Health & Personal Care Capabilities

Flexibility and customisation are our main differentiators, discover how our label materials can be tailored to meet your health and personal care application requirements.


Health and Personal Care Label Materials

You can pick and mix a label, ticket or tag construction from our large variety of face materials, liners and adhesives to produce materials to meet your exact application. Choosing the correct adhesive and materials are important as labels for the HPC industry contain vital information, including ingredients, safety, storage and disposal information which must stay on packaging throughout the products lifecycle. Our wide range of water based acrylic and hot melt adhesives are perfect for the health and personal care industry as these adhesives provide super high tack and are fit for a wide-variety of substrates, such as cosmetics, household cleaning bottles and containers.

Reduce Avoidable Plastic Packaging

As health and personal care businesses look to reduce their plastic usage, and with the introduction of Plastic Tax, our in-house technical team have developed an innovative solution which takes avoidable plastic out of packaging and allows brands to switch to recyclable materials to promote a circular economy. Discover EcoPack, our unique FSC® certified paper certified for home and industrial compostability which provides a sustainable, translucent paper-based alternative to avoidable plastic packaging. FSC® License Code C002557. This material can be printed using conventional print methods and can also be optimised for HP printing for use in flexible packaging applications using our proprietary one side coated heatseal and moisture barrier coating. We can also coat Ecopack with any of our range of adhesives and liners for any PSL application to replace a current filmic faced label and replacing avoidable plastic labels.

Innovative Wash Off Label Adhesives

In recent years brand owners such as Proctor & Gamble, Unilever and L’Oréal have noticed a change in buying habits from the consumer towards more sustainable products and packaging. To improve the sustainability credentials of health and personal care brands we have developed a range of innovative wash-off adhesives as part of our Purity Wash range. This new range of acrylic water based adhesives are approved for use in recycling using either hot water caustic or cold water technology. This allow paper or filmic labels to wash off PP, PE, HDPE and PET bottles and containers leaving materials residue free and maximizing the recyclability of both PET bottles and PP,PE and HDPE bottles and containers. Combining our Purity Wash adhesives with sustainable face materials allows you to reduce your environmental impact whilst encouraging sales from new environmentally savvy consumers.
