With new health products emerging into the market, stick packs packaging is becoming more and more popular. The sudden boom in demand for eco-friendly stick packaging for single-serve nutraceuticals such as protein powder, collagen, ketogenic coffee, and even cosmetics made stick packs a huge market trend.
Stick packs are becoming the crowd favorite for their lightweight, easy-to-use, highly-portable construction. The best part of it? These sustainable packaging materials have their unique single-serve size that customers no longer need to measure, store and clean up trash, unlike the traditional full-sized packaging.
But what are stick packs made of?
Mostly used to wrap sweeteners, teas, coffee, creams, and some products that have to do with food, pharmaceuticals, and nutraceuticals, stick packs made of paper are usually the easiest to produce and dispose of.
All you have to do is make a little tear on one of its corners, then pour its content for your consumption.
No brainer. Super easy on-the-go must-have.
If your product shouldn’t be exposed to humidity, moisture, sunlight, or can be easily contaminated with air, an aluminum stick pack helps you protect your product and send it fresh to your customers.
Made with a combination of plastics to keep your product contents from spilling, synthetic materials might require you scissors to open it- and that’s totally fine if you want to open it the other way around.
Synthetic materials can give you excellent oxygen and moisture barriers to keep your product from losing its freshness.
Unlike paper stick packs, synthetic materials have better tear propagation and higher puncture and damage resistance. They’re also waterproof too!
