Nowadays, there isn’t any commercial solution that meet both biodegradable and antioxidant cosmetic product requirements. This brings a big opportunity for SMEs both cosmetics manufacturers and polymer and packaging manufacturers to receive a commercial and economic return on their investment.

The main aim of BioBeauty Project is to develop a biopackaging solution for organic skin creams through a combination of nanotechnology and active packaging. It will be based on an environmentally friendly biomaterial such as a PLA bionanocomposite and a natural active agent with antioxidant properties. The incorporation of nanoclays to the biocomposite is to improve the barrier properties of the PLA. The incorporation of natural antioxidants in the packaging is to delay the degradation of cosmetic creams.

The safety of each component will be tested through in vitro toxicological studies.
