPE, making it the perfect environmental alternative to regular HDPE polymers.
There is no difference between Spectra’s biopolymer HDPE and a normal HDPE. Appearance in colour, process, productivity, performance and properties are all the same as conventional HDPE. Nicky Monina, incognito, said, “Our aim is to ensure consistency across all our product line packaging and Spectra stepped up to the plate with a biopolymer solution for both of these products. As an ethical brand with a long term sustainable focus, it’s important that we can have confidence that our packaging can deliver what’s needed and evolve with us in an ever changing environment.”
