What is Mono Material?

      Mono material in cosmetic packaging refers to packaging that is made from a single type of material, rather than multiple materials that are difficult to separate or recycle. The aim of using mono material is to make recycling and disposal easier and more environmentally friendly.

      With mono material packaging, the entire cosmetic container, including all its components, is made from a single type of material. Commonly, this material is a single type of plastic, such as polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP). By using a single material, the recycling process becomes more straightforward, as the entire package can be easily recycled together without the need for separation.

Mono material packaging is considered more sustainable and environmentally friendly than mixed-material packaging. It promotes circularity in the packaging industry, where materials can be recycled and reused in the production of new packaging, reducing the overall environmental impact. Additionally, using mono materials may also lead to cost savings in the recycling process and can be more attractive to consumers who are conscious about the environmental footprint of the products they use.

The primary plastic recycling method widely used involves shredding plastic components into chips, cleaning them, and transforming them into renewed resin. While basic containers made of recyclable materials, like shampoo bottles and cream jars, can be recycled using this process, packaging with pump mechanisms cannot be recycled in the same way due to the inclusion of metal springs and glass balls.
