At Shellworks, nature is our inspiration, and all our materials are created using its most powerful tools. We have developed a library of materials, from the base polymers, to the dyes, inks, and seals to provide holistic, compostable solutions that fit your product needs.
We’re excited to share our latest material offering, Vivomer.
Vivomer is created by the microorganisms that are abundant in both marine and soil environments. At the end of its useful life, these same microbes see Vivomer as a food source and consume it, meaning there’s never any microplastics left behind.
Since 2019 we have pioneered the production of biopolymers extracted from seafood waste.
Perfect for thin film applications, Shellmer is water-soluble at end-of-life, and can simply be dissolved in hot water after use.

We’ve said ‘no’ to petroleum throughout our entire supply chain and have been working hard to develop a range of natural dyes to work with our packaging.
We don’t want your brand to compromise on aesthetics, so we’d love to hear from you if you have a specific color or customisation need.
Our dyes are:
We're uncompromising about sustainability, even down to the last 1% of packaging that seals your product to keep it fresh.
We are expanding our offering to include fully natural and compostable seals that work seamlessly with our catalogue products.
