Silgan Dispensing, a global leader in the design, development and distribution of highly engineered pumps and sprayers in the home, health and beauty markets, will be showcasing a range of products at this year’s Luxe Pack New York, including its suite of dispensing solutions featuring post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic.

Silgan Dispensing’s PCR products help brands better meet their sustainability initiatives, while also addressing this growing consumer need. Silgan Dispensing is one of the first to launch dispensing products (dispensers, trigger sprayers and closures) with PCR, enabling brand owners to meet their commitments to utilise more PCR in their packaging.

The company’s SD®200 2cc personal care dispenser is now available with more than 55 percent of the plastic from the recycle stream, and the company has launched closures made with nearly 100 percent PCR.

“From the board room to the shopping aisle, sustainability is a top priority for brands and consumers alike,” said Brinder Gill, senior manager, global beauty category development. “PCR gives our customers another layer of sustainability to their offerings – something that’s increasingly important across all markets.”

According to a 2017 study, 37 percent of millennials check packaging labels for sustainability – more than any other generation. Silgan Dispensing’s new PCR products will help alleviate the challenges expressed by its customers around this increasingly important issue.

“Driven by the consumer desire for more premium and natural environmentally friendly options, the beauty category is rapidly evolving, and packaging has to keep up with this evolution,” said David Keegan, director, beauty and personal care marketing. “Continuing innovation in premium aesthetics, improved user experience and more sustainable options will give brand owners and consumers more choices than ever.”

Silgan Dispensing also will be featuring two of its latest cosmetic dispensers, Aria® Luxe and Lyric™. Building on the company’s successful Aria® cosmetic dispenser, Aria® Luxe meets consumers’ expectations of luxury through sensory cues, such as metallic finishes, a secure locking mechanism and a comfortable finger groove. The company recently partnered with Ogee on the launch of their Seeds of Youth Serum, which features Aria® Luxe in shiny gold. Featuring Silgan Dispensing’s newest skin care technology, Lyric™ is designed specifically for highly customised and prestige products. Offering a thinner profile, more dosage options, superior pump performance and a customisation platform – Lyric™ is suitable for brands who wish to tailor the dispensing experience for their consumers.
