100% Recycled PET for Bottles and Jars
PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) is a lightweight and durable polyester which, thanks to its infinite recycling possibilities, possesses an excellent profile from the viewpoint of environmental sustainability. PET belongs to the family of thermoplastics, materials that are transformed by heat into very viscous liquids that are easily worked: they return to the solid state when the temperature is lowered.
Since their structure does not undergo modifications, the material can be subjected more than once to remodeling processes using heat: this characteristic of PET makes it 100% recyclable and it becomes possible to transform it into rPET: we chose to use 100% post-consumer recycled PET for all bottles and jars of the INSIGHT line.
100% Recycled PP for Caps
All caps of Insight jars are made of 100% recycled PP.
Bio-Based PE for Tubes
Our tubes are made of a bio-based material derived from sugar cane.
Recycled PET for Labels
All labels of Insight products in bottles or jars are made of a material that has a minimum content of 25% recycled PET resin.
We joined the RafCycle® project, an innovative recycling concept based on the reuse of scraps generated from adhesive labels to create new materials.
RafCycle® recovers the byproduct of adhesive labels destined for incineration or disposal in landfills, and transforms them, giving them a new lease on life. It also reduces the amount of waste disposed of in landfills and offers countless advantages to printers, packagers and other operators in the label sector and, of course, the environment. Labels are recovered and converted from waste to energy and used as fuel. Thanks to a technologically advanced process, siliconized backing paper is recovered, sent for recycling and transformed into new cellulose that will become new paper.
A program developed for the recovery and valorization of scraps of labels throughout their life cycle.

The road to packaging sustainability is under development, but it is a path made more difficult by the habits of a consumerist society
