Proteo by Aptar: Innovative Flexible Packaging Concept Launches i...

Global dispensing leader, Aptar, launches convenient dispensing sachet

Aptar’s newest innovative dispensing concept called Proteo is a unique form of 50ml transportable, resealable, flexible packaging developed in Brazil. Rio de Janeiro was the setting for the product launch, focused on the retail industry and designed to meet various categories of personal care products. Proteo is designed to serve consumers who are looking for convenience and embracing the trend to carry products “on me”.

With its chic, flat design, Proteo can be taken anywhere and is easy to open and close because of the dispenser fitment format. The flexible package fits in tight spaces and also allows for easy and complete emptying of products such as sunscreens.

Proteo can help to optimize the consumer shopping experience and accelerate growth of the brands. The format allows unique promotional options, including point of purchase displays, sampling and merchandising. The packaging has a large, flat “billboard” for art, giving prominence to the brand and instructional communication.

“Proteo has been very well accepted because the package is lightweight, flexible and easy to store. It is a product consumers can take with them everywhere because it allows easy access and full use of the package’s contents,” said Mirelle Orpinelli, Aptar Regional Market Development.

We invite you to watch a short video about Proteo.

We needed a new application method, something different from that of a traditional fragrance. In other words, a highly feminine and precise touch. On top of that, we were looking to make a bottle for women on the go, for them to carry in their purse and reapply at any time throughout the day,” explained the team behind J’Adore by Parfums Christian Dior.

L’Oréal and Aptar Collaborate on New Hair Mousse Styling Foam

The intuitive dispenser design offers consumers choice of use as the package can be picked up for hand-to-hand application, or conveniently set on the counter to dispense.

As a result of the collaboration between L’Oréal and Aptar Beauty + Home, the hair mousse format has been redefined into an exclusive design with excellent dispensing functionality.

Lionel de Benetti's New Brand Features Aptar Beauty + Home

Lionel de Benetti has created his first facial skincare product by teaming with Aptar Beauty + Home

Lionel de Benetti sought to develop a product to suit all skin types, suitable for all ages and levels of skin sensitivity. The product required a high concentration of the main active ingredients, which in turn need to be protected while the product is being used as they are susceptible to oxidization. For this reason, Lionel de Benetti selected Aptar Beauty + Home’s airless system to safeguard these ingredients.

“This facial skincare product requires an airless container to ensure that the product does not come into contact with an atmosphere where oxidization is possible. The tests carried out by Aptar Beauty + Home show that its dispensing system protects the product from contamination,” he explains.

Lionel de Benetti opted for simplicity for his first facial skincare product, choosing the see through, 40 ml version of the Aptar’s Irresistible packaging range. Due to its unique airless technology, Irresistible offers cosmetic brands a complete dispensing system that has been developed for the most sensitive formulas. Its multi-layer, pocket-sized bottle and dispensing system provide high performance and protection against exterior contamination, contributing to excellent hygiene.

Aptar Beauty + Home is a solution partner providing packaging dispensing systems for the beauty, personal care and home care markets.

Aptar Beauty + Home Delivers Optimal Tool for Surface Cleaning

In 2015, the global market for the ‘surface cleaning’ category was estimated at $20.2bn according to Euromonitor International, with the sub-category of ‘multi-purpose cleaners’ contributing to one-third of the market estimate. Aptar studied consumer behavior to understand this market and to deliver a solution based upon consumers’ need for convenience and control in their cleaning regime.

Multi-purpose cleaners offer consumers a faster and easier cleaning routine without sacrificing cleanliness.  Although these cleaners can decrease the overall amount of products consumers use to clean their homes, they still have to use multiple package platforms because there is no single product that can reach all cleaning areas – until now.

Runway Trigger + Bag On Valve (BOV) = Optimal Cleaning Tool

The aerosol platform provides continuous delivery of product and coupled with our bag on valve (BOV) technology, we can offer pure product delivery at any angle.  But top it with Runway, the newest pressurized packaging trigger from Aptar, and you have the optimal cleaning tool.  With its patented dual actuation, it gives the consumers a dispensing choice in their cleaning regime.  Actuate with the finger on top to deliver product for short applications, or as a trigger for longer applications.

Imagine needing only one product and package to clean an entire bathroom.  Actuate as a traditional button for short bursts for cleaning your mirror. Next, switch to the trigger and spray the entire sink and surrounding counter area.  Lastly, use Runway with Aptar’s BOV technology for toilet cleaning, easily reaching under the rim and sides due to the 360 degree actuation. The entire bathroom can be cleaned without ever having to stop and change cleaners or packages.  Truly one product does it all.

A  fast and easy experience that puts the consumer in control of their cleaning.

Vague de Fraîcheur Selects Glencoe Twist-Lock Aerosol Accessory ...

With Aptar’s twist-lock actuator, consumers are delighted about the capability to lock their deodorant and throw it into their handbag for on-the-go use. The new Glencoe system from Aptar Beauty + Home can be locked securely with a twist and was recently selected by Vague de Fraîcheur for their new elegant deodorant packaging.

Aptar’s Glencoe twist-to-lock design is playful and intuitive. The actuator has been designed to emit an audible “click” when opening and closing.

Indiastar Awards, organized by the Indian Institute of Packaging, focuses on promoting and encouraging excellence in packaging design, innovation and technology. Indiastar Awards was established in 1972 and is a premier event in India’s packaging industry.

Known worldwide as an innovative dispensing solutions provider, Aptar Beauty + Home was awarded a 2015 Indiastar award in the category of Excellence in Consumer Packaging. Aptar Beauty + Home won with Fine Mist spray technology for FOGG deodorant.

FOGG

Aptar’s non-aerosol Fine Mist technology used for FOGG deodorant is a one of its kind technology which doesn’t require propellant for dispensing and instead works on a precompression Fine Mist pump platform. This platform allows superior atomization for various products. The combination of the Fine Mist pump platform and a one inch mounting cup allows a proper connection to standard metal cans and can also be used for aerosols. This provides customers with the convenience of a predetermined and equal dosage with every pump action in uniform particle sizes and results in a long-lasting perfuming performance and enhanced consumer experience.
