Aptar Beauty has added two aerosol actuators and a fine mist spray that are now qualified in up to 46% PCR resin.
The EuroMist technology, reportedly a bestseller in North America, is available in up to 33% PCR between the fixture, actuator and over cap.
The fine mist spray is suitable for a range of formulas. Its variety of inserts also allows brands to choose a desired spray output that matches the application need.
The Moritz and Markus aerosol actuators feature a hoodless, integrated twist to lock functionality, eliminating the need for an over cap.
The two-piece design provides a 50% resin savings for Moritz and 53% resin savings for Markus .
The Moritz aerosol actuator is available in up to 40% PCR ; the actuator cover is 100% PCR.
The actuator is suitable for a range of applications. The fine-ribbed profile and wide finger pad are designed for ergonomic ease of use.
The Markus actuator is available in up to 46% PCR; the actuator cover is 100% PCR.
The Markus features a premium matt finish and textured finger pad. The softer ribs provide a tactile grip when in use, per Aptar Beauty.
The aerosol actuators and fine mist spray are production-ready in North America, per the company.
The designs are in line with Aptar Beauty's aim to have 10% of its packaging comprise recycled material by 2025.
“We continue to focus on our strategic priority of embedding sustainable product attributes as part of standardized practice here at Aptar, as we believe firmly in our commitments towards a more circular economy,” said Laura Estebanez, president, Aptar Beauty, North America. "By broadening our PCR conversion into our spray portfolio we are able to help our brand partners achieve their aligned goals.”
