Water soluble solutions: the ecological alternative to water soluble plastics
Lactips has developed a solution that dissolves completely without leaving residue. It is superior to conventional plastics and has been recognised with environmental certifications (TÜV AUSTRIA) or can help earn them (ECOCERT/ECOLABEL/NORDIC ECOLABEL). Its solubility in both cold and hot water, its biodegradability, and its natural origin make it a high-performance, attractive, eco-friendly alternative that meets the needs of many industries while being good for consumers and the planet.
CareTips is a natural, biodegradable matrix in water to carry and release fragrances or active ingredients upon dissolution. Customisable, CareTips Natural Pearls can be used by laundry brands to innovate in the new segment of eco-friendly laundry fragrance boosters with a unique solution offering a superior consumer experience.
Laundry perfume beads
Designed with one of the world's leading fragrance creators, CareTips Natural Pearls scented beads help laundry brands innovate in the new range of eco-friendly laundry scent boosters with a unique solution that offers a superior consumer experience. Placed directly in the drum of the washing machine, the beads will dissolve during the wash leaving a fragrant imprint on the clothes. Once dried, the clothes remain fragrant.
Single-dose packaging for liquid detergent and solid detergent, in powder or tablet form
Very practical for saving time and preventing overuse of detergent, tablets in traditional packaging represent an environmental challenge in terms of the pollutant residue they leave behind, an issue of which consumers are increasingly conscious. In addition to dissolving beautifully, the Lactips material leaves no sticky residue behind. Its total biodegradability and its 100% bio-based composition have been recognised by environmental certifications.
CareTips® can be used to create temporary labels soluble in hot and cold water. Being print-ready, with no need for pre-treatment, the material is printable using conventional techniques (flexographic and digital). It offers an innovative and environmentally friendly approach to circular economy issues and is in compliance with the AGEC law. The soluble labels made with CareTips allow to reach the re-use and food function markings channel.
Laundry bags with water-soluble opening
Validated by hospital laundries, Lactips has designed a preventive product to make the handling of infected laundry safer and limit the risk of contamination in the laundry treatment chain. Pushed by the authorities and industry players, Lactips now markets the water-soluble opening system for laundry bags. Placed directly in the machine, the soluble opening disappears completely in contact with cold and hot water, freeing the linen from the bag during the washing cycle and without leaving sticky residues. Made from 100% natural ingredients, the Lactips material meets health and ecological challenges by reducing the use of single-use laundry and by favouring biosourced and fully biodegradable solutions to protect people and the environment.
