Can luxury cosmetic packaging meet the demand for premiumization while being sustainable — and sometimes funny? If we consider the latest innovations that Lumson showcased at Luxe Pack Monaco 2003, the answer is yes.
Thanks to the originality and elegance of its numerous standard models that are designed in-house, and to first-rate decoration capabilities, Lumson offers high-end turnkey solutions within short lead times, for minimum order quantities comprised between 5,000 and 10,000 pieces.
At Luxe Pack Monaco, from October 2 to 3, 2023, Lumson presented two new shapes – named Excelsa and Sublima – completing its Techno Airless Glass (TAG) range of pouch airless pumps assembled on glass bottles. These new luxury bottles were designed for prestige skincare products and make-up.
“As far as beauty packaging is concerned, premiumisation and sustainability are concomitant trends,” Cécile Pompili, Marketing Strategic Manager at Lumson, told Premium Beauty News.
Also unveiled at Luxe Pack, the new Infinity range includes four glass bottles (from 15 ml to 50 ml) and a 50 ml refillable glass jar with a removable PP cup. For increase sustainability credentials, Infinity items can be all produced using post-consumer recycled (PCR) Glass.
Expanded Eco Balance range
Last but not least, Lumson has expended its Eco Balānce range, which now features the Eco Dropper mono-material dropper and a jar with a new PP cover.
The Eco Dropper is a coloured mono-material dropper that was designed to bring a breath of fresh air for this type of product, in addition to its environmental benefits. The components are made entirely of PP allowing to be easily declined in an original and coloured version.
Of course, since these droppers are made of a single material, they can be easily recycled at the end of their life cycle. “This does not compromise technical performance, however: Eco Dropper provides the same precision and ease of use as traditional droppers,” claims Lumson.
The collar and pipette are made of PP while the seal is made of polyolefin, a special elastomer compatible with the PP recycling chain. This solution simplifies end-of-life recycling, so that all the components can be processed along the same chain. The Eco Dropper can also be combined with PCR glass bottles for increased sustainability.
To complete the range, Lumson has created a new 100% PP cover to replace the former PETG solution. The main challenge was not to compromise on the aesthetics for each of the three elements of the cover — outer/inner/sealing gasket – now only made of PP.
The cover can be combined with Lumson’s Slim 58-diameter and De Luxe 66-diameter jars in both standard and refillable versions. For an even greener approach, the components can be made of PCR PP. And once again, the use of PP allows the brand to add a touch of colourful cheerfulness to the packaging solution!
