Fusion Packaging, in collaboration with Paklab, developed packaging for the skin care brand Kamou by Kallini Beauty. The vision for the line is described as “portable, affordable, results,” and Fusion developed eight packages for the brand including its six-piece Skin Care Collection Travel Set, along with their Anti-Aging P.M. Soufflé and Anti-Aging Eye Cream jars. For the Skin Care Collection Travel Set, Fusion developed a custom design utilizing 10 and 15 ml sized mini airless bottles from the Eclipse collection along with custom tubes for the six products. Jars from Fusion’s Edge collection were used for the Anti-Aging P.M. Soufflé and Anti-Aging Eye Cream, taking advantage of their contemporary, sleek, clean and clear look. The result is functional packaging with uniformity that complements Kamou’s overall identity as a brand that utilizes the latest technology and unique influences like military camouflage to give their clients a flawless finish.

Available in a 15 ml format, the new Multi-action Eye Contour from Sothys boasts a sophisticated grey and white decoration.
The Akademikliniken Skin Science Centre in Sweden uses its own skin care range, the result of extensive research and development by its team of skin therapists, dermatologists and plastic surgeons. The two latest anti-aging products in the range benefit from the protection of Yonwoo airless technology, in packaging developed by Quadpack. Pure Lift Serum and Pure Antioxidant Creme are protected from oxidization and other external contamination thanks to Yonwoo’s airless designs. Yonwoo’s Check Valve system further prevents back-flow contamination, ensuring the product does not seep back in after outside contact. For Pure Lift Serum, Quadpack developed a 50 ml airless bottle with a classic cylindrical shape. The slimline pack features a rim base and shoulder pump that gives a stable appearance and elegant style. The white color-matched bottle has a bespoke cap with the logo debossed along the edge, and a peep window shows how much serum is left in the bottle. For Pure Antioxidant Creme, Quadpack used a 50 ml airless jar with a dual structure. The inner container is made of polypropylene for its excellent product compatibility, visible through a transparent outer wall to striking effect. The jar also features an actuator disc for hygienic usage. The disc is pressed down to release a 0.50 cc dose with minimal contact, thereby avoiding bacterial contamination.
