Aluminium packaging for cosmetics and pharmaceutical products: safety, hygiene and practicality

The world of sustainable and recyclable aluminium packaging is always in the spotlight, especially when it involves commonly used products such as cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Their use, like most pharmaceutical products, has increased significantly during the pandemic.

These products must be safe and hygienic, but also practical without forgetting design. The idea is to combine quality with the very high standards of the pharmaceutical sector, yet with a very strong usability focus.

This is because these are daily products that often support us in our daily tasks. Pharmaceutical packaging world is beginning to take its first steps towards a true patient-centric revolution.

Consumers’ increasing demand for recyclable packaging in the cosmetics industry has in the last few years encouraged many companies to completely rethink their production chain, starting with the raw materials of their products, including packaging.

One of the pharma industry’s favourite raw materials for packaging is still aluminium, which can be recycled countless times, and can save 95% of energy compared to production from raw materials.

The deformable aluminium tubes, for example, are perfect for creams and ointments, and the soft nozzle tubes are ideal for applications in very sensitive areas (such as eye contour) or for the veterinary world.

So why choose aluminium packaging for cosmetics?

Just because it is the best possible packaging solution. For example, cosmetics in tubes, such as creams, ointments, fillers, foundations, lip tints and much more. The deformable aluminium tube is completely recyclable and can be used as packaging for many cosmetics sold in pharmacies.

The choice of sustainable packaging is therefore the first step towards a complete ecological transformation, far from the greenwashing strategies that have often been used for rebranding or new product launches in the last few years.

A truly green choice also includes conscious packaging, because nowadays it can no longer be considered a simple element that comes with a product, but a purchasing lever as well as a powerful marketing tool when purchasing dermo-cosmetic products in pharmacies.

Packaging must embody brand or product values, be recognised and be distinctive on the shelf. This requires a real strategy. For years Favia has been committed to helping its customers identify the best packaging strategy with sustainable and valuable choices.
