LeafLAB creates biodegradable paper packaging


Plant fibre paper for face masks and cleansing sheets

LeafLAB (SWM) has created a new paper packaging product. Made from plant fibres, the new biodegradable materials can be used in a range of products, including cosmetics.

The materials are suitable for use in products designed to store and release formula, such as face masks, skin cleansing sheets and beauty patches.

Fabrice Werner, Vice-President of SWM Advanced Fibres and Materials, says: “The work that we’re doing with LeafLAB is genuinely revolutionary. Combined with patented technologies, our expertise enables us to take fibres from a variety of plants and transform them into botanically rich products.”

LeafLAB now plans to develop a range of plant-based beauty products.
