The manufacturer of primary beauty packaging is extending its range of low-profile caps in North America with the new “PP Slight Cap”.

Providing 17% weight reduction compared to a standard flip-top cap, the new low-profile cap is in line with Albéa’s commitment to lower the consumption of virgin plastics. In line with the recommendation of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Albéa Tubes is committed to lowering their consumption of virgin plastic by 20% in 2030 (versus 2019) by reducing the weight of the tubes and their components.

The new cap will be offered out of Albéa’s plant in Reynosa, Mexico. Designed with a reduced height and a strong eco-look, it is available in combination with extruded tubes.

Reducing plastic use through weight reduction, not only in the sleeve but also in the cap, is a key priority in our responsible tubes roadmap,” said Annia Spahr, Product Manager Tubes at Albéa. “Combined with one of our responsible extruded tubes, the PP Slight Cap offers brands a lightweight solution with a reduced carbon footprint.

The Slight cap is available in diameters 35, 40 & 50 mm and in matte and gloss.
