With Eastman’s Cristal Renew, Axilone sites certified ISCC Plus

Axilone has been awarded ISCC Plus certification for its sites in Europe, the US and China, making it the first beauty packaging manufacturer using Eastman’s Cristal Renew to obtain certification on three different continents.

By integrating molecularly recycled copolyester Cristal Renew into its packaging, French supplier Axilone is now globally certified ISCC Plus (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) throughout its the value chain.

The company is now able to supply packaging made from Cristal Renew for stock and custom-made injection-molded applications across make-up, skincare and fragrance.

Eastman’s Cristal Renew is said to offer high levels of recycled content without compromising on performance or aesthetics.

The molecularly recycled copolyester is chemically identical to virgin material, says Eastman. Luxe Packaging Insight spoke to Glenn Goldman, Eastman Commercial Director for Specialty Plastics, last summer about the process. “Molecular recycling is so called because the waste plastic is “unzipped” or converted back into its molecular form and then rebuilt into the polymers that eventually become packaging or other items,” he explained. “The technology allows us to offer high levels of certified recycled content; we divert waste that would otherwise go to landfill.”
