PET is short for Polyethylene Terephthalate, the chemical name for Polyester. PET is a clear, strong, and lightweight plastic that is widely used for packaging across all industries including cosmetics and skincare and is widely recycled.
Because of PET’s unique properties, it is rapidly becoming the world’s preferred packaging material for cosmetics and toiletries. Like glass, it is a very strong and inert material that does not react with the contents, is resistant to attack by micro-organisms and will not biologically degrade. But unlike glass, PET is extremely lightweight, easy and efficient to transport, and shatterproof. If you’d like find out more about PET and the latest eco and recycled options contact us.
