Spotlight on Virospack:
What it takes
to become
a dropper expert

Four years ago, Virospack embarked upon the grand adventure of expanding its operations. The proceedings culminate this year with the inauguration of a contemporary new factory.

Virospack's ambitious plan was split into two distinct phases as a direct response to a number of factors, including growing market need, the increasingly specific requirements of brands, Virospack's own commitment to protecting the environment, and above all a desire to engage in greater competitiveness and flexibility. The expansion allows the company to increase development and production capacities thus ensuring quicker deadlines and responsiveness, primarily by increasing the size of Virospack's facilities from 4,000 square metres to over 14,000 square metres. The company is also investing in numerous cutting edge technologies, an entire array of new machines, and various decorating capabilities. The net result is a company reborn, with modern and more comfortable facilities, less of an environmental impact, a factory offering over 5,000 square metres of production space, and a massive improvement in cost efficiency.

Brands look to create a piece of packaging that has an appealing image and that transmits the brand's concept and values. All of them look for differentiation. Innovation, especially within the cosmetic market, is of the utmost importance. At Virospack, our R&D team and our technical department work hard to develop new proposals, new solutions, and new decoration processes to ensure brands can correctly transmit their lifestyle propositions.

When all is said and done, the economic investment will reach nearly 10 million euros by the end of 2017. This includes rubber cutting, injection, and refrigeration machines that are necessary for a company specializing in droppers. Virospack will offer more automatic assembly and decoration lines, thereby being able to handle greater runs more quickly. The company has also focused on improving its existing offerings by setting up a second automatic metallization line as well as an artificial vision QA station - an innovative technology incorporated into lines to provide dimensional control of vials and much more precise control over the production of pipettes. These are all innovations with which Virospack seeks to move into the future, to continue being a sector leader and trendsetter, and to provide the best quality and service to cosmetic brands, as it has for the last 60 years.

Numerous companies are marketing products that are geared toward offering precious oils with special ingredients​. Virospack droppers offer the proper, targeted dispensing required by thin or viscous oil products, using a variety of materials for high formula compatibility.

One of the aspects of the cosmetic and personal care sectors that is rising most quickly is that of anti-ageing products. Many of these are specifically formulated to offer spot treatment on wrinkles around the eyes, commonly known as crow's feet. Virospack droppers are optimized to dispense ​products directly to affected delicate areas.

Hair strengthening and scalp treatments have been in vogue for quite some time. Droppers can be tailored to provide the sort of dispensing required to combat thinning and other problems associated with the hair and scalp. Virospack droppers can be crafted to offer different designs, sizes, and finishes with large intakes from 0.8ml to 1.7ml.

There has been a boom in the beauty industry related to cosmetic products and the best uses for them. Different techniques require different applicators, and simply having a tube of liquid foundation or tint is passé. Virospack droppers can be used to apply products in the right place without using fingers that may contaminate the formula.

Nail polish isn't the only product available on the market for consumers to show off beautiful and healthy nails. There are many nail treatments available and for ensuring cuticles are kept presentable. Virospack offers a vast array of droppers for nail and cuticle care as well as for fast dry drops, for use by professionals or consumers.

The midway point between cosmetics and pharmaceuticals is inhabited by cosmeceuticals. Though these treatments are cosmetic in nature, they often need to follow a regimen similar to that of a topical medication for maximum efficacy. Virospack offers a large range of easy-to-customize classic and push-button droppers that ensure precise drop-by-drop application, ideal for highly concentrated products like serums.
