Sustainable Revolution in Cosmetics Spearheaded by TotalEnergies Corbion and Sulapac


TotalEnergies Corbion and Sulapac have joined forces in an innovative partnership aimed at advancing the use of eco-friendly materials in the beauty industry. They are dedicated to easing the shift towards sustainable packaging and products, addressing the urgent need for greener options.


The dilemma between choosing biodegradable, biobased materials or opting for recycled alternatives is now a thing of the past, thanks to Luminy® PLA bioplastics technology. This advancement allows for the use of recycled biodegradable biopolymers, like rPLA, which are now commercially available and match the quality of new materials.


This collaboration is a significant step forward in the field of sustainability. Sulapac is incorporating TotalEnergies Corbion's recycled biodegradable biopolymers into specific material categories, facilitating the integration of environmentally friendly components into cosmetic packaging. Sulapac also intends to support the recycling effort by gathering and providing waste materials to TotalEnergies Corbion, further encouraging a circular economy.


There's a growing demand for recycled materials, particularly in the cosmetics industry, a key market for Sulapac. However, the global supply is still trying to keep up. Suvi Haimi, CEO and co-founder of Sulapac, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, highlighting its potential to meet the recycled content needs of their upscale cosmetic clients.


This partnership leverages the combined expertise of both companies to help cosmetic brands significantly reduce their environmental impact, all while maintaining product quality and performance. By integrating biobased recycled biopolymers, the beauty industry can now adopt a circular model, contributing to a more sustainable planet.


Thomas Philipon, CEO of TotalEnergies Corbion, highlighted the transformative impact of their collaboration: "Our combined efforts are setting a new benchmark in the cosmetics sector, offering an eco-friendly solution that does not compromise on performance. We're leading the way to a more sustainable and resilient beauty industry."


The union of TotalEnergies Corbion and Sulapac marks a crucial move towards embracing a circular economy, showcasing how innovation and joint efforts can foster significant environmental progress. With a focus on promoting the use of recycled biopolymers, these companies are redefining what it means to be environmentally responsible in the cosmetic field, championing a new era of sustainability.
