Cosmetic 360 highlights packaging innovations

Cosmetic 360, the Paris-based trade show dedicated to innovations throughout the beauty supply chain, took place on October 12th-13th, 2022. From water-soluble sachets to biosourced monodose packaging, we highlight some of the innovations on show.

Cosmetics packaging solutions specialist Embalforme showed its Omega refillable jar. The glass jar (40% PCR) has a click-in refill made of linen, hemp and reed that is says is compostable. Omega is available in 30ml and 50ml formats, and both the pot and jar can be colored.

 

 

Italian packaging supplier Discos showed its Greendose monodose packaging. Made from 100% sugarcane, the injection molded packs can be customized via pad-printing. Suitable for cosmetics products including skincare and haircare, they are available in formats ranging from 0.5ml to 10ml.

 

 

Group Overprint highlighted its patented overprinting procedure (done via pad-printing) that it says gives new life to obsolete packaging. With its technology, the French company can print over details such as bar codes and ingredients lists. It can be applied to secondary packaging, tubes and bottles, and works on both glass and plastic, the company says.

 

 

Start-up Sealester, which produces flexible pouches with custom shapes, says it is now marketing its digital sealing technology to brands. Sealester has also worked on the design and ergonomics of its products and has developed two standard pouches. The first has a paper exterior with a cut out (a varnish or PE layer can be added to the interior depending on the product), while the second is 100% PE and has a pourer spout. Future projects include exploring new materials for its pouches, with resistance, recyclability and large-scale production in mind.

 

 

Italian company Eurovetrocap has added to its Laurence and Laura ranges with refillable bottles and jars integrating recycled glass content. Products include glass flacons (60% PCR, 20% PIR), a glass airless pack with recycled PP refill and a glass jar with refill and cap in recycled PP.

 

 

South Korea’s Dowonbiotech showed phytoplastic packaging and products made from corn starch (82% corn starch, water and natural colorants). It can be used for carrier bags, jars, bottles and hairbrushes, among other applications. Dowon sells both the resin raw material and finished packaging as it operates its own factory.

 

Deardot, also of South Korea, presented its water-soluble sachet. Made from plant material and printed with soy inks, the sachet dissolves when placed in water. Inside is a sheet that transforms into a cleanser upon contact with water. Deardot won the Cosmetic 360 Award in the Packaging category for this innovation this year.

 

 

Antarctiqua showed its stackable and modular IceTower that enables 100ml refillable pots to stack together. It can house solid or liquid formulas as well as accessories. The packs are made by Brittany-based ActuaPlast using a biosourced material (castor oil and sawdust), with four available colors developed by plastic coloration specialist Elixance. Antarctiqua is targeting both brands and consumers with IceTower – the packs can be customized for a brand, and it suggests compatible products for the consumer.

 

 

Retail sampling solutions specialist GK Concept showed Dropper, its motion-activated, in-store contactless tester that can dispense formulas of different viscosities directly onto the skin. The device is suitable for products including fragrance, skincare and foundation, which can be dispensed from the product jar or flacon that is placed inside the machine.

 

 

Scent diffusion specialist Scentys, which launched its first fragrance cartridge in recycled PP this year (for Maison Margiela), is aiming to develop cartridges made using biosourced materials for 2023. The company says it has noted an uptick in demand for its scent diffusers, with more brands doing home fragrance and consumers looking for alternatives to candles.
