COSMETICS PACKAGING BY GEKA
SUSTAINABLE COSMETICS PACKAGING BY GEKA
GEKA is committed to sustainability – in production processes and employee management as well as at product level. We offer truthful, reliable, and responsible packaging solutions for your cosmetics and beauty products – down to the smallest piece, whether it’s the fiber of a mascara or the cap of a cosmetics bottle, packaging for skincare products or vegan make-up.
COSMETICS PACKAGING MADE
OF BIO-BASED MATERIAL
Our exclusive sustainable brushes for mascara are made of bio-based fiber consisting of 100% renewable raw materials.
We provide wipers made of LLDPE material with a bio-based content of at least of 84%, derived from sugar cane.
We provide thread parts made of 66% PCR-PBT or made of 100 % bio-based materials delivered from the renewable castor oil plant.
COSMETICS PACKAGING USING SUSTAINABLE AND VEGAN FIBERS
The brush is the heart of every mascara. Our claim to create sustainable packaging solutions does not stop at the most basic component. We connect our knowledge of professional fiber manufacturing with our purpose. With greenLINE fiber, EOSgreen fiber, and EOSgreendelta fibers, we produce sustainable, bio-based fibers consisting of 100% renewable raw materials from the castor oil plant. We also offer vegan fiber filaments.
Sustainable printing technology
A more sustainable process using no additional foil or ink, it delivers striking surface finishes for packaging, helping customers achieve perfect brand aesthetics. Shadow printing has 360° design application, for a combination of matt and shiny surfaces. This decoration technique is incredibly flexible, allowing complex customized elements and patterns to be applied to bottles or caps. Combined with textures that create vivid surface finishes, customers can create extraordinary aesthetics that reflect brand identity. In fact, matt and shiny surfaces can be incorporated within the same design for maximum visual effect. When supplemented with hot foil stamp or silk screen printing, the opportunities are almost endless, ensuring uniqueness for any cosmetic.
GEKA COSMETICS PACKAGING: SUSTAINABILITY AT ALL LEVELS
Not only the visible parts of our cosmetics and beauty packaging are sustainable and eco-friendly. We use leading-edge oil purification systems to maximize the lifetimes of oils used in our production process. GEKA also takes great care in its use of water – the elixir of
life – with a closed loop cooling system in which water is circulated to provide sustainable industrial cooling.
At our headquarters in Bechhofen, Germany, we rely on the efficiency of our own environmentally-friendly cogeneration unit to supply both energy and heat.
