A history of innovation shaping the current market
Reboul first started filing production patent for lipsticks in the 1950s, with the development of metal lipstick solutions for Lancôme or Elizabeth Arden, before adding plastic transformation technology to its portfolio, as illustrated by the Helena Rubinstein collection early 1980s. The metal-only packaging solutions evolved towards plastic solutions and casings in the beginning of the 1980s, and soon other product lines followed and expanded, like mini carry-on perfumes, mascaras, metal makeup casing (compacts) and face stick packaging.
With a long history of successful partnerships and iconic launches, Aptar Reboul brings its experience and knowledge to inspire the future of lipstick packaging. Some iconic launches from recent years allude to creations of the past, like the 2010 Lancôme collection paying homage to the 1950s lipsticks style, or more recently the Lush lipstick, the full-metal vintage lipstick re-invented in a modern, refillable design.

Refillable packaging solutions, with standard mechanisms and full packaging available, such as the latest innovation Private Refill
