Knoll Packaging has launched patent-pending 100% Knoll Ecoform molded pulp compacts.

This latest innovation can replace traditional plastic makeup compacts and features a magnet-free and removable mirror design. The Knoll Ecoform molded pulp compact continues Knoll’s mission to create a better world through design innovation and deepens its commitment to eliminate plastics from its supply chain.

Knoll Packaging introduced Knoll Ecoform onto the market over 5 years ago to eliminate plastics and drive positive change through design innovation. Knoll Ecoform is a plant material made from bamboo, wood and sugar cane fibers. The material is certified recyclable in the paper recycling stream, and can be molded, cut to order and color matched. Knoll has worked with the world’s leading brands to implement the sustainable material and push its boundaries to new limits with 100% pulp packaging solutions.

The patent-pending design of the 100% molded pulp compacts took over 1 year of research and development to launch onto the market. The compact has a smooth luxury feel and finish and is fully customizable.

Benjamin Cohen, creative and innovation director at Knoll Packaging, said, “The launch of our Knoll Ecoform molded pulp compacts pushes the boundaries of this sustainable material to new heights. Our Knoll Ecoform pulp compact took over 1 year to develop to ensure it has the highest level of quality and design to satisfy the luxury market. The configurations are limitless, and the material can be color matched to align with a brands DNA. In 2023, we will see brands adapting this for their own use, as well as implementing Knoll Ecoform for make-up refills. Knoll Ecoform has become one of the most in-demand material at Knoll, and this latest innovation has the possibility to transform the make-up sector into a more sustainable future.”

Knoll recently began offering European production of its award-winning Knoll Ecoform molded pulp and is on track to eliminate 200 metric tons of plastic from its supply chain by Summer 2023.
