Arminak launches dual packaging aimed at saving time and reducing waste
California-based Arminak has drawn on the growing trend for dual packaging by launching its pack for cosmetics and personal care that saves time and reduces waste.

The OMD-10 model holds both liquid and powder separately in the same bottle and combines them together at the point of use. This maintains the efficacy of the resulting product.

This is useful for formulations requiring an active ingredient to be blended just before use, to maximize the efficacy and potency of the product, for example hair dyes.

In addition, using one bottle for packaging two formulations that are blended and dispensed in one cuts down on the amount of materials used, reducing the negative impact on the environment.

Added-value

As well as reduced environmental impact, the company claims the packaging is efficient and convenient.

This is because it saves the consumer the time and hassle of combining two ingredients manually as was the case traditionally.

Likewise, the risk of contamination and degradation of the active ingredient or overall product is therefore reduced as it creates a more hygienic environment for the blending.

Six steps to formulation success

The bottle blends the two ingredients in six steps using two chambers that snap on and fill up with the liquid and powder.

Upon removal of the safety clip, the substances combine and can be shaken to mix thoroughly. After the product has been mixed, the container’s cap can open dispensing the product.

The bottle is made from PP (polypropylene) and has a fill capacity of 3ml.

There are also decoration options available including silk-screening, hot stamping, labeling, and off-set.
