Aptar’s flexible packaging awarded at ABRE Awards

Focusing on versatility, convenience and flexibility, Aptar’s packaging has won gold in the Technology division. Cosm’in was chosen by the Long Life group to store Fresh Skin, a 12ml tattoo skin healing cream. The company was looking for a convenient option for customers who need to reapply the products several times throughout the day, as well as easy to carry and store. Another feature of the sachet, developed in Brazil in partnership with Grandpack, is its reusability, made possible by the flip-flop lid.

Cosm’in comes in sizes from 3ml to 12mls and allows for different branding options on both the packaging surface and the lid, which ensures a flat closure and brand visibility. This packaging can be used for face creams, body lotions, makeup, shampoos and conditioners, as well as sunscreens and viscous products with small volume. Its dimensions also enable promotional use for point of-sale-display, sampling and merchandising.

This packaging solution also lowers storage costs since its flexibility results in less storage space. The sachet’s minimum weight reduces transportation costs and the carbon footprint throughout the life cycle of the product. Subsequently, sustainability is promoted through the entire supply chain, according to Aptar Beauty + Home.
