Oberdiessbach, Switzerland – Hoffmann Neopac, a global provider of high-quality packaging for pharma, beauty and oral care, has won two awards from the European Tube Manufacturers Association (ETMA). One accolade recognized a current customer application, the other a groundbreaking sustainability solution on the verge of market launch.
First, Neopac’s Stylo™ Pipette Tube, utilized by skincare company Filorga, won the sought-after Laminates category. The tube solution incorporates an innovative pipette applicator allowing for dispensing of Filorga’s Skin-Unify radiance fluid directly onto the skin. The precision dispensing adds new levels of comfort and hygiene.
The Stylo™ tube’s aesthetically appealing ring ensures correct discharge, and offers added product protection. An arrow pictogram helps consumers intuitively understand how to turn the ring. The cone-shaped cap safeguards the applicator, while Neopac’s Polyfoil® barrier laminate ensures ample formula protection.
In all, the tube’s premium look, captivating conical shape, transparent cap and enticing pipette applicator help Filorga’s Skin-Unify radiance fluid stand out in a crowded, competitive space.
Meanwhile, Neopac’s Polyfoil® MMB mono-material barrier tube took top honors in the Prototypes category. A novel combination of product protection, user friendliness and appealing aesthetics, the tube represents a marked advancement in eco-conscious materials technology. Polyfoil® MMB tubes can reduce packaging carbon footprints by up to 38% compared with traditional laminated tubes. The tubes offer ample product protection and compatibility with a diverse array of formulations.
The tube body is made possible through a first-of-its-kind adhesive laminated process, one providing advanced barrier and aesthetic options in the tube body. The tube’s shoulder and cap are made with low MFI HDPE and just 2% of foreign material. When combined, this tube-cap solution comes fully ready for recycling in PE rigid streams; in fact, the tube-cap combination was the first of its kind to receive full technology & product approval from the EU’s discerning RecyClass sustainability verification organization. In addition, Suez Circpack gave Polyfoil® MMB a Triple A rating for recyclability.
The first series of Polyfoil® MMB tubes will be available starting in January 2022.
