THE WHAT? Aptar has won two awards for its recyclable, mono-material lotion pump; the Worldstar 2023 in the Packaging Materials and Components category.
THE DETAILS The company won the further PCD Innovation Award in the Premium Skincare category for Aptar Beauty’s collaboration with Dermalogica.
The awards are highlighted as acknowledging the ‘sustainable and omnichannel attributes’ of Aptar’s Future pump.
According to a press release, “The polyethylene (PE) dispensing solution is 100% mono-material, with a fully-plastic engine, and is completely recyclable when paired with a PE or PET bottle.”
THE WHY? The Future pump allows cosmetic industry players to offer more ESG-friendly packaging to consumers, making it a valuable asset.
Kevin Davis, Packaging Engineering Director at Dermalogica, said, “Aptar’s pump is truly a game-changer in recyclability and mono-material packaging. In addition to its sustainability features, Future’s e-commerce-friendly design is equally important to our brand since we ship high volumes via small parcel.”
