Dermalogica has chosen Aptar’s fully recyclable mono-material pump Future for their upcoming skincare launch. While traditional pumps may contain different materials, including metal components that can in some cases impact the recycling process, the Future pump is made from PE only, which aligns with the most common materials used to make skincare bottles - PE and PET, making the complete packaging, including pump and bottle, more efficiently recycled.

First steps towards a more circular economy

The stakes have never been higher for the health of our planet,” says Aurelian Lis, Dermalogica’s Chief Executive Officer. “Being the first prestige skincare brand to incorporate these mono-material pumps is a significant way we can create a cleaner earth for future generations.

The Future pump has received multiple industry certifications and earned recognition from the Association of Plastics Recyclers Meets Preferred Guidance Program and RecyClass, a cross-industry initiative focused on harmonized recyclability as well as from Cyclos-HTTP (the institute for Recyclability and Product Responsibility). Furthermore, since this pump is produced at Aptar’s International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) certified manufacturing site, this solution can be made using ISCC certified material.

e-commerce ready solution

Another important feature of the Future pump’s innovative design is an incorporated, easy-to-use on/off locking system and a 360° degree actuator. The locking system has a ring which opens or locks the pump with an accompanying double-click sound. The 360° degree rotator allows to freely orient the actuator. Brands can choose from several different ring colors for customization.

This design also renders Future compliant with the rigorous Amazon ISTA 6 protocol. Designed for e-commerce, Future’s ISTA 6 compliance ensures that the pump withstands the risks associated with transport and distribution network pressures as well as necessitates less protective carton and paper packaging.
