Elegante Polymers are a family of PET resins specifically formulated to meet the unique requirements of cosmetics and personal care packaging. The polymers offer glass-like benefits such as water clarity, brightness and sparkle, as well as chemical resistance. The material is easy to process in a broad range of container designs, and also provides excellent clarity and brightness for thick wall containers.

The proprietary material is specifically developed for injection stretch blow molding and/or injection blow molding and can be processed on standard equipment. Packaging made of the polymer also enhances the safety and efficiency of the filling process because it decreases the potential for breakage. They carry a resin identification code "1" which means they can be easily recycled.

The polymers provide options for a variety of cosmetics and personal care packaging applications including shampoos, lotions, facial and skin care and bath and body splashes. They are also available for thick-wall and thinner gauge applications. The clear natural polymers can easily be tinted or colored.
