With consumers being increasingly suspicious regarding the substances contained in their daily cosmetics, brands are multiplying the launches of new generation formulas: cosmetics highly concentrated in natural ingredients, products formulated with very little or no preservatives, probiotics based skin care products, or products containing anti-pollution agents, Vitamin C, or other substances sensitive to light and oxidation. To protect these highly sensitive formulas from external contamination, Aptar Beauty + Home is launching Skin Protect, a patented solution allowing a fully hermetic closure.
Skin Protect is the result of four years of development. Thanks to a piston which hermetically seals the actuator’s orifice as soon as the distribution of formula is stopped, Aptar’s new solution can dispense the formulation without any air return in the tube. "This patented technology ensures a perfectly sealed closure while ensuring easy control when dispensing the cream. The Airless tube is equipped with the Tip Seal technology, which prevents the product from clogging the dispensing orifice. Three ventilation points on the cap avoid the confinement of the air and any risk of surface humidity," explains Aptar.
When it comes to ban preservatives, airless systems are not always enough. According to Aptar, Skin Protect allows to remove or drastically reduce preservatives. The tube are delivered sterile.
Microbiological tests have confirmed the microbial tightness of the system.
Ease of use
Skin Protect also offers the usual benefits of airless systems. In particular, it meets the expectation of consumers to be able to use the product in its entirety and to easily control the dispensing flow. Furthermore, the "Twist to Lock" system ensures a quick and intuitive closure.
According to Aptar, Skin Protect is a perfect packaging for:
Vitamin C skin care anti-aging products
Anti-pollution skin care products
Skin care for ultra-sensitive skin
Available in three sizes (50ml, 75ml and 100 ml), Skin Protect can deliver any kind of emulsions and fluids.
