Cellophane is a natural polymer made from cellulose, a component of trees and plants. The cellophane we source is made from cottonwood trees sustainably farmed and harvested specifically for cellophane production - no rainforest or old growth trees are used. We only carry the uncoated 100% biodegradable cellophane products, which generally biodegrade in 28-60 days.
Cellophane is considered a high-grade packaging material which is used for the storage of many types of products, including food. Some food products commonly stored in cellophane include baked goods, candy, nuts, dried fruits, spices, as well as greasy or oily products. Cellophane has an average water vapor rating and excellent machinability and heat sealability. Cellophane may be microwaved and can be used in the freezer.
