3D Neopac Debuts SpringTube for an Array of Applications in the US and India

  • NEOPAC The Tube
Beauty, Personal Care, Personal Care

With benefits for consumers, brand owners and manufacturers, turnkey solution exemplifies user-friendliness, shelf appeal and versatility.

3D Neopac, a global provider of high-quality packaging for a broad array of industries and applications, has developed SpringTube™, a packaging solution for cosmetics, personal care products and other applications, including art paints. The tube is specially designed to maintain its shape while delivering a host of additional benefits for consumers, brand owners and manufacturers.

Featuring a tamper-evident, push-on PE flip-top cap, the printer-friendly SpringTube™,  can be decorated via digital, flexo or coldfoil processes. For product protection, an ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) barrier preserves oxygen-sensitive formulas, and helps extend the shelf life of beauty and personal care products.

Available in fill volumes from 40-300ml, 3D Neopac’s SpringTube™ offers differentiating benefits to multiple stakeholders, including:

 

  • Manufacturers – SpringTube™ is flat extruded with an EVOH barrier for longer shelf life, and accurate thickness control guarantees smooth processing and dimensional stability. 3D Neopac extrudes and direct prints the solution’s substrate, and mounts the tube’s shoulder and cap – an inhouse, turnkey production process lending itself to efficiency.

 

  • Consumers – Since the SpringTube’s unique composition maintains the tube’s shape during use, the solution shows well both on shelves and, in forums such as online demos, on camera. The tube’s easy-open caps, which also are available with a tamper-evident feature, provide additional safety and user-friendliness. In addition, individualized coding can be applied to each tube for consumer participation in competitions, local events, special rebates or collector series.

 

  • Brand owners – Featuring superior graphics and aesthetics compared to tubes decorated with lithographic labels or offset colors, the direct-to-print SpringTube™ offers brand owners an array of customizable design options like digital print, flexo print and cold foiling. SpringTube™ can feature colored or metalized caps and offers high flexibility properties to replace existing label tubes. SpringTube™ can be individualized down to the unit level by variable data printing, allowing brands to create on-package marketing activities such as sales promotions, competitions, collectables or games.

Kiehl's relies on child-resistant Polyfoil tubes

Kiehl's, a brand owned by L'Oréal Paris, has also launched a customizable skincare range in the U.S., called "Kiehl’s Apothecary Preparations". For highly concentrated formulas like Kiehl's, which contains hydrocarbons, child-resistant packaging is required in the U.S. For this reason and because of its strong barrier as well as its ergonomic nozzle, Kiehl's opted for Hoffmann Neopac's 13.5mm diameter Polyfoil® nozzle tube with child-resistant closure.
