Quadpack launches a full range of five monomaterial lipsticks made of recyclable materials. The five products, comprising aluminium, polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PET) designs and two refill formats, boast an advanced level of sustainability, according to Quadpack’s positive-impact packaging (PIP) ratings system. A full report is available for each one, based on life-cycle assessments of their environmental impact.
Versatile and customizable
The versatile range offers a large variety of shapes, features and gestures, and can support different types of formulas, from lip colour to blush, concealer and even solid fragrance.
According to Quadpack, their look and feel can adapt to suit any brand identity, using a host of decoration techniques and finishes. For instance, adding a soft-touch effect brings a sensory dimension to premium products.
