Henkel’s complete Oral Care tube portfolio will be fully recyclable by early 2021


Collaboration with packaging partner Albéa to advance circular economy.

While toothpaste tubes are being used by millions of consumers every day, not many may know that today’s classical tubes couldn’t be recycled so far – their multi-layer construction poses a challenge for recycling facilities. This is about to change: In line with its packaging targets and commitment to avoid plastic waste, Henkel converts its entire Oral Care tube portfolio to fully recyclable tubes produced by its packaging supplier Albéa. The transition, to be concluded across all Oral Care brands beginning of next year, will be pioneered by the Spanish toothpaste brand Licor del Polo.
