In order to address the growing demand for mini- and single-dose products by brands and consumers, Arcade Beauty has opened new a full-service workshop at its Biopack factory in Val de Reuil.
“Mini and single-use products have become a must-have of modern life. Practical and hygienic, they are consumer favorites for beauty-on-the-go, for travel, sports or the office. For brands, they are an ideal way to introduce consumers to a new perfume, make-up or skincare product under the best conditions and for very low cost,” explained Carl Allain, the Group’s Europe General Manager.
The new facility has an ISO-standards clean room - a controlled atmosphere with pressurized and filtered air - equipped with new machinery. This space will be used solely for the filling of cosmetic doses. The new equipment can fill tubes, including mascara; jars, bottles, airless and pumps; and other mini-product and single-dose applicators.
"Thanks to this investment our customers will be able to fill cosmetic doses in sachets, in handout cards, gift packs and, of course, with any type of decoration desired," added Arcade Beauty in a statement.
In addition, Arcade Beauty plans to make additional investments this year to ensure storage, washing and other areas are in compliance with the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for the packaging of OTC products.
Based in New York City and Paris, Arcade Beauty offers a wide array of sampling technologies across all beauty categories. Its product portfolio includes applications for direct mail, magazines, in-store and promotions as well as saleable products. Arcade Beauty has manufacturing facilities throughout North America, South America, Europe and Asia.
