French cosmetics and beauty company Yves Rocher will use a lightweight 35mm snap hinge cap Touareg for its new tube range.
Developed by Global Closure Systems (GCS), Touareg claims to offer an optimised weight of 4g and is 20% lighter than the previous version, which has reduced the carbon footprint to 13.8g eq CO²/cap.
Zeller Plastik, one of GCS' plants in France, has designed the closure for personal care and cosmetic applications.
Touareg's matt lid has been designed to feature the brand's logo and is available in various colours to match Yves Rocher's range of products, including facial, hand, foot and body care.
With its butterfly hinge, Touareg offers a one-hand dispensing for enhanced convenience.
GCS claims that Touareg provides an elegant dispensing solution and meets Yves Rocher's eco-design packaging guidelines.
Rocher has developed eco-design packaging guidelines to reduce the consumption of non-renewable resources and promote the production of recyclable packaging. The company has reduced CO² emissions of its sites by 10% a product since 2010.
Founded in 1959, Yves Rocher currently has presence in 88 countries across the globe.
GCS currently offers a wide range of plastic and metal closures and dispensing systems for the global beverage, food, household and industrial, health care, personal care and wine and spirits markets.
With its brands, including Astra Plastique, Bender, Massmould, Obrist, UCP and Zeller Plastik, GCS offers more than 2,000 designs of standard and custom closures and dispensing systems worldwide.
