Product Description
Eastar™ Renew copolyester GN007-99 Natural is a copolyester with an added mold release. Eastar™ Renew GN007-99 Natural will not crystallize and thus offers wider processing latitude than conventional crystallizable polyesters. With a good combination of clarity, toughness and gloss, this material is highly versatile and thus suitable for wide range of cosmetics and skincare applications.

Eastman Renew polymers have been certified by International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC), a global, independent agency for tracking sustainable content in a variety of industries. Renew polymers are produced with ISCC certified circular content by mass balance allocation.

Renew polymers enable a brand to reduce consumption of fossil feedstock-based plastics, achieve sustainability targets without compromise, and be a fast mover in a growing market for sustainable consumer products.

This product has been GREENGUARD INDOOR AIR QUALITY CERTIFIED. The GREENGUARD INDOOR AIR QUALITY CERTIFIED mark is a registered certification mark used under license through the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI). GEI is an industry-independent, non-profit organization that oversees the GREENGUARD Certification Program.
