The packaging was for Exentrique’s Facial Cleanser and was reportedly designed to sustainably enhance appeal in the online sales channel and ensure a consumer-preferred unboxing experience.

The one-piece sustainably sourced carton board packaging features soft touch and gloss varnishes, internal flaps for a gradual product reveal and is glue-free.

“We are proud to have won a Gold in this year’s Pro Carton awards and delighted that the unique solution we produced for Exentrique has been recognized," said Olivier Serre, sales and marketing director for Essentra Packaging. "One of the factors driving development of our packaging solutions is understanding the needs of brands and combining sustainability, technology and creative design to deliver real impact for a wide variety of cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and branded goods."

"It is an honour to see our Facial Cleanser receive the Gold Award at the European Carton Excellence Award 2021," said Danika Woods, Exentrique’s founder. "You cannot put a price on what I have gained from working with the Essentra Packaging and the Design Hub team. I can honestly say that I am looking forward to future developments and growing together. They have made my start-up process a real pleasure."
