Sustainability? A piece of cake for Luonkos

18.07.2022 - Virgin Fibre Cartonboard, Customer Stories

For the packaging of its handmade and natural facial cleansers and soaps, Luonkos relies on sustainable packaging materials from MM Board & Paper.

Traditionally, cosmetics are often packaged in plastic materials that are difficult or impossible to recycle. Luonkos is a pioneer in the use of natural Finnish raw materials: the facial cleansing series consists of 100% natural ingredients such as native clay, oats, birch and nettles. It is therefore not surprising that when it comes to the choice of packaging material, ALASKA® BARRIER and ISLA® Duo, which are manufactured at our Finnish plant MM Kotkamills, are a perfect match. Thanks to the packaging, plastic pollution is avoided and it even does not require glue due to the well thought-out folding of the box, which was awarded bronze at the Gold Leaf international competition for its unique folding effect. The ALASKA® BARRIER used for the lid of the packaging is not only an easily recyclable material, but also allows excellent printability and offers the best finishing properties.


The natural and high-quality materials reflect Luonkos as a brand committed to producing natural cosmetics for everyone.

Luonkos soap sustainably packed in cartonboard
  • The lid of the award-winning packaging is made of ALASKA® BARRIER and the inner part of ISLA® Duo.

  • ALASKA® BARRIER is designed as a plastic substitute: It has a fluorine-free, water-based dispersion barrier that provides excellent grease resistance for oily products, such as cosmetics.

  • ISLA® Duo offers good resistance to liquids and greases.

  • Once the product is used up, the fiber-containing packaging can be easily recycled in the carton stream.
