    Long-term value with an innovative strategy

    After the acquisition through Sulzer and the re-establishment of the management team GEKA is currently undergoing a phase of transformation and is steadily working on providing an ideal service to their customers: Speed-to-market in its best performance. Since February, the team worked on a new strategy and now we are proud having defined our corporate vision.

    The strategy was developed using the method for strategy and target setting Hoshin Kanri, translated from Japanese meaning “compass”, which integrates all the managers apart from the top-management into the process and strengthens the team spirit. Here the objectives are cascaded and aligned cross-functional across all hierarchy levels. We as a company want to involve our employees in the process of developing a strategy; leadership competences and self-development but especially the sense of identification with the company and their goals are the logical consequences. Therefore, there are no further obstacles for a continuous improvement: We stay best in class and guarantee a maximum of agility.

    In this context, we want to thank our colleagues Peter Somos and Max Brandt from UMS Consulting. They supported us redefining our goals and our focus and bringing GEKA to an even better way.

    We presented our new collection "urbanHEAT" at Cosmopack in Bologna 2018. With glittering eyes and drew-fresh skin, this trend for spring/summer 2019 reflects the energy-charged heat of pulsating city life.

    Liquid eyeshadow is applied easily with our ergonomically shaped 1K flocked applicator classicLIPS, that distributes the formula streak-free for godly precision. Eyelids get shaded with this metallic texture in mesmerizing red, giving your eyes incredible luster and shimmer! The glamourous flip flop lacquering on the cap gives the heavy-walled 4-edged packaging with its 2K wiper the final touch.

    The brand-new mascara brush lashDIVINE is our star within our portfolio of molded brushes and is manufactured with our 2K Sandwich technology. With alternate rows of shorter and longer bristles, this brush is conceptualized for extreme volume and its bristles on the tip give an extra push-up effect and accentuate tiny lashes just by ease. The packaging is molded in a special blue masterbatch, which shimmers and changes color depending on the incidence of light for an eye-catching finish at the POS.

    The second mascara includes our tropicalEYES twisted wire brush made of brand-new sunshineFIBER for a make-up finish in one stroke. The fiber's extraordinary sun-shaped cross-section contains a high number of reservoir zones between the sunrays, allowing maximum lash delivery of bulk to create a stunning, ultra-voluminous look. Deep green lacquered packaging reflects the impulsive city nightlife. With fluorescing silk screen printing, it reveals its real beauty only when placed under a black light.

    The trendy mini packaging with gradual lacquering in tropical shades and vibrant pink silk screen printing is an eyebrow product that works magic on brows. The conical browDREAM brush with its pointed tip is ideal for accentuating the brow shape, filling and defining the brow contour. Due to the properties of extraordinary sunshineFIBER, you achieve the perfect frame in a 1-step finish.

    Create a luscious wet lip finish with this fluorescent pink gloss and be a real eye-cater in the night club. Our flexible 2K applicator flexiKISS adapts gently to the shape of the lips for an even application. Its stable core ensures precise application, while the softer outside gently strokes and pampers lips. The cap is marble-molded in the colors of daybreak's first light and every part is unique.

    The new, precious aluminum standard packaging for mascara is decorated in the most minimal black, includes two weights its metal cap and achieves a high-quality character due to the heaviness its click-close system. The precisely shaped twisted-wire brush volumeDESIGNER provides ultra-volume and gorgeous definition. The innovative sunshineFIBER serves as real volume booster – a fiber for maximum volume with minimum effort. GEKA has a patent pending combination of mascara brushes and sunshineFIBER.

    A midnight blue pouch with high-gloss surface allows you to be the star within your Saturday night plans, while these blotting papers remove annoying shine or oil from your skin after a hot club night. Scented with delicate water lilies, they leave you with a matte complexion without ruining your make-up.

    Mascara made in Germany - Design, quality and innovation

    Time is money, and the world of beauty is no exception to this rule. Before a new mascara finds its way into the stores, it goes through an extensive development process. Although they may look similar, all mascaras are different. Eyelashes are individual, and different cultures prefer different styles. http://bit.ly/2FiEraw

    So far, mascara brush prototypes have been produced from a hard plastic material using a 3D CAD (computer-aided design) drawing. This could take up to 18 weeks because the manufacturer had to make a drawing, create visual patterns through 3D printing, adjust the drawings to customer needs, and create a pilot tool for the injection molding process. For every single mascara bristle, a small hole – called a cavity – needed to be milled into the injection mold. With the prototype, customers had the opportunity to evaluate the brushes visually. However, the bristles were too stiff to actually test them under real conditions. Further, the production process took a long time and was expensive.

    Awarded product

    The tip design guarantees a smudge-free application with major volume and easily reworking of upper and lower lashes. The packaging appears gracefully with its gradual lacquering from black to seductive red.

Voluminous mascara on the upper lashes makes them noticeably stick together, framed by sharply defined brows. Velvety lips in matte terracotta with a light touch of creamy peach complete this high impact look.

    Our brand-new brush persianEYES conjures heavenly mesmerizing lashes and tenderness gets redefined: The innovative two-component EOSfoam fiber with its foamed outer shell is super pleasing to the eye for an ultra-soft application. The GEKA patented SIAM cut creates special volume zones for impressive make-up results. The bottle is decorated with an one-step all-over sleeve in warmly metallic red.

    Our second product is a new eye-catching standard dual ender packaging with shaped bottles: The eyes gets shaded with a blue turquoise tone or a glamorous gold shade for an intense look. The 2K applicator flirtyKISS applies liquid eyeshadow with godly precision. Even formula distribution and streak-free make-up results are achieved by the 1K applicator classicLIPS.

    The lipgloss applicator softDEFINITION, slightly wedge-shaped flatted on one side for even gloss distribution, has a pointed tip for ultra-precise contouring and shaping of the lips. They are gleaming in exciting deep red and the cap suitably shimmers seductively due to metallic masterbatch.

    The next two-in-one product: The brow & highlighter dual ender packaging completes the look. Brows are easily combed, defined and fixed with our applicator beautySTYLIST and its extra hard flock. The gentleLIPS applicator is ideal for applying highlighter on the brow bone. The packaging is a new standard dual packaging that fascinates with teardrop-shaped bottles and a metallic shining ferrule.

    Complete the Persian inspired look with trendy accessories: The wonderful turquoise shiny cosmetic bag made of PU leather is perfect for all types of beautiful things. Gold body tattoos and crystal stones creates a hint of 1001 Night to your skin.

    The Wall

    Our bottle-in-bottle marble mascara won „The Wall“ award in the category technology at Cosmopack in Bologna! The bottle-in-bottle marble mascara consists of two bottles for a high-quality thick-wall effect.

    Flowing marble streaks of three colours of the competition’s trend briefing, characterize the outer bottle. The colours are directly added during the injection moulding process and achieve an additional depth effect. Two colours also feature metallic pigments. Great attention at the POS is guaranteed as the streaks always disperse individually; thus making each unit unique. The cap matches with its silver metallization and the extra big fiber brush creates an astonishing lash volume result.​

    Sweet candy

    One trend for spring /summer 2018: more is more! Wild exaggerations and cute elements characterize this playful look. Vivid pastel shades, shimmering textures and transparent glittery plastics are as tempting as candy, making the trend of delicate pink, fresh yellow and nifty purple tones a really tasty treat.

    One trend for spring /summer 2018: more is more! Wild exaggerations and cute elements characterize this playful look. Vivid pastel shades, shimmering textures and transparent glittery plastics are as tempting as candy, making the trend of delicate pink, fresh yellow and nifty purple tones a really tasty treat.

    Our first product is the brand-new mascara brush lashJEWEL for perfectly separated lashes and generous volume. The two-component EOSdelta2K fiber with its stiffer core and softer exterior surface remains soft but also provides the necessary stability to comb the eyelashes. Thanks to its triangular shape, the edges of this fiber separate the eyelashes perfectly. The packaging surprises with its overall sleeve decoration combined with a 3D haptic effect.

    pureSENSATION - our brand-new star within our portfolio of molded brushes. GEKA’s patented 2K Moltrusion® process creates extremely filigree and flexible bristles that sit tightly and securely on a stable, thin core. The tapered shaped bristles ensure improved eyelash separation. This brush was designed to give the lashes an exceptional volume-enhancing effect with infinite lengthening and immediate curling. The cap fascinates with an eye-catching speckle lacquering, while the bottle shimmers in a blue metallic masterbatch.

    Small but mighty - our eyeliner applicator precisionLINER: 19 delicate micro bristles do not collapse or spread for precise line definition. The long center bristles are surrounded by shorter ones for maximum precision. That ensures a smooth application and the product is easy to use. Our cute little cigar shaped packaging looks great with its matte lacquer decoration.

    Our dual ender lip gloss packaging is a real trendsetter: a matte texture for the upper lip and glossy formulation for the lower lip. classicLIPS applicator gently adapts to all types of lips thanks to its ergonomic shape, while flexible and soft 2K applicator flexiKISS allows streak-free results. Its ferrule is dazzling with a marble effect to individualize every unit.

    Last but not least: Our miniPERFECTOR for perfect eyebrows. The bristle configuration of this 1K applicator ensures fantastic combability of the eyebrows. It was designed to comb, define and fix brows in place just by one stroke, what guarantees a convenient application due to its size and shape. The cap shimmers in metallic marble effect for a unique look at the POS.

    The cosmetic bag with trendy holographic effect shines in different colors and provides space for all your cosmetic products. For example for the uniquely shaped non-latex make-up sponge! Use the small tip to contour your eyes and eyebrows and the flat side to blend concealer evenly. Broken or brittle nails? They have no chance against the cute cupcake nail file. Thanks to different grain options, it works magical with all types of nails. Accessorize your look with the cute face stickers in different shapes and colors.

    Brands and suppliers are offering more options than ever, in both formulations and packaging, for lip color and mascara, since apparently, consumers like more variety. According to Euromonitor, prestige and mass brands are continuing to offer more color options in various makeup categories.

    MakeUp in New York: About face

    At this year’s 6th New York edition, about 65% of exhibitors specialized in formulation and full service activities, and were joined by companies in the packaging and accessories sectors.

    In addition to a vibrant show floor, a dynamic two-day conference program drew more than 900 visitors.

    What to look for in high-end packaging

    In the October issue of SPC, packaging industry experts discussed what luxury beauty packaging meant to them in 2016. All noted that it was the fine details that help create the perception of a premium product. Half a millimetre here, a more muted click there, a discreet security detail – all serve to reassure the customer that the product they are on the cusp of buying will, indeed, be worth the extra money.

    When looking for luxury beauty packaging trends, Luxe Pack Monaco is a great place to start. The event returned for its 29th edition to the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco from 21-23 September. This year’s edition was notable for its focus on the latest digital enhancement, as well as exhibitors’ in-depth research into consumer usage, resulting in solutions carefully crafted to optimise the end-product experience.

    At Luxepack in Monaco we presented a new collection called “Blaze of Glory”. This set is dedicated to one of the trends for Autumn / Winter 2017 / 2018 which will be anything but gray and drab! It will be wonderfully colorful and imaginative!

    The brand-new curved mascara brush curlQUEEN gives lashes an ultimate swing and generous volume. Due to the EOS 2K fiber with its stiffer core and softer exterior surface clumps have no chance. This is also due to GEKA’s patented SEPA technology that creates wedge-shaped fiber tips. Thanks to the overall sleeve decoration with a gradual metallic effect, the cigar shape packaging is a real eye catcher, too.

    softSECRET is our new star within our portfolio of molded brushes and is produced using the patented Sandwich process: two different plastic materials create a stable core with extremely soft bristles. Thanks to the harder, colorful brush core the lashes are precisely lifted and perfectly separated, while the transparent, extremely soft bristles reach the finest lashes. The bristles are not only soft, but feature more details: Extra thick bristles in staggered rows and special zig-zag shaped bristles give the lashes an extra upward push while combing them. Bristles at the tip of the brush even reach the tiniest hairs in the corner of the eyes as well as the bottom lashes. Also the packaging is dazzling with its gradual metallization.

    Our new lipgloss applicator beautySTYLIST allows to create thin and thick lines thanks to its special design. It is hidden within our squared heavy-wall packaging amazingRUBY which features GEKA’s patented click close system. Another highlight is the 2K wiper, made of two materials with different hardness degrees: The harder material at the top makes it easy to assemble and gives it a secure hold inside the bottle, against high pull-out forces. The softer wiper lip adjusts to the shape of the applicator –and ensures excellent application results. Strongly defined lips are fired up in violet blue micro-gloss.

    Small but mighty – the new eyeliner precisionLINER consists of 19 delicate micro bristles which do not spread. Longer bristles in the middle and shorter ones on the outside conjure up precise lines. Eyeliner formulations can be applied very easily with a smooth application feeling. The metal cap of this packaging shimmers seductively in rose gold.

    All items are stylishly packed in the trendy rose gold bag by GEKA Accessories. Nail stickers and nail pearls perfect the cool look.

    Green Glamour #1 with endlessDEFINER mascara in trendy woman shape provides lashes with maximum length and volume. The EOS 2K fiber consists of two components: the core is made of a harder material than the outside thus ensuring optimal precision and softness at the same time. The packaging shimmers seductively with its metallic master batch and the intense black, long-lasting formula is the best choice to enjoy summer.

    Our molded brush flexiQUEEN is hidden within Green Glamour #2 and presents itself with a new extra soft material for gorgeous volume. The short bristles enable a great bulk deposit for perfect volume while the long bristles push the lashes upwards. The trendy marble master batch of the cap sets individual accents and the creamy, deep black formula provides a spectacular result.

    Our new heavy wall lip gloss packaging amazingRUBY represents Green Glamour #3. Corresponding to the sustainability concept the cap is made out of renewable PLA material. The 2K lip gloss gentleLIPS with its pink flock and the light rose formula hypnotize the lips.

    A trendy graphic eyelid line in shimmering green is created by Green Glamour #4. intenseLINER made out of polyester fibers ensures maximum precision for an intense look without retouching. A real eye catcher is also the cap with its crackle lacquering inspired by nature.

    The icing on the cake for a perfect green glamour summer look – a cosmetic bag and make up sponge  by GEKA Accessories. The sponge is made of hydrophilic poly urethane and perfectly contours the face with its special shape.

Tube und Applikator sind zudem Gamma-sterilisierbar.

    The long-standing company OEKA Oehlhorn GmbH (OEKA), based in Bamberg, has a bright new future ahead of it. Insolvency administrator Joachim Exner has sold the company’s business operations to the GEKA Group (GEKA). GEKA will take over the Bamberg location and retain its employees. The acquisition marks another step for GEKA in pursuing its growth strategy.

    GEKA, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of brushes, applicators and complete packaging systems for the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries, is the new owner of OEKA, an internationally active manufacturer of plastic and metal components. The merger will strengthen the global market position of the two regional companies from Franconia.

    “Our aim is to create a globally operating German champion specialized in the development and production of applicators and complete packaging systems for the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries,” said Nikolaus Michelsen, managing director of GEKA. “At the same time, we are eager to retain going forward OEKA’s tight-knit corporate culture with its rich tradition rooted in Franconia.”

    “GEKA is the perfect partner for OEKA, both in terms of product portfolio as well as international scope,” said insolvency administrator Joachim Exner, partner at the law office Dr. Beck & Partners, after the purchase agreement was signed yesterday evening. “I am especially pleased that GEKA is going to retain the approximately 220 employees and is even planning to make new hires.” The transition is scheduled for mid-July 2015, and the creditors have already consented to the sale. The parties have agreed not to disclose any information on the purchase price.

    “For us, OEKA is the perfect partner to help implement our plans for global growth and expand our value-added chain,” said Amaury de Menthière, managing director of GEKA. “Above all, we will be relying on the experience of OEKA’s highly qualified employees and the production capacities of the Bamberg location. With regards to the planned growth, we intend to invest millions into the site to upgrade its technology.” GEKA also anticipates that merging the two companies and the use of a single brand will generate synergies with regard to the cost of materials.

    More specifically, GEKA plans to integrate the OEKA BEAUTY and OEKA MED divisions into the GEKA Beauty and GEKA Healthcare divisions. However, the OEKA Tech division will be assigned to the recently founded GEKA company ‘OEKA Tech Automotive GmbH’. It is also planned to give the OEKA executives some greater additional responsibilities within the GEKA Group.

    GEKA is part of the encyclopedia of German world market leaders

    With innovation power and excellent performance towards the top ranking in the world

    Since January 2015 the new edition of the encyclopedia about German world market leaders “Lexikon der Deutschen Weltmarktführer” is available and we are proud to be part again. The book offers an intersectoral overview of companies, which, like GEKA, are medium-sized and have reached an outstanding position on the world markets with their products.

    “German world leading companies stand for quality and technology leadership. These strengths and performance are very often not widely known to the broad public” says editor Dr. Florian Langenscheidt.

    The first copy of the encyclopedia was personally given to the German Foreign Minister Dr. Frank Walter Steinmeier: “The success of German world leading companies results from more than a keen sense for market opportunities and outstanding innovation power. Reason, responsibility and long-term orientation – these are the values, which determine the actions of these companies and stand for their excellent reputation.”

    We would like to take this opportunity to also thank our employees and business partners who have contributed to this success.
