Sustainability & circular economy
Products will be based on Bio Acetate S70. This is a material based on cellulose, more precisely wood pulp or cotton. Regular acetate contains a lower percentage of cellulose than Bio Acetate S70 and needs to be mixed with chemicals like plasticizers (phthalates), which can be toxic and cause reproductive and general health issues. Additionally, normal acetate contributes to micro plastics found in the oceans. Bio Acetate S70 contains less chemicals, instead using more bio-based substances. It is also biodegradable. Consequently, it is not toxic and it does not contribute to ocean micro plastics.
