MWV unveils new airless dispensing solutions for cosmetics

  • Silgan Dispensing Systems

The availability of new sizes and customization features for each new product offers greater possibilities in innovation, design and branding differentiation for cosmetics and personal care customers.

Additional sizes, versions and customization options expand Aria®, Prelude™ and Pearl™ product lines. At Cosmoprof 2009 in Bologna, MeadWestvaco (NYSE: MWV) unveiled the newest members of its renowned Calmar dispensing solutions portfolio: Aria® airless, Prelude™ airless and Pearl™ mini airless.

Aria® airless and Prelude™ airless dispensing solutions both feature a 32mm container with piston available in sizes 15ml, 20ml, 30ml, 40ml, 50ml and 75ml. The new airless solutions can be designed to distinguish and elevate the brand through techniques such as colored metal overshell, metallization and lacquering on the pump and bottle, silk-screening and hot stamping.

Aria® airless and Prelude™ airless are based on the Aria X-fitment engine and both feature a snap-on closure, providing unlimited customization possibilities and maximum protection for the most sensitive formulas. Each product includes the Pure Path™ technology, a metal-free fluid path system which eliminates the risk of corrosion and discoloration because no metal comes in contact with the formula. These solutions are produced at the company’s European facilities and are now available throughout Europe.

MWV also introduced the Pearl™ mini airless, a 32mm closure version of the original Pearl™ airless. Pearl™ mini airless is now available in two new bottle sizes, 15ml and 50ml, in addition to the existing 30ml, reinforcing its strong market position and increasing its flexibility for new applications. The new smaller option is ideal for highly concentrated formulas, typically used on the eyes and lips, while the larger size is suitable for hand and body creams, hair serums and gels. Pearl™ mini airless also offers a wide array of customization possibilities, such are silk screening, hot stamping, lacquering and metallization. It features a metal-free dispensing system based on Rolling Bellow Technology™, the revolutionary 100 percent silicone, single-component engine. The Pearl™ mini airless is produced in Europe and available worldwide. These new cosmetic dispensing solutions had been on display at Cosmoprof Bologna, 2009.

5 factors to consider when selecting an actuator for your aerosol product

For aerosol consumers, the actuator is often the most overlooked part of the product packaging. While they recognize the actuator is the component that dispenses the product, not many are aware that the actuator also controls the fineness of the spray, the amount of product that is dispersed and even how the product is applied. Because the actuator controls the nuances of how a product is dispersed, the actuator can make all the difference in an end user’s experience with a product.

Silgan Dispensing stands out from the crowd and increases brand loyalty through premiumization

More and more these days, our customers are looking to be different, driven by consumer demand for a more premium brand experience. Brands consistently are seeking to stand out to capture consumers’ attention through thoughtful consideration of packaging design. Premiumization, a trend that started a handful of years ago, continues to gain steam as brands seek to create a better experience for customers.
