Glass packaging suppliers exhibiting at Cosmoprof Worldwide Bologna last week noted a trend for larger-size formats, as well as glass make-up packaging and screw-neck fragrance bottles. We spotlight some of the novelties on show in part one of a two-part round-up of the Italian trade show.
Berlin Beauty Industries, the newly minted division housing Berlin Packaging Premi Industries (Berlin Packaging acquired Italian beauty packaging supplier Premi earlier this year) showed Makeup in Glass. Tapping into increased demand for glass packaging for make-up on account of its recyclability, the collection combines the company’s existing VIP glass flacons with different accessories; flocked applicators, roll-ons, droppers and mascara brushes. In mascara, the offer spans five applicators with PP caps. The Make Up in Glass collection can be used for mascara, eye shadow, eyeliner, lip gloss, liquid lipsticks, blush, highlighter… Berlin Packaging Premi Industries also highlighted its Foamy 150 ml glass foamer and Airglass Jar seen at LUXE PACK Los Angeles.
Lumson presented its Envers Glass airless jar for premium skincare. The 50ml airless system combines a glass jar, PETG lid and multi-layer pouch, and has a twist on-off mechanism for opening and closing. The lid can be unscrewed after use to separate the components for recycling.
MKTG Industry presented its 4K Printing Technology for glass make-up and cosmetics packaging. The thermal transfer printing technology allows for unlimited CMYK and Pantone colors and up to two hot stamping colors in a single printing pass. The decor is said to guarantee high definition and resistance, with a 360° printing surface.
Baralan is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year with a new brand identity. On the product front, in addition to its DEA airless glass packaging, the Italian supplier also showed packs comprising glass bottles (20% PIR) with caps made using either 30%, 70% or 100% PCR PP. Its sifter jars, introduced earlier this year, combine a glass jar with a plastic sifter in PP. The one-part sifter enables simple dispensing, while the two-part variant allows for the dosage to be adjusted.
Heinz Glas has added to its stock offer with the Venus, Fun and Orris screw-neck fragrance bottles. The bottles, which come in different shapes, are available in 100ml format. The glassmaker showed its 150ml and 200ml Jumbo Jar skincare packaging that combines a glass jar with PP caps, along with its 100ml and 200ml Lemon fragrance bottles with PP caps. Heinz Glas also presented a 50ml glass refill jar with both the refill insert and cap in PP.
Zignago Vetro, which says it has increased capacity for 200ml+ fragrance flacons due to heightened demand, showed the 200ml Elsa bottle that joins the line’s existing 30ml and 50ml formats. Also on show was the 100ml Lama fragrance bottle designed in accordance with the new Cetie screw-ring standard, as well as glass packaging for mascara and lipgloss.
