Dent: Lower environmental impact without sacrificing quality or aesthetic appeal. Guaranteed nontoxic materials. Easy recyclability/reuse. Something that is enjoyable to experience.

Trout: The market for organic and eco-friendly beauty products continues to grow each year with some segments outpacing the rest of the market. Consumers are more and more concerned about the nature of the ingredients found in their trusted cosmetic and skin care products. The growth of airless systems in these categories along with new developments for preserving product, eliminating metal contact and maximizing product evacuation are partly in response to this trend.

Nagel: There is a growing interest in plastics that are both greener in the manufacturing process and that recycle faster.

Schinazi: More and more clients are interested in the idea of reusable packaging. We are sometimes doing very high-end packs that may be reusable as a gift box.

Dwyer: The focus on technology and recycling.
