Neopac, the Swiss-based provider and inventor of high barrier Polyfoil® tubes has recently announced its co-operation with HCT for their patented cool tips in Europe and the United States. Neopac has also expanded its range for the Polaris product line, paving the way for new design options to meet the requirements of cosmetics manufacturers. Polaris perfectly combines form and function. 

Neopac Polyfoil® tubes Polaris with cool tip applicators offer a maximum of aesthetic and convenience. The cool tip combines the cool touch of the high glossy coated metal tips associated with the ergonomic shapes to provide the ultimate beauty gesture. Whilst the cool tips are pleasing to the eye, the Polyfoil® tube provides reliable protection against numerous external influences such as light and oxygen. It may be embossed, hot-stamped or finished with high-quality printing all-around and competed with a variety of possible caps.

Polaris will be an excellent primary packaging for rich creams and serums, which are produced to treat fragile skin zones. The cool touch sensation of the tip combined with the rich formulas increases efficacy on the skin. This will help to repair and reduce lines, swelling, and even blemishes on fragile zones around the eyes and lips. Products are evenly applied and massaged into the skin with the cool tip. A variety of formulas work with the cool tips, such as serums, concealers, creams or lip glosses.

HCT has been one of the leaders for innovative packaging solutions since 1992. Today they provide global turnkey beauty solutions produced in a variety of countries and sites. HCT is known for their colour cosmetic packaging, and after winning numerous industry packaging awards HCT is concentrating on an innovative approach to skincare, by creating ergonomic patented applicators.
