New on the Shelves

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare chose Fusion Packaging’s Allure jar for its anti-aging treatment, Ferulic + Retinol Fibroblast Anti-Aging Moisturizer. This launch features the brand’s new ECG Complex designed to target the collagen-producing fibroblast cells, and Fusion’s 50 ml Allure jar was selected as it perfectly complements the aesthetic of the existing Ferulic + Retinol family. In order to replicate the look of the glass bottles, Fusion injected the jar with a custom translucent amber color topped with a black outer cap. The jar was decorated with white silkscreened art that further replicates the look of the product line for a clean, uniformed appearance. Ideal for its endless decorating potential, the Allure jar features a double-wall design, and is available in 15, 30 and 50 ml capacities. The acrylic jar is engineered to withstand custom color injection, spray, silkscreen and heat-transfer labeling.

World Wide Packaging developed and manufactured a unique-to-customer tube for a new line of skin creams from I Am Fragrance, a manufacturer and supplier of fragranced luxury beauty products. The company’s I Am hand cream line consists of nine fragrances, which are housed in a streamlined 30 mm foil polymer tube with a unique octagonal cap. Each tube contains 2 oz. of product. Color selection for the new line’s packaging was both comprehensive and cooperative. The I Am line’s mood-mindful diversity led to an unusually large number of careful decisions regarding tube color choices. World Wide Packaging worked with Product 360, I Am fragrance’s design partner, to ensure the customer’s colors complemented each cream’s name and scent with an appropriate tube hue and tone.

Aptar Beauty + Home’s Bag On Valve system and Twist-to-Lock Moritz accessory were used for the CVS Pharmacy Continuous Spray Moisturizer, helping to dispense the product quickly and evenly in any direction, as well as make the pack more purse and travel friendly. Also, the new Vaseline Men Spray Body Lotion includes the Bag On Valve system and the finger-friendly Twist-To-Lock Simplicity actuator, while the Axe Clean Cut Wet Shine Spray Gel is topped with a gloss black EuroMist HV spray pump and the Garnier Fructis Style Order Power Hairspray for Men uses the twist-to-lock Moritz accessory. Additionally, the Coppertone Sunscreen Spray ClearlySheer for Beach & Pool is topped by the Glencoe twist-to-lock accessory and VX valve from Aptar Beauty + Home.

Axilone developed a cap and ferrule for new editions of both the Boss Night and Boss Day fragrances from Hugo Boss. To create the caps, Axilone mastered a dual technical feat: injecting the massive Surlyn cap in a single process without distortion and injecting it into a 12-cavity mould without creating an imbalance. The cap has a streamlined design with a discreet point of injection at its base, and Axilone applied its molding experience and its rheology tools to the 12-cavity mold. For decoration and assembly, Axilone focused on integrating processes. The injected ABS galvanized gold ferrule is laser engraved to attain a high level of definition on an automated, robotic line. This line de-conditions ferrules, engraves them, does a visual quality control, and then reconditions them. The cap and ferrule are then assembled and conditioned on an automated line. This same line visually controls the ferrule’s engraving as well as its positioning, in addition to controlling the assembly of ferrule and cap.

New Launches

Quadpack’s new Double Roll-On pack features two glass roll-ons joined by a wooden link, in a pen form. With two vials, consumers can choose their scent according to their mood or alternate between eau de toilette and eau de parfum. Thanks to a smooth roller ball, the scent glides onto the skin for a moment of pure indulgence. The central closure is crafted from wood by Technotraf, heightening the sensory appeal of the product. Wood adds a satisfying touch-and-feel element that brings in nature, as well as the consumer closer to the scent. Ball options include glass, plastic and metal, for a cool, soothing touch. Capacity of the bottles is 5 ml as standard, with larger sizes on request. Additionally, the link can be aluminum or PEFC-certified wood. These can be decorated using dedicated techniques such as anodizing, staining or engraving. The glass can by silkscreened, hot-stamped and spray-coated.
