THE LATEST IN PACKAGING INNOVATION
L’Oréal’s Garnier brand selected
Mega Airless’ dispensers for its
UltraLift Swirl 2-in- 1 Serum +
Cream anti-wrinkle formula.
The product combines a serum
and a cream, and its spiral, or
swirl, form ensures delivery of
the two formulae in one step.
The Mega Airless Micro
15 mL neutral pump was
selected as part of a larger
swirl filling project involving
multiple products for several
L’Oréal brands, as the pump
works well for swirl filling
because it does not intrude into
the container. Additionally,
it helps protect the formula
and is quick to prime and
permits complete 360-degree
application, exact dosing,
efficient evacuation and
Neopac partnered with HCT
for distribution of its patented
cool tips in Europe and the
U.S. Neopac also expanded its

line, paving the way for new
design options to meet the
requirements of beauty brands.
The Polaris Neopac Polyfoil
tubes with cool tip applicators
combine the cool touch of
the high-glossy, coated metal
tips with ergonomic shapes
and the Polyfoil tubes’ reliable
protection against external
influences such as light and
oxygen. It can be embossed,
hot-stamped or finished with
high-quality printing, and it
is suitable for rich creams and
serums, including concealers,
creams and lip glosses.

38 Wrap Up
Promens worked with Pierre
Fabre’s French laboratories
on a Pierre Fabre-exclusive
package component that keeps
an emollient formula sterile
without any preservatives.
Called the Cosmetique
Stérile, it consists of three
key elements—a unique
manufacturing process of
sterilization throughout the
manufacturing process; a
patented airtight closure:
D.E.F.I. (Exclusive Device
for Intact Formula); and a strict and limited selection of necessary
ingredients in the formula. The A-derma brand, part of Pierre Fabre,
launched Exomega emollient care for very dry and atopic skin,
which required the Cosmétique Stérile technology. To maintain
product sterility, A-derma uses the D.E.F.I. sterile distribution
system, which has no air intake and prevents any contamination of
the formula before and during the product use. Each squeeze of the
tube is equivalent to breaking open a new sterile mono-dose, and
the D.E.F.I. cap consists of four parts, including a supple membrane
that rises when pressure is applied to the tube and later resumes its
position when pressure is released. www.promens.com
