MATERIAL: Expanded Polypropylene

The ‘His and Hers’ perfume and deodorant set (shown opposite), is packaged in a box manufactured from white card and a protective insert, manufactured from EPP (Expanded Polypropylene). EPP has a warm feel and yet is rigid and strong enough to withstand constant handling. EPP is a high quality foam that withstands impact, it is resistant to chemicals, has thermal insulation properties and has a high strength to weight ratio. EPP is a safe raw material. It can be recycled and is naturally biodegradable.
