What is Cellophane?

Cellophane is a thin transparent sheet.

Made from the glucose-polymer, cellulose.

Extracted from natural resources such as wood, cotton or hemp.

Cellophane is sought after for florists, food & gift packaging due to its low permeability to moisture, oxygen, bacteria, oils and greases.

The next alternative, Cellophane - BOPP, Biaxially-Oriented Polypropylene.

It is polypropylene biaxially stretched to cellophane thickness & transparency.

Natural cellophane & cellophane - BOPP both consist similar properties and are essentially interchangeable.

Yet natural cellophane is biodegradable and cellophane - BOPP is recyclable.
Cellophane - BOPP is cheaper since natural materials are harder to source.
