Fusion Packaging and Anthony Brands partnered to package the High Performance product trio. Designed using Fusion’s stock Tru collection, the line features a 50 ml Vitamin A Facial Treatment, a 30 ml Vitamin C Facial Serum and a 15 ml Continuous Moisture Eye Cream. As part of Anthony Brands’ recent revamp, it was essential the packages conveyed the premium skin care brand’s message of being “developed for men and borrowed by women,” and the Tru collection paired well with this gender-neutral aesthetic. To give the product trio an upscale and sophisticated edge, Fusion injected the packages with a lustrous smoky black, paired with matte silver silkscreen decoration and a matching hot stamp band around the base of the overcap. In addition to the High Performance line, the brand selected Fusion’s 100 ml Lift Jumbo airless bottles to package its new Wake Up Call product and to repackage its Ingrown Hair Treatment. To remain cohesive with High Performance, these packages similarly feature a jet black color-injected bottle, pump and overcap with a shiny finish.

Albéa’s My Little Cap—one of the industry’s smallest flip-top cap tubes—was recently selected by Dermophil for its Soin Universel face and body cream sampler tube. The Albéa innovation delivers the same look and functionality as larger solutions in an ultra-compact diameter size that makes it an ideal choice for sampler packs. In addition to the ergonomic benefit of one-hand opening, My Little Cap requires a high-pull force, which makes it safe for children. The white, 10 ml tube’s diameter is 19 mm with two-color offset. The cap is green with matte varnish.

Aptar Beauty + Home recently provided closure and pump options for multiple beauty products. The Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Dry Body Oil uses a gloss black EuroMist spray pump and the Moroccan Infusion Body Lotion is topped by a gloss black Classic Snap Top closure. Also, the Tweak-d Rise and Shine Self Cleansing Hair Treatment is delivered by the airless Bag-On-Valve System and topped with the S20 accessory, both from Aptar Beauty + Home, and the Chi IronGuard 44 Style & Stay Firm Hold Protecting Spray uses the travel-friendly Glide slide-to-lock accessory.

Australian beauty brand Natio launched two new foundations in Yonwoo's Jumbo airless dispensers from cosmetics packaging provider Quadpack. Natio has launched both these products in the Slimline Jumbo. This pump-action container offers compatibility with advanced products, as its airless technology keeps the formula inside free of contamination, and in both cases, Natio has kept Jumbo's shell clear—facilitating color choice—while rendering the container with a silkscreen print and shiny hot foil stamp on the rim.
