Future, a mono-material pump developed by Aptar Beauty, a leading and innovative dispensing solutions partner for global beauty brands, has won two additional awards – WorldStar and PCD – for the collaboration with Dermalogica’s newest cleansing line. Dermalogica x Future was among the winners of the PCD Awards at Paris Packaging Week for the premium skincare category. In addition to this, the partnership is highlighted as a WorldStar 2023 winner in the Packaging Materials and Components category.
A Multi-Award Winner
The accolades follow a host of recognitions in 2022 on the heels of the launch of Dermalogica’s skincare cleansing range. These include the prestigious Formes de Luxe Award 2022 in the Dispensing category and the AmeriStar Award 2022 for Sustainable Packaging, the precursor to the WorldStar Awards. Prior to the collaboration, the omnichannel Future pump won the E-commerce category at the 2022 Sustainability Awards and was a finalist at the Plastics Recycling Awards Europe.
Sustainable and Omnichannel Capable
The awards collectively acknowledge the sustainable and omnichannel attributes of Aptar’s Future pump. The polyethylene (PE) dispensing solution is 100% mono-material, with a fully-plastic engine, and is completely recyclable when paired with a PE or PET bottle.
Future is also e-commerce capable* and ISTA 6 compliant thanks to its incorporated locking/unlocking ring and 360° degree, free-spinning actuator, which helps minimize potential breakage in transit.
A Winning Collaboration
Dermalogica was the first prestige skincare brand to launch its cleansing line using Future, for its Special Cleansing Gel, UltraCalming Cleanser and Clearing Skin Wash. The innovative pump aligned with Dermalogica’s sustainability goals, while being omnichannel and on-the-go friendly. The PE pump, combined with Dermalogica’s 50% PCR bottle, furthers the brand’s circularity contributions through the reduction of conventional resin and the elimination of metal.
Kevin Davis, Packaging Engineering Director at Dermalogica, said, “Aptar’s pump is truly a game-changer in recyclability and mono-material packaging. In addition to its sustainability features, Future’s e-commerce-friendly design is equally important to our brand since we ship high volumes via small parcel.”
Xavier Joseph, Vice President, Global Marketing & Innovation, Aptar Beauty, shared, “The awards recognize that Future answers to market demands from premium brands like Dermalogica. The combination of sustainability and e-commerce capability meets two major differentiating needs in the skincare market without compromising aesthetics.”
