Dissolvable labels: the mystery ingredient that makes your life just a little bit easier.

Have you ever struggled with peeling off that stubborn label from a jar of pickles, only to find bits of paper and adhesive left behind? Well, fear not my friends, because dissolvable labels are here to save the day! But you might be wondering, what exactly are these magic labels made of?

First things first, let’s define what we mean by “dissolvable.” These labels are designed to break down and dissolve in water (or sometimes other solvents) within a certain time frame, leaving no residue behind. This makes dissolvable labels a great option for a variety of industries, including food and beverage, cosmetics and personal care, agricultural, and pharmaceuticals, just to name a few.

So, what are these miracle workers made of? The short answer is: it depends. There are a variety of materials that can be used to create dissolvable labels, each with their own set of pros and cons. Here are a few of the most common options:

  • Cellulose: This is another natural material that can be used to make dissolvable labels. It’s derived from plant fibers and is also biodegradable. It may dissolve a bit slower than PVA but still a good option for certain products.
  • Water-soluble polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) film: PVA is a type of plastic that is often used to create dissolvable labels. When it comes into contact with water, it begins to break down and dissolve. One of the biggest advantages of PVA is that it is completely safe for human consumption.
  • Starch-based materials: These labels are made from natural materials like cornstarch, which makes them biodegradable and compostable. However, they may not be as durable as other options.

All MESS Dissolvable Labels are made with Wood-based cellulose and a water dissolvable paper. As stated above, it’s made from plants! And is environmentally harmless. Some companies use PVA film (plastics) in their labels which releases little bits of plastic into the environment. YUCK! Not a great way to save the planet.

So there you have it, folks! The next time you see a dissolvable label, you’ll know that it’s likely made of one of these materials. But no matter what it’s made of, the most important thing is that dissolvable labels make your life just a little bit easier. No more picking at adhesive and paper bits, no more struggling to open a jar – just pure, unadulterated pickle enjoyment. So the next time you see a dissolvable label, give it a little nod and a smile. It’s doing the hard work so you don’t have to.
