Qualipac and Verescence winners of the Luxe Pack in Green Awards Monaco 2018

On the occasion of the 31st edition of Luxe Pack Monaco, the Luxe Pack in Green awards jury [1] deliberated to designate the 2018 winners. Every year the most environmentally friendly packaging solutions and corporate social responsibility initiatives receive recognition.

Qualipac wins the award in the Packaging Solutions category

The award for the best packaging solution was given to Qualipac - part of the Pochet Group - for its makeup holder “L’essentiel”. It was born out of Qualipac’s desire to offer a container that encourages sustainable consumption. The product is part of the Pochet Group’s Responsible Luxury program.

L’Essentiel is ultrafine, lightweight and recyclable. To ensure the product’s sustainability, Qualipac has chosen a bio-sourced, resistant mono-material designed for everyday use. This packaging is also flexible: each section can be simply and quickly individually replaced, thanks to an innovative recharge system. L’Essentiel comes with a "Paletbox", designed to organize all the colour harmonies.

The jury liked the reduced environmental impact at all stages in the product life cycle; each aspect has been optimized while also offering simplified use. "It was also designed for use on the move or in one place, making l’Essentiel more than just packaging, but a real object", added jury member Jean- François Roucou.

Special jury award for Billerudkorsnäs’ Fibreform

The jury were keen to make special mention of the BillerudKorsnäs submission: the Fibreform cap for champagne bottles. Its design makes it easy to remove; instead of the usual aluminium the raw material used - BillerudKorsnäs FibreForm - is a sustainable packaging material made of 100% primary fibre. It is therefore 100% recyclable.

The jury wanted to encourage Billerudkorsnäs for this real innovation and for substituting a material firmly rooted in current practices but taking a paper approach.

Verescence wins the corporate social responsibility category

In the corporate social responsibility category, Verescence won the award for its CSR approach "Glass made to last". It is organized around three pillars: People First, Act for Society & Eco Solutions.

The jury wanted to emphasize the maturity of their approach, which is perfectly organized. The figures, vision and ambitions are carried through to every level in the company - from the shop floor to the general management.

The trophies - bonsai trees, arranged in wooden boxes - were designed and created by the company Pujolasos.

On center stage, the floral bouquet is making its come back

Just like fashion that is eternally being reinvented, perfumery also works in cycles. And the floral accord is no exception. The very essence of femininity, today floral fragrances are less invasive than in the 1980s, as was the case with Poison by Christian Dior. At the end of the 1990s, floral accords were replaced by clean musky (...)
