From sustainable to circular plastic usage

A forest seen from above.

Plastic is still the most suitable packaging material for our products, but there is a lot that can be done to use and manage plastic in the most sustainable way possible.

At Sterisol, we work diligently to contribute to sustainable and circular plastic usage while minimizing resource consumption. This not only involves reducing the use of plastic itself but also reducing the energy, transportation, and other resources required to produce plastic. We have made significant progress but continuously strive for further improvements and ideas.

Small amount of plastic

The refill pouch in the Sterisol System contains a very small amount of plastic relative to the product volume, compared to a plastic bottle. The significantly lower plastic consumption reduces transport volume and carbon dioxide emissions for both plastic raw materials and final products.

Our 100% goals for plastic

  • 100% recyclable plastic laminate in the Sterisol System.
  • 100% recycled material in our rigid plastic packaging such as bottles, tubes, and jerrycans.
  • 100% recyclable rigid plastic packaging such as bottles, tubes, and larger cans.

Sterisol System and the plastic consumption model

In a business with 500 employees using soap in 600ml bottles with pumps, 89kg of plastic is consumed per year. By switching to the Sterisol System under the same conditions, only 15kg of plastic is consumed per year. That's a reduction of a staggering 83%! Sustainability is fundamental to our products, allowing Sterisol to offer skincare that truly makes a difference.
