Packaging for cosmetics and care products must meet high requirements

In 2021 and 2022, the share of cosmetic products ordered online by consumers and thus had to be shipped was over 20 percent. Especially in recent years, the shipping of cosmetics has gained momentum. At the same time, the pressure on cosmetic companies to adopt sustainable and environmentally friendly concepts is high. Packaging for cosmetics can make an important contribution. To prevent microplastics in cosmetic products, more and more manufacturers are opting for the use of glass containers. However, these also need particularly reliable packaging. For cosmetics and care products, the same applies as for other articles: The packaging must be light and yet particularly reliable.


Mycelium packaging offers many advantages for cosmetics

For the safe shipping of glass flacons and cream jars, various packaging materials come into question. If you are looking for an innovative, climate-friendly, and completely biodegradable packaging, it is best to choose products made from mycelium. Made from the root structure of fungi, these packages can not only be brought into the most varied shapes. Moreover, mycelium packaging serve as a positive image impulse and convince as a brand booster. For this, they enchant with the sophisticated design that quickly becomes an eye-catcher. Furthermore, they can be composted 100 percent.


Good packaging avoids damage during shipping

The packaging for cosmetics and care products is required from the outset to cushion possible damage caused by impacts and less gentle handling during transport. However, the packaging should not be too bulky, otherwise, the shipping costs increase disproportionately. Mycelium packaging meet all these requirements. They are as light as Styrofoam and can also be brought into the most varied shapes.


Will the packaging stay alive?

During the final phase of our growth process, all products are dehydrated in a large drying chamber to remove all moisture from the products. By the way, we re-use that water later in our process! Next, the products are then baked at high temparture (80 degrees) to kill the mycelium.
Finallly we do a check on moisture content of some of the product as part of our quality monitoring process.

Do you package lipstick?


What products can I pack?

We understand the importance of protecting sensitive products, which is why we use mycelium as a natural and sustainable packaging solution. Glass products, porcelain jars, and sensitive metal containers are carefully packed in mycelium protective packaging to ensure their safekeeping.

But that’s not all! Mycelium also offers incredible versatility. We can create custom displays or inlays for our clients, adding a touch of natural beauty to their products. Moreover, mycelium is an excellent insulator, making our packaging ideal for keeping products warm or cold.
This means you can pack: candles, glass jars for skin cream, perfume bottles, dropper bottles, lipstick, and many more.

Do you have packaging for skin cream in glass?

Yes we do!
There are so many different shapes and sizes of these glass containers, that we always make a custom shape mycelium packaging.
