It’s time to glow up! Looking gorgeous is a big deal for cosmetics beauty brands, and the packaging of products is vital to your brand's success – including the all-important unboxing experience.
Put your best face forward by using packaging products such as custom tissue paper and branded stickers. These eco-friendly packaging materials provide an easy and effective way to present your products in the most attractive way possible, while keeping plastic packaging out of circulation.
Custom tissue paper brings an injection of your brand's personality to any packaging, while adding a sticker provides a stylish and playful touch that binds your parcel together. And with both being made from 100% FSC certified acid-free paper and eco-friendly soy-based inks, both are heavy-hitters the sustainability sphere.
Want to take your packaging to the next level? Here are 8 sustainable packaging cosmetic brand examples whose custom stickers and tissue paper meet the definition of 'clean beauty'.

Mixing the soothing lighter tones of the water-activated tape, with the richer purple of the tissue and stickers, projects an instant view that Lilasuds is a brand that oozes luxury and indulgence.
Owner Desirée Velázquez Rodríguez knows that a huge part of her customers' experience is in the joy of unboxing their products: “When I package an order, I want them to feel like they are getting their money's worth and then some.
