Sustainable packaging and products have long been a concern in the food industry. This forward-looking trend has also reached the cosmetics sector with companies gradually eliminating harmful active ingredients and disposable packaging from their product lines. A Scottish manufacturer of personal care products has been relying exclusively on natural ingredients and environmentally-friendly packaging since 2014. For easy dispensing of its products, the company now opts for the All Plastic Bellows Pump, which contains 100% polyolefin materials and is therefore, 100% recyclable.
Consumer demand for renewable and sustainable materials is growing. This is confirmed by a recent study carried out by the Plant Based Products Council, an association of internationally active companies committed to promoting the bioeconomy. The study reveals that two out of three consumers think about plant-based products when making purchasing decisions. Sixty-one percent are more likely to be interested in companies that produce or use sustainable products. Therefore, sustainability is at the core of the well-known manufacturer of personal care products based in Scotland.
The company is committed to environmental friendliness in all areas. Only natural and sustainable materials are used for its beauty products such as creams, hair care products and make-up. Even the packaging of its products is designed with sustainability in mind. Compostable bags or cardboard boxes with environmental certification are used for shipping the products. The company also works exclusively with plant-based and degradable inks for printing the labels. New to the range are aluminium bottles that can be refilled again and again.
Visually appealing, easy to handle
The pump is especially suitable for liquids such as soap, body lotion, facial care products and hand creams. The shape of the plastic spring in the pump enables easy portioning of the products. When it came to choosing a color, the Scottish company opted for plain black, but the cap, drive and bellows are available in all colors and can be customized. In fact, the pumps are also now available in a post-consumer resin (PCR) option to further reduce their footprint and to meet impending Plastics Tax regulations.
Fragrance is no longer only about the scent
Sustainability is arguably one of the most significant trends in almost every industry today – and the fragrance sector is no exception. The scent itself is no longer the only deciding factor. Consumers want e-commerce-ready solutions that keep the product intact and secure during transit. With its ingenious perfume pumps and fine mist sprayers for fragrances, Rieke is ideally positioned to fulfill these wishes.
