Sustainability is becoming an increasingly important factor for customers and manufacturers when it comes to packaging.
With demand rising, brands have to look for ways to make their packaging kinder to the environment. This used to mean making compromises, which many luxury brands didn’t want to make.
Now, however, it’s much easier to create luxe packaging that feels extra premium, yet remains sustainable.
Here’s how you can create luxe packaging that keeps your brand feeling expensive, but still satisfies the sustainable demands of your customer base.
Choose a sustainable packaging supplier
It all starts with the company you choose to produce your product’s packaging. You should try and align yourself with a partner that shares your sustainability goals and understands your vision.
At APackaging Group, we work hard with our customers to come up with innovative and luxurious packaging solutions, while providing sustainable materials that are beneficial to us, customers and the environment.
Pick your materials wisely
When choosing your packaging you should be conscious of how sustainable the material is that you’re using.
If sustainability is your goal, you should avoid non-recyclable packaging wherever possible as this will just end up in landfills once your customer has finished using the product.
For luxury brands, glass may be a good option for your products. The weight and appearance of glass feel very luxurious, but it can also be recycled or reused over and over again.
You could also experiment with other, more creative, materials like bamboo for your packaging if this fits with your brand.
Be conscious of the amount of packaging you use
You may want your packaging to be exciting and eye-catching, but be careful not to over-design.
Try to only use as much material as necessary to hold the product to avoid creating too much waste.
Don’t try to add extravagant lids, or make the product bigger than it needs to be, this will just require extra material which isn’t a very sustainable choice.
Consider the full life-cycle of your packaging
When manufacturing packaging, you don’t just need to think about the materials and processes that go into the initial creation of your product. You also have to think about the full life cycle.
What happens your customer finishes their product? Can they return the packaging to be recycled? Can they reuse it after? Do you sell refills that they can insert back into the packaging?
These should all be important considerations that ensure full sustainability for your packaging solution.
Using the power of social media marketing for skin care products
You know the impact of social media in today’s marketplace, yet you may not have used it as much as you could to market your brand of cosmetics or skincare products. With the impact of our various social media conduits, marketing your brand is easier than ever. Here are a few ways you can use the power of social media to attract attention to your products.
How to create packaging that reflects your important brand
Your brand is your bread and butter as a cosmetics or skincare manufacturer. And the product itself is only part of that brand. The face -- or packaging -- of your product is part of what gets the attention and attraction to your product before it is even removed. Standing out from the competition is often what makes or breaks even the best product.
The benefits of stock cosmetic packaging
For companies that need a specific brand presentation but don’t have extensive financial resources to invest in custom molds and tooling, stock products can be a perfect fit. Today, there is the ability to take stock packaging and make it speak the language of your brand without the custom price point.

The best cosmetic container options for your products
Today’s packaging and cosmetic containers must not only fit the personality and packaging needs of the product but, often, they can also convey their own message on who you are as a brand. In fact, product containers should be considered at the beginning of a launch plan to ensure that your brand message is seamless.
Natural vs. sanitary - How COVID-19 has changed the way we think about our products
Over the past few years, we have seen a growing trend in sustainability and environmentally clean products. Many environmentally-conscious nonprofits had announced significant steps toward more sustainability and transparency in the beauty and personal care industry bringing large industry players on board.
How does your packaging convey your brand online?
Since the inception of e-commerce in the early 1990s, not only has online shopping grown exponentially but, especially during the COVID-19 shutdown, it has been the only way that your customer could get your product with brick and mortar shopping virtually at a halt. And as we see retail morphing in real time and many traditional retailers going away, online presence is more important than ever.
