Polypropylene vs Cellophane OR
Cellophane vs  Polypropylene

What Type of Bag Should I Choose?


The FDA has approved both cellophane and polypropylene bags for use in packaging consumer and business products. Neither is ‘better’ than the other – just different. Here are the basic advantages and disadvantages.

Cellophane is a Natural Product 100% Biodegradable Eco-Friendly & Non-Pollutant Has Excellent Water Vapor, Gas & Fragrance Barriers High Gloss Transparency FDA Approved

Cellophane is a paper product made from the wood pulp of cottonwood trees and has been manufactured since the mid-1930s.

Cellophane has excellent water vapor, gas and fragrance barriers. It is 100% FDA approved, contains a high gloss transparency, is oil and grease resistant, and is anti-static. Cellophane has excellent dead-fold characteristics, is much easier to wrap and manipulate, and will not revert back to its natural design and structure.

Although cellophane cost more to produce than polypropylene, its product consistency is far superior for the value. Cellophane has high permeability that allows moisture to pass through the product preventing condensation, which reduces the risk of mold. This gives items a longer shelf-life. For example, cigars require cellophane’s permeability to moisture since they must be allowed to “breathe” while in storage.

Pros & Cons

A natural organic product. Eco-friendly, which is also a powerful marketing feature for customers.
More breathe-able for moisture, so works better for chocolates and other foods requiring moisture permeability.
Natural dead-fold holds its shape.
right, glossy transparency truly showcases products.
Cellophane’s sticky nature actually works for and against it. With some products, this may annoy your customer by making unwrapping inconvenient.
Cellophane easily rips and tears, and is weaker than polypropylene, which means pointed products inside could easily tear it.
Cellophane has a limited product shelf-life. If you need to bag a food product that may be on the shelves for a while, you may want to consider polypropylene or our premium acrylic coated polypropylene bags.

Polypropylene (“poly”) bags are economical and a great value for the money. They are suitable a variety of products, such as dried fruits, nuts, cookies, spices and chocolate. Other popular uses include photos, flower sleeves, portfolios, stationary, potpourri, soap, gifts and sterile products.

Polypropylene bags must be heat sealed, taped or tied for closure to protect the contents enclosed within. Unlike cellophane bags, poly bags do not have a natural dead-fold and resist winkling when folded.

Pros & Cons

Costs less than cellophane. Consider this option when you need functional (vs. beautiful) packaging.
High clarity and quality are comparable to cellophane. Natural crinkle sound when handled.
Does not have natural dead-fold (i.e., a dead-fold is film that sticks to itself). These bags will not wrinkle as easily as cellophane.
More protective than cellophane.
Stiffer, resists tearing.
Excellent oxygen and moisture barrier to protect a bag’s contents.
Avoid polypropylene bags when a bag requires use at high temperatures, for example, with food products that require reheating in the oven. (NOTE: Atlanta Cello and Poly does have special polyester bags which can be microwaved and used with grilling products.)
Avoid polypropylene bags if you have products that requires moisture breathability.
