Bio-acetate, an altogether kinder material to the environment made with plasticisers from 100% renewable sources rather than oil-based ones. By changing these chemicals into biodegradable plasticisers, the entire material becomes plant based, can break down, and as a result is better for our planet.


The new emphasis of the eyewear sector is the creation of eco-friendly glasses with biodegradable frames. And this is now being achieved through the use of bio-acetate. Bio Acetate is made up of two main elements: cellulose bio-acetate (from wood) and a plasticiser (derived from citric acid esters): both are of natural origin and obtained from renewable sources. It’s made using only wood and plant pulp and doesn't rely on the harmful production/manufacturing of fossil fuels.
