Our breakthrough technology works with existing manufacturing processes and equipment to deliver natural and biodegradable materials that replace the most polluting plastics.
Good for business and the planet.
Hidden plastics in thousands of personal and homecare products are washed into waste water systems everyday. An estimated 855 billion single-use sachets are produced globally each year and cannot be economically recycled.
Xampla’s world-first materials are drop-in, high-performance replacements for the world’s most polluting plastics. At the end of their life, our materials can even be ‘bio-assimilated’ as food for microorganisms in the soil, effectively turning packaging into fertiliser.
The technology is a triple-win for the environment. We cut greenhouse gas emissions by cutting plastic production; we make efficient use of agricultural and plant waste products as feedstock; and we eliminate plastic pollution.
Brands and consumers alike are crying out for materials that offer the same protective properties as plastic, without damaging the planet. Xampla’s mission is to deliver on that demand.
Inspired by nature, Xampla’s materials feature high strength and flexibility, making them an ideal substitute for plastic in multiple commercial applications.
Our technology is highly scalable and offers a drop-in solution compatible with existing manufacturing processes for single-use plastics and microplastics.
Xampla’s materials are produced from natural plant-based feedstocks with no further chemical modification, enabling them to biodegrade completely and quickly after use for a ‘perfect end of life’.
Xampla’s resin can be processed to make a wide range of products, including flexible films, microcapsules, and coatings.
Building on our patented platform technology, Xampla’s natural and biodegradable materials can replace plastics across multiple high-volume commercial applications, ranging from microplastics within homecare products to edible packaging for the food and beverage industry.

The fortification landscape by Hannah Pearse
In an ideal world we would obtain all the nutrition we needed from our everyday diets. But meeting all of our needs for macro and micronutrient can be challenging, especially with our busy lives, the cost of living crisis and in some cases lack of cooking and storage resource. Therefore helpful initiatives to optimise our […]Read more
