APC Packaging has announced the release of its EAPP EcoReady All Plastic Airless Pump, made from plastic and engineered with airless technology, aiming for a more eco-friendly dispensing solution.

The company provides packaging solutions for the beauty and personal care industry and hopes to contribute to a more “environmentally conscious” solution through the use of durable plastic materials and the elimination of the traditional metal spring. 

“As a leader in packaging innovation, we are thrilled to introduce the EAPP EcoReady All Plastic Airless Pump to the market. This design represents a harmonious blend of cutting-edge technology and sustainable practices, offering our clients and consumers a premium skincare experience,” said Rick Ponte, vice president of project engineering at APC Packaging. 

In similar news, Aptar Beauty’s PZ Twist spray pump was used to package NUXE’s sun spray and tanning oil products last year, aiming towards a more environmentally friendly solution. Apparently POM-free and made primarily from polypropylene, users can twist the actuator to lock and unlock the pump, with an audible click indicating its proper closure in a bid to prevent leakage. 

Caps & Closures revealed its EzySpray Boost, a pre-compression trigger made using 100% PP and up to 50% recycled content, designed to provide an easily recyclable option for sprayable product packaging. The company states the trigger is certified recyclable with PET bottles, 98% with PP alternatives and aims to lessen demand for new plastic.
