Eastman is exhibiting its latest innovations in cosmetics packaging at LUXE PACK Monaco, one of the premier shows for creative packaging, from October 1-3 at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. Among its many advancements to be showcased, the global specialty plastics provider will be launching two new products:

Eastman Trēva™ Engineering Bioplastic

Trēva is a cellulose-based plastic that offers better performance with less environmental impact. For cosmetics brands looking for sustainable solutions for opaque and color-tinted packaging, Trēva offers a premium packaging solution that performs as well as acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). Unlike ABS, its bio-content enables brands to progress towards their sustainability commitments and improves the brand’s sustainability story.

Eastman Cristal™ EV600 Copolyester

Cristal EV600 is a high-flow polymer with the polish and feel of glass. An evolution in The Glass Polymer™ family of cosmetic materials, Cristal EV600 achieves a deep and colorless transparency with superior luminosity. It also outperforms other copolyesters with better gate aesthetics. The result is a luxurious sparkling effect—making Cristal EV600 the new standard for cosmetics packaging, especially for medium- to thick-walled applications.

High-performing Materials for Aesthetics & Sustainability Needs

Kendra Harrold, marketing director for packaging, Eastman, said:
“We’re thrilled to share these new products with the market at LUXE PACK Monaco. With the introduction of Cristal EV600 and Trēva, brands now have the ability to choose materials that uniquely fit their performance, aesthetics, and sustainability needs.”

Eastman has also collaborated with Groupe Rocher on an innovation process that has resulted in the design of a new “ecodesign compact” concept, made entirely of Eastman’s two new materials. Groupe Rocher shared their concept for the ecodesign, simplifying processing into a single step instead of the typical three-step process. The design also eliminates the metal hinge pins and uses plastic pins instead.
