Quadpack has launched the first caps of its patented full-wood family. Wood is technically challenging but a natural material with well-known elasticity and water permeability, but until now almost impossible to be used as a beauty packaging component without a plastic insert. Source: Timberbiz
Quadpack Wood After years of research, Quadpack Wood has WoodCity a patented full-wood solution that matches sustainability with innovation. The first members of the family are three monomaterial caps for fragrance and skincare.
Quadpack Wood’s expertise was essential in such an ambitious project: being a leader in wood components for cosmetics, it has knowledge and equipment required for the challenge.
A team of designers, engineers and technicians investigated the material in different conditions, shapes and combinations to allow it to have the same functional properties and stability than plastic.
Woodacity is the result of many steps, starting with storage in controlled conditions to drying, shaping and lacquering.
“Woodacity is a project that seemed impossible a few years ago, and it’s now a reality. It’s a full wood innovation that brings sustainable added-value to beauty brands,” Pierre-Antoine Henry, Quadpack’s Head of Categories said.
