Through increasing our use of PCR in our core product lines we are able to help our brand partners achieve their sustainability goals, while doing our part towards a circular economy.” –  Philippe Erhart, President, Beauty + Home, North America

According to a global survey by Nielsen, 81% of respondents feel strongly that companies should help improve the environment.

Aptar Beauty + Home Insights: How BBI Utilized Aptar's Apollo Tec...

Innovation

There are few words that hold such power in the modern world quite like innovation. The constant push to disrupt the market with game-changing functionality and aesthetic is an ongoing challenge that brand owners face as consumers seek solutions that deliver convenience and improve their daily lives. This need for innovation in the aerosol market inspired Aptar Beauty + Home to create Apollo, the first pressurized accessory with a dual-spray option. Consumers now have the flexibility of choice in how they use the product with a simple twist and click. Blumenthal Brands Integrated (BBI) partnered with Aptar Beauty + Home to create a value-added delivery system for the automotive and industrial markets with the launch of Liquid Wrench Pro Penetrant and Lubricant featuring Apollo.

The product features a narrow stream for tighter spaces and a wider spray for broader coverage. Its fast acting and anti-seize formula penetrates corrosion, loosens rust and displaces moisture. Apollo’s locking feature also makes the product e-commerce friendly and easy to store.

Partnership and Collaboration

To bring the Liquid Wrench Pro Penetrant and Lubricant from concept to realization, Aptar and BBI collaborated through the development process, leveraging each other’s expertise in understanding the consumer market and needs for this category.

“Apollo had better features than the competitive twist cap we were looking at for this product.” Robert Stuck, Director of Product Development, Blumenthal Brands Integrated

In addition to innovation insights, brands are able to leverage Aptar’s technical support and project management to help streamline the product development process and ensure quality standards are met.

About Apollo

Consumers have the freedom of choice with an innovative and easy-to-use pressurized accessory. Apollo offers a unique point of differentiation by providing brands a personalized product experience through the selection of multiple spray combinations. Apollo’s patented design includes Aptar’s twist-to-lock technology, which provides peace of mind for secure transportation on-the-go and will withstand the rigors of e-commerce shipping.

Five Tips and Products to Help Tackle Cleaning Your Home

When the duration spent indoors is as lengthy as the winter, there are few better ways to celebrate the advent of warm weather than with a freshly cleaned home. Luckily, there are numerous methods that make the ritual of cleaning more enjoyable.

A national study conducted by the American Cleaning Institute found that 78% of adults agree they would like their homes to be cleaner on a typical day. This desire ultimately urges brands to provide products that satisfy elements of convenience and effectiveness, leaving consumer’s homes looking and smelling clean in a timely manner.

Aptar Beauty + Home offers an extensive portfolio of home care dispensing products that are prepared to do the heavy lifting. “Products like Apollo offer consumers and brands the flexibility to choose between a spray that offers wide coverage for large surfaces and a spray for small or hard to reach spaces all in one actuator, making it a perfect solution for surface care.” Katie Schomberg, Business Development Director, Home Care.

Read below for our top five tips to help tackle cleaning!

Create a Schedule

Before you can take the dive into deep cleaning, it is important to know where to start. The best starting areas are ones that might require extra attention or areas commonly overlooked during your normal cleaning routine. Don’t try to tackle it all at once – plan out where you will start.

Declutter

The change of season is an excellent time to finally organize that pile of papers and mail on your desk, or take control of that chaotic closet. In addition to freeing up space around the house, numerous studies support the notion of decluttering being beneficial to self care.

Disinfect

After you have decluttered it is time to clean surfaces. Using the appropriate disinfectants on high-touch surfaces is a great way to keep things clean while limiting the spread of germs and viruses. Disinfecting alongside dusting and wiping surfaces down assures your surfaces are as clean as possible & fresh for the next season. Products like Apollo give consumers the choice between dispensing their favorite home care product in hard to reach areas, or larger surfaces.

Furry Friends

Those with pets can use spring cleaning as an opportunity to brush and bathe the smaller, furrier members of their family. Be sure to brush your pet outside to help remove loose hairs that carry allergens, dust, and dander. There are also various pet care products that can help your pets look, feel, and smell as fresh and clean as possible after this routine. Aptar Beauty + Home provides pet care dispensing solutions that can ease the tricky process by providing closures that allow bottles to be stored upside down so product is at-the-ready, alongside pumps (pictured in post-consumer recycled resin) for a one handed dispense.

Fresh Views

Once the inside of your home is looking fresh and clean, tie it all together with clean windows. Spraying windows with a glass cleaner & wiping them down afterwards is a great way to usher in a streak-free shine that will leave your guests dazzled in fresh light.
