High-barrier tubes offer attractive protection for natural cosmetics line
Dr. Grandel Elements of Nature's new tube packaging

Dr. Grandel, a family-owned company specializing in the research, development and manufacture of natural cosmetics for the salon and spa industry, has adopted Neopac Polyfoil tubes for its Elements of Nature line of cosmetics products.

Born from Dr. Felix Grandel’s 1935 exploration of the benefits of wheat germ and vitamin E, Elements of Nature products contain Epigran, a multi-purpose active substance concentrate comprised of wheat germ and plant enzymes. Further, Elements of Nature products are made from all-natural ingredients and do not contain preservative additives and/or allergy-promoting substances such as parabens, mineral oils, petroleum components, paraffins, silicones, PEG emulsifiers, colouring agents or synthetic fragrances. To protect these ingredients and guarantee their shelf life, it was imperative, Neopac says, that the products receive optimum protection against excess moisture or oxygen and light. 286619-Dr_Grandel_Elements_of_Nature_s_new_tube_packaging.JPG

Neopac’s entire family of tubes are engineered with the company’s patented Polyfoil technology, which the packaging supplier says offers superior barrier properties, including protection against light, corrosion and high aesthetics due to all-around printing. Neopac’s Polyfoil tubes are engineered to be highly impermeable to organic and chemical substances and protect formulas from excessive moisture or oxygen.

Together with Neopac, the team at Dr. Grandel strategically chose white, brown and green for the Elements of Nature packaging, to portray an image of purity and reliability (white), earth and stability (brown) and all-natural (green).   The decoration was made all with UV-curing printing colors in offset and silk-screen which are solvent less compared to traditional thermic dyes and varnishes.
