Corpack creates compostable sand moulds for Kneipp’s Naturkind bathing sets

Corpack has designed and developed new sand moulds made of biodegradable material for Kneipp. These moulds are part of Kneipp’s Naturkind bathing sets with bath crystals.

The moulds produced by Corpack are made of cellulose-based bioplastic,that is composed of the same ingredients that are also used for paper production. Products made from this certified material are industrially compostable.

The impact on the environment was also taken into account for the pigments used, as these are also biodegradable. These cellulose-based bioplastics are not only derived from safe resources, but provide the same protection, stability, and hygienic factors as other conventional plastics.

Aptar Beauty + Home has created a unique solution in partnership with Shiseido

Aptar Beauty + Home has created a unique solution in partnership with Shiseido

After a full year’s intense work on materials, molds, forms and textures, l’Eau d’Issey the iconic fragrance from Issey Miyake, is now available in a double pack concept named IGO / ISTAY, as a result of the collaboration between Aptar Beauty + Home and Shiseido.

Slender and elegant, the ISTAY flacons honour the emblematic original design of l’Eau d’Issey fragrance bottles which were intended to remain sedentary, unlike the IGO caps which complete them.

Containing 20ml of fragrance and an integrated vaporizer, the IGO capclips easily on and off the ISTAY base, presenting an ideal travel format.

Light and unbreakable, Its technical culmination is achieved in the women’s version of l’Eau d’Issey for which the nomadic cover cap is fitted with a spherical actuator containing a safety device to guarantee a perfect seal.

Both the men’s and women’s IGO caps mirror the color shades of the original fragrances — the lacquer of the men’s iteration and metallization of the women’s — while ensuring optimal performance of the aluminium, leather and silver finishing.

A sustainable packaging for a vegan cream-mousse

A sustainable packaging for a vegan cream-mousse

Kili · g's Face, Eye and Neck Cream-Mousse is a regenerating vegan facial treatment, with a sustainable packaging designed by Marija Mikulskienė from VRS WPI Vilnius, who recently won the Silver Award for Best Design and Packaging iDermo 2020.

The case is made of 100% recycled cardboard and the container is made of plastic recovered from the ocean, owd (ocean waste plastic). Specifically, recycled polyethylene, collected from waters around Indonesia, has been used for the monomaterial jar. In addition to helping to reduce the plastic present in the sea, the fact of recycling plastics in the production of packaging reduces CO2 emissions by 52% compared to virgin plastic.

This cream-mousse certified by Cosmos Natural and vegan has a unique active principle derived from superfoods for greater firmness and regeneration of the skin, with known antioxidant and rejuvenating properties: spirulina. Combined with two high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acids and vitamin E, it stimulates and energizes. The exclusive BIOK LAB Spirulina® that it contains is an extract of spirulina algae developed in an innovative patented form of oleo-eco extraction.
