Aptar Beauty + Home: A Custom Partner for IOMA’s Personalized C...

Aptar Beauty + Home is pioneering personalized cosmetics by customizing its best-in-class packaging solution, Serumony, for IOMA, the expert in custom skincare.

IOMA In.Lab is a miniaturized laboratory that allows beauty consultants to specially formulate and dispense more than 40,000 possible combinations of MA CRÈME skincare treatment in just one minute. A new technology was needed to deliver a precise dose of the active ingredients, which is why IOMA chose Serumony by Aptar Beauty + Home. This revolutionary container can deliver hundreds of 0.07 ml microdoses with accuracy to the nearest 0.001 ml. Watch the video below to see IOMA In.Lab in action.

Intuitive and easy-to-use, Serumony’s unique design eliminates waste by delivering a perfectly measured amount of product every time, all with the simple press of a button. And, thanks to its airless technology, Serumony’s watertight cylinder ensures the formula’s integrity remains intact over time. Its metal-free alpha70 pump guarantees compatibility between formula and pack, which helps preserve the effectiveness of active ingredients by reducing the possibility for metallic components to come in contact with the product.

With exceptional design, airless packaging and an innovative application method, Serumony meets IOMA’s unique needs and delivers a satisfying experience to its customers.

New experiences, new application rituals… Aptar Beauty + Home is driving the future of cosmetics through innovation.

Viktor & Rolf Chooses Aptar Beauty + Home’s Note for its Flower...

With the Flowerbomb Twist Collection, Viktor & Rolf offers a new, more personal and more intimate dimension to its emblematic perfume by launching three unique layering oils, Flowerbomb Jasmine Twist, Flowerbomb Musk Twist and Flowerbomb Rose Twist, which allow you to customize Flowerbomb according to your mood.

With Note, Aptar Beauty + Home has reinvented a timeless, sophisticated and precise perfume ritual, a soft and measured application through which a drop of perfume can be easily and delicately placed at the desired pulse points. The cap includes a transparent applicator that fills automatically and the perfume is then deposited by capillarity in contact with the skin.

In choosing Aptar Beauty + Home’s Note, Viktor & Rolf transforms traditional perfume rituals into an exciting experience by simply applying a drop of one of the fragrances (rose, jasmine or musk) and then spraying a fine mist of the initial fragrance, Flowerbomb.

The Flowerbomb Twist Collection is already available in the US market.

Aptar Beauty + Home Partners with Le Grand Musée Du Parfum

A new cultural institution called Le Grand Musée Du Parfum recently opened its doors in Paris, and Aptar Beauty + Home is proud to be a partner.

The museum, in its entrancing setting, is unveiling the unique world of perfume to the general public through an innovative, interactive experience enhanced by electronic olfaction technologies, videos, and more.

With the museum’s opening, the partners had a vision to relay the essence of perfumery as a polysensory experience. Perfuming is a precious, intimate, timeless experience, and “one fragrance, one gesture” is a principle that inspires Aptar Beauty + Home.

Aptar Beauty + Home worked with the museum on an artistic project for a room that is dedicated to the art of perfuming, which includes a video and photo display called “Rituals”, produced by a talented trio of artists and also contributed its new spray system, La Petite, which is present on the 60 perfume bottles found on the grand staircase of the museum. Eternelle Couture atomizers were chosen to activate electronically the olfactory systems placed on the first floor as well as videos situated in the art of perfuming room on the second floor.

Perfuming gesture diversity is apparent throughout Aptar Beauty + Home’s product line, inspiring a select range of sprays as well as alternative gestures such as the atomizer and the glass stopper applicator called Note, one of Aptar Beauty + Home’s latest innovations. Aptar Beauty + Home is re-enchanting the sensory experience one gesture at time.

“We take pride in participating in this contemporary approach with olfactory senses front and center stage. This is also an international stage with two-thirds of international visitors expected,” said Sabine Bouillet-Lubot, Strategic Marketing Manager Fragrance, Aptar Beauty + Home.

New Oval Airless Bottle for Lancôme’s Visionnaire Eye On Corre...

Within its Visionnaire skincare line, Lancôme is launching Visionnaire Yeux Eye On Correction, a triple-action refreshing balm that works to correct wrinkles and erase dark shadows and under-eye circles. For this new premium product, Mega Airless, part of Aptar, has developed an oval container from its Micro range with beautiful decor.

For this revolutionary new product, L’Oréal requested a package with a standout design, as well as 100% formula protection. Mega Airless answered this demand with an oval-shaped bottle from its Micro airless line, available in 15 and 30 ml formats. Unlike traditional cylindrical bottles, this option allows Mega Airless to provide distinct added value to the brand as the bottle is much more visible and offers a greater surface area for printing.

Premium Decor

When it comes to its decor, the package is exceptionally elegant. Manufactured entirely from polypropylene (PP), the pack is protected with a transparent lacquer as base for the silk-screen-printing of the product information. The logo is applied by using silver hot stamping on the top of the transparent cap. The central adapter ring is also hot-stamped to give an aluminum effect.

With this product, Mega Airless demonstrated their know-how in decoration and printing techniques. To meet customer demand, the company has in-house capacity to provide silkscreen printing with 3- and 4-color printing machines, hot stamping and labeling. Partnerships with trusted external suppliers provide further decoration techniques such as metallization and lacquering.
