Neopac, a global provider of high-quality tube packaging for a broad array of industries and applications, earned a certificate 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.
