NYAKIO Opts for Fusion Packaging’s Ice Jar

African-inspired skincare brand, nyakio, selected Fusion Packaging’s Ice jar to package four products in the line. The eponymous brand opted for the 15 ml, 50 ml, and 300 ml jars for the Hydrating Eye and Face Creams with Kola Nut, Giant Fig Body Scrub, and Kenyan Coffee Body Scrub.

“The brand was looking for a large, premium jar that was more upscale than blow-molded PET or polypropylene,” said Lesley Gadomski, vice president of sales for Fusion Packaging. “The range of sizes within our Ice collection allowed us to fulfill this need, and also gave them the ability to develop future products in varying sizes and still maintain a uniform look within the line.” Fusion used FusionMatch Decoration Technology to color match and custom inject the jar closures in specific brand colors to coordinate with their desired aesthetic.

The Ice jar features a PETG base with the option of either an ABS or aluminum-PP combination closure. Available in capacities ranging from 5 ml to 350 ml, the diverse jar is the ideal palette for custom silkscreen, hot stamp, UV metallization, heat transfer label, and color spray or injection decoration.

The brand’s founder and namesake, Nyakio Kamoche Greico, was inspired by her Kenyan family of medicine men, farmers and educators, to create a collection of beauty products made with rich, luxurious, and natural ingredients indigenous to Africa.  Nyakio is owned by Gurwitch Products alongside fellow beauty brands, Laura Mercier Cosmetics and RéVive Skincare.

Nyakio is available exclusively on HSN.com and nyakio.com. For more information on Fusion Packaging or the Ice collection, visit fusionpkg.com.

Mega Airless Dispensing Expertise Selected for New Sun and Skin Protection Lotions from Galderma Spirig

Galderma Spirig, the prestigious Swiss firm renowned for its high quality skin and sun care preparations, has again selected Mega Airless dispenser technology, this time for its preservative-free sun care brand Daylong kids SPF 50 lotion, its Daylong ultra face SPF 25 lotion, and for the Actinica Lotion, a highly effective medical device with broad spectrum UV protection. It has been developed especially for people who are at a higher risk than others to develop skin cancer due to UV exposure.

According to Karl Klein, sales manager, Mega Airless, this latest selection of the company’s airless and neutral solutions by Galderma Spirig reinforces the supplier’s core attributes of performance, precision and protection.  “Our 10 years of trust with this customer depends on our ability to deliver dispensing solutions that protect their innovative dermatological and dermocosmetic products and deliver very precise dosages,” he said.  “This company is renowned for superior products that protect consumers, and makes nearly half of all sun care products sold in Swiss pharmacies.  We cannot violate their trust.”

The children’s sun care products use Mega Airless’ 150ml Macro Compact dispenser, the sunscreen in Mega Airless’ 50 ml Mezzo, while the Actinica skin care product uses the Mega Airless 75ml Mezzo.

These latest retail launches, sold in pharmacies, were just introduced and are initially available in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, France and the Netherlands.  

Mega Airless’ neutral dispenser design provides complete 360-degree application, exact dosing, highly efficient evacuation and formula stability over the life of the product, without discoloration, clumping or clogging.

Mega Airless’ precision, German-engineered lotion dispensers provide complete neutrality, to protect the formula and extend shelf life.  All-plastic design means recyclability that appeals to customers, retailers and today’s end-users.  Mega Airless has 25 years of airless experience and 30 patents, for unsurpassed value and performance.

Every Mega Airless dispenser is vacuum-tested inline and delivers precision dosing, quick-priming and 360-degree operation.  In addition, Mega Airless’ mix-and-match product family allows customers to customize their dispensing solutions and deliver superior return on investment.

In addition, Mega Airless’ R&D capabilities, state-of-the-art production sites — and global assistance and operational systems — help ensure the success of our clients.

Galderma Spirig, founded in 1948 and now based in Egerkingen, Switzerland, is committed to delivering innovative medical solutions to meet the dermatological needs of people, from children to adults.  The company partners with medical professionals to create advanced scientifically proven formulations. 

With 65 years of experience, Galderma Spirig is now the third largest pharmaceuticals firm in Switzerland and the market leader for dermatics in Switzerland, offering the Excipial, Daylong and Actinica brands.  Its products are sold worldwide.

The company’s all-plastic airless dispensers are designed to protect today’s advanced formulations and natural products for facial and skin care and are engineered for full recyclability in conformation with EcoCert, NaTru, Oko-Test and other international labels – increasingly important in many countries throughout the world.

All Mega Airless dispensers are equipped with the company’s exclusive airless pump that offers unsurpassed neutrality, precise and consistent dosage, optimal product recovery and convenient 360-degree operation.  They are designed to handle a wide range of viscosities, including the most demanding new formulations used in today’s creams, gels, lotions and pastes.

The 100% plastic airless dispensers are made in one location (mould manufacturing, injection moulding, assembly, decoration), which eliminates complex supply chains and reduces the CO2 impact.  In addition, continuous Mega Airless investment in state-of-the-art equipment delivers economic and environmental efficiencies.
