WHAT IS NATRALOCK®? (copy)

Natralock® packaging combines a highly durable, tear-resistant paperboard with a thermoform blister or bubble to protect your product from theft and damage. Natralock® is made with paperboard that can contain up to 30 percent recycled content, uses less plastic than traditional clamshell packaging, and features a compact blister for product display.
