Cosmetic Gel Packaging Solutions
Liquipak was contracted by a customer in the cosmetic industry to co-engineer cosmetic gel packaging of single use sample packets of a cosmetic gel. Our in-depth material and process knowledge allowed us to develop a more esthetic seal for these cosmetics packets.
Per customer specifications, a package configuration was developed and the necessary tooling was fabricated. Filling utilized our vertical form-fill-seal packaging equipment and plastic and foil laminated packaging film. The packets, which measured 4-1/2″ in length by 2″ in width had a filled weight of 7.5 g (± 0.5 g), and were produced in a quantity of 25,000 for that initial production run.
The packaging film was surface printed and had an abrasion resistant UV coating applied. These packets featured a side spout configuration with a tear notch and a lot code. Our quality procedures include digital test stand compression testing, digital gram-scale weigh testing, component and batch traceability, labeling and product accountability, and AQL final inspection.
Liquipak understands the importance of quality and high standards. We are an FDA registered medical device repackager and follow cGMPs. Our ISO 9001:2015 certification ensures that we continually work toward high quality and customer satisfaction. In addition, we maintain our own internal quality system requirements.
