Aptar Beauty + Home has proudly collaborated with Dermalogica to be the first prestige skincare brand to launch their cleansing line using Aptar’s fully recyclable mono-material pump called Future. Dermalogica has integrated this innovative Aptar solution for their cleansing range – Special Cleansing Gel, UltraCalming Cleanser, and Clearing Skin Wash.

“We are very proud that our partner, Dermalogica, has chosen to support our journey to a more circular economy by selecting our fully recyclable, mono-material, and eCommerce capable solution for their upcoming skincare launch,” shares Beth Holland, vice president of Global Sustainability, Aptar.

In developing the concept for Future, Aptar’s experts turned to recognized eco-design principles that promote design decisions that help reduce the environmental footprint of the product. One example, which promotes recyclability, is designing dispensing products from mono-materials. Traditional pumps may contain different materials, including metal components that can, in some cases, impact the recycling process. Because this Future pump is made from Polyethylene (PE) only, which aligns with the most common materials used to make bottles, PE and Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), the complete packaging, including pump and bottle, are more efficiently recycled.

In line with Dermalogica, Aptar believes that the packaging industry must actively work toward a circular economy. This Aptar innovation highlights our pledge to reduce environmental impact and our commitment to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy for our 2025 global goals.

“The stakes have never been higher for the health of our planet,” says Aurelian Lis, Dermalogica’s chief executive officer. “As the industry leader, we have both an opportunity and a responsibility to impact positively, not just in professional treatment rooms and on our customers’ skin, but also the environment. Being the first prestige skincare brand to incorporate these mono-material pumps is a significant way we can create cleaner earth for future generations.”

Aptar’s Future pump received multiple industry certifications

The Future pump has received multiple industry certifications and earned recognition from the Association of Plastics Recyclers Meets Preferred Guidance Program and RecyClass. A cross-industry initiative focused on harmonized recyclability and from Cyclos-HTTP (the institute for Recyclability and Product Responsibility). Since this pump is produced at our International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) certified manufacturing site, this solution can be made using ISCC accredited material.

Another important feature of the Future pump’s innovative design is an incorporated, easy-to-use on/off locking system and a 360° degree actuator. The locking system has a ring that opens or locks the pump with an accompanying double-click sound. The 360° degree rotator allows to orient the actuator freely. Brands can choose from several different ring colors for customization. This modern take on closure design also renders Future compliant with the rigorous Amazon ISTA 6 protocol. Designed for eCommerce, Future’s ISTA 6 compliance ensures that the pump withstands the risks associated with transport and distribution network pressures and necessitates less protective carton and paper packaging.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
