This technology reportedly allows inert gases such as nitrogen or simple fresh air to be used as propellants in aerosol sprays.

Beiersdorf has acquired an equity stake in Salford Valve Company Ltd. (Salvalco), a company specializing in creating aerosol valves for use with ecologically sustainable propellants.

Salvalco, which is based in the United Kingdom, has developed aerosol valve systems called Eco-Valve. This technology reportedly allows inert gases such as nitrogen or simple fresh air to be used as propellants in aerosol sprays, thus providing a more sustainable alternative to conventional aerosol propellants. Salvalco offers valve designs for a wide range of aerosol product solutions and applications.

Beiersdorf explained that the investment “further underlines its ambition in driving disruptive initiatives and innovations under its C.A.R.E.+ strategy and new sustainability agenda. The partnership will strengthen Beiersdorf’s footprint in sustainable packaging solutions. It also supports Salvalco’s further research and the commercialization of the patented Eco-Valve technology, aiming to jointly bolster its global outreach.”
