Green Line Concept

Our Green line concept


We set the course for sustainability very early on:

Environmental awareness is the main focus of all corporate processes at HK COSMETIC PACKAGING, a focus that we maintain when developing new sustainable packaging solutions. We are also continuously researching environmentally friendly alternatives for packaging without reducing the exclusivity of the end product.


At HK COSMETIC PACKAGING we are well equipped for future challenges:

A high degree of flexibility and creativity combined with innovation through research and development is rounded off by our dedicated, highly motivated team. We look forward to the challenges that the future holds!



You choose the packaging –
and we’ll find a sustainable way to produce it!

Address the effects of climate change and the finite nature of fossil resources

Bioplastics are predominantly made from agro-based raw materials at present, in other words from plants that are rich in carbohydrates such as maize or sugar cane. At the same time, the bio-based plastics industry is investing heavily in research and development to diversify the range of biogenic raw materials available to produce bio-based plastics. The sector is also looking at forestry waste products (tall oil), for example.

Bio-based and semi-bio-based, resistant polymers have identical properties to polymers that are conventionally produced. Bio-based polymers are technically equivalent to their fossil-fuel counterparts, but contribute to reducing the carbon footprint. In comparison with conventional plastics, they offer the unique benefits of reducing the dependency on non-renewable raw materials such as crude oil and minimising greenhouse gas emissions. What’s more, they can also be mechanically recycled within existing recycling streams.

We can process and offer you the following materials:

Recycled PP is the packaging material of the future

Polypropylene (PP) is recyclable to a considerable extent and has numerous positive properties which make it the ideal material for packaging solutions. For example, it is extremely light, unbreakable and has excellent shaping properties at the same time. PP is also insensitive to heat, light and the weather.

Products made from monomaterial PP are ideal for recycling, and should be returned into the material cycle. Thanks to modern technologies, PP packaging can be converted into new packaging of equally high quality by recycling.

At HK COSMETIC PACKAGING we offer different rPP material alternatives.

You will find notes for handling the PCR materials here.

PreProp Leave-on

PreProp Leave-on

With this solution the entire product has a proportion of 95% PCR, since all of the constituents can be manufactured from rPP.



The outer part of the jar and the lid have been manufactured with a PCR proportion of 95%, meaning that the complete jar consists of a 51% proportion of PCR.



The outer part of the jar and the lid have a PCR proportion of 100%, meaning that the complete jar consists of 51% PCR. The stick has a PCR proportion of 78%, and the sliding pin and the slit sleeve have been made from new material.

A distinction is made between molecular and mechanical recycling. In mechanical recycling, plastic waste is sorted according to type of plastic, washed, melted down and processed into recylates. These are then used as the starting material for new products, replacing virgin material. The chemical structure of the plastic is retained in mechanical recycling.

Molecular recycling enables plastic waste that is otherwise not mechanically recyclable for technical, ecological or economical reasons to be reprocessed. Sorted, single-variety plastic waste can easily be recycled mechanically, however it is often inefficient or technically impossible to sort mixed plastics. The mechanical recycling of pods or cups, for example, is almost impossible because of the different layers with different melting points. In this case, chemical recycling is used to also take these materials for recycling.

Our highly transparent bottles with CLARO CR 50 have a recycling proportion of 50% and


less energy consumption than glass manufacturing

a comfortable weight in comparison to glass

and therefore reduce the transport costs and greenhouse glass emissions

less need for secondary packaging

because they are almost unbreakable



HK COSMETIC PACKAGING is certified by the International Sustainability Carbon Certification organisation (ISCC), an independent, global agency that monitors sustainability topics in different industries. It is therefore possible for us to offer packaging from recycled materials that has been certified by the ISCC using the mass balance allocation. We can therefore ensure the traceability of the plastic granulate that we use for your packaging solutions.

The cosmetic industry in particular requires absolute clarity, shine, product compatibility and durability from its packaging. These aspects can also be guaranteed by the molecular recycling technology even for chemically recycled material.

Recycled raw material made from 100 % ocean-bound plastic

Ocean Bound Material consists of 100 % plastics which have endangered the oceans. Because it is sea plastic which has already been in the ocean or plastics in coastal areas which would have soon ended up in the ocean. This plastic waste is collected and transformed into a safe raw material using mechanical recycling so that it can then be used to manufacture high-quality, long-lasting products. This applies to all types of polymers (rPET, rPP, rHDPE, rLDPE). We focus on recycled PP. This process does not diminish the exceptional qualities of plastic (e.g. density, malleability, durability, low weight, elasticity).

The desired finished product is developed following in-depth analysis and consultation with the in-house specialists from HK COSMETIC PACKAGING.

Elegant appearance and
guaranteed recyclability

A considerable proportion of plastic packaging is coloured black to block out light and protect the ingredients. Black packaging is also popular because it attracts attention and gives an elegant, premium appearance. However, the colouring used to date that contains carbon black presents an enormous challenge for the recycling value chain.

Why? Recycling plants operate using near-infrared technology (NIR) with optical sensors that identify the packaging to be recycled using light reflection. These optical sensors cannot detect black packaging to a satisfactory level, which means it is sorted out and lands in the non-recyclable waste.

The solution to this is now carbon black-free colour pigments, which we are also using to colour our black jars and bottles. Instead if carbon black, “adjacent” dark tones are used that are also suitable for direct food contact. In the reprocessing process, plastics coloured in this way can be correctly identified and assigned in contrast to packaging that contains carbon black.

Development of carbon black-free pigments

Thanks to this innovation, proper sorting of black plastics coloured using these pigments is possible using NIR detection systems.

Development of new detection systems

New detection systems and technologies are continuing to be developed and installed to enable material recycling plants to effective sort even conventionally black plastics that contain carbon black.


Using alternative packaging dyes reduces the use of black plastics.

We can all do our bit for the environment and save plastic – every single step counts. Our RE-FILL solutions give you the possibility of providing a high-quality and also sustainable refill option for your products. The inner part of the jar contains the relevant filling material, and can be sold separately. After use, the empty inner part is simply replaced with a full one. All the other components are reusable.

All components are recyclable. The lid and the inner part of the jar are made from PP mono-material, and the outer part of the jar is made from PET. If you are interested in rPET, please contact us.
