Innovation joins forces with safety, design and sustainability. This is a fitting description of the Touchless® systems, the very symbol of the industrial and technological expertise of the company based in Capergnanica, a leading name in cosmetic primary packaging.
Pioneers in the production of airless systems, Lumson recently renamed this category with their Touchless® trademark, given that it’s based on 4 key factors: 1) inviolability of the formula contained inside; 2) use of a patented airtight closure system to protect the formula from external contaminants; 3) use of sustainable materials like glass, plastic and aluminium; 4) components designed for easy end-of-life separation into different materials.
But what are the distinctive traits of Lumson’s offering? Why should a company choose a Touchless solution?
There are various reasons for choosing this type of packaging: in this article, we’ll outline five.
HIGH LEVEL OF SAFETY
Not only are Touchless® systems synonymous with aesthetic versatility and sustainability, they come with a high level of safety, too. With the special patented HSCS – Hermetic Snap Closure System – located between the dispensing system and the container with pouch, Touchless solutions are unbeatable in protecting the product from the risk of contamination by the air or other external factors that might alter the formula.
2. EXTENSIVE ARRAY OF FORMATS AND MATERIALS
The reason sitting at the top of the list would have to be the sheer variety and wealth of solutions combined with impressive technical and manufacturing expertise. Since 2009, the year Lumson brought the first glass airless bottle to the market, the company has put a lot of effort into developing new solutions that combine functionality, beautiful design and sustainable innovation, and the result is a comprehensive offering catering to the full gamut of cosmetic market requirements. A range that’s the only one of its kind in the market in terms of formats, design and materials (plastic, glass, aluminium) and capacities ranging from 15ml to 100ml.
3. UNWAVERING FOCUS ON SUSTAINABILITY
The versatility offered by the range of formats is teamed with a strong focus on sustainability, by which we mean the use of sustainable, recycled and recyclable materials, as well the adoption of a design concept that, once the product is finished, allows the packaging components to be separated and delivered into the correct recycling stream. In line with this philosophy, Lumson has picked some of its bestsellers and has reinvented them in green options featuring eco-friendly materials (APP Green PE, which comes in 30 and 50ml) and 100% recycled and recyclable materials: APP 355S R-PET (15ml, 30ml and 50 ml); ENVERS 50 ml made from R-PET; and TAL, the aluminium Touchless solution launched last spring, which comes in 50, 75 and 100ml sizes.
4. WIDE VARIETY OF FINISHES AND DECORATIONS
Another distinctive feature of the Lumson offering is the impressive expertise in producing finishes and decorations: customization options that give the packaging personality and character. To cite an example of what finishes can be produced, let’s take glass, a versatile material that’s highly valued in the cosmetic industry. Glass can be enhanced completely safely with new and sophisticated decorating techniques: inner lacquering, for instance, really brings out the beauty and depth of the glass, giving packaging an elegant and stylish look, without coming into contact with the formula.
5. THE PERFECT RESPONSE TO MARKET DEMANDS
Given everything we’ve said here, it’s not hard to understand why this packaging – which has earned its place in common speech as a byword for product safety and integrity – is the perfect response to the demands of both current and future markets, and why it’s already the darling of so many cosmetic brands around the globe.
