May 30, 2023 (press release) –

  • Mondi has partnered with leading German skin care company Beiersdorf, creating more sustainable release liners for its new wound care plaster range GREEN & PROTECT from Hansaplast, Elastoplast & CURITAS
  • The innovative release liners are made from renewable materials, using a silicon created in a balanced process of non-fossil compounds

Mondi has created a recyclable release liner for Beiersdorf’s new range of renowned Hansaplast, Elastoplast & CURITAS plasters, supporting the company’s sustainability goal to reduce fossil-based materials and maximise renewable feedstock.

The German skincare company approached Mondi with very specific sustainability requirements. This required close collaboration and mutual trust resulting in the development of a safe and effective solution for the consumer, while supporting Beiersdorf’s ambition to launch a more sustainable plaster.

Mondi has replaced the release liners of the over-the-counter wound care plasters with an alternative liner, which uses silicones following the mass balanced approach, replacing fossil-based raw materials with methanol, made from straw or cut grass. 

The solution is industrially compostable according to ISO 14855 and results from the internal Mondi Recycling Lab in Frantschach show that it is recyclable according to the Cepi 4Evergreen standard paper mill requirements. It also uses less raw materials than its predecessor.

Beiersdorf has sustainability goals that are very much aligned with Mondi’s own MAP2030 goals, which include making 100% of packaging and paper products reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.
