Edelmann presents packaging solution "MOVE" and Eco Star film
Hall 4, Booth B17
At this year's CosmeticBusiness, packaging manufacturer and system supplier Edelmann will present the patented packaging solution "MOVE" and the transparent cellulose film Eco Star.
Patented and awarded packaging solution "MOVE"
At Edelmann's stand at this year's CosmeticBusiness, visitors can inform themselves about the patented packaging solution "MOVE" (Micro Oriented Variable Effect), which was awarded the German Packaging Award 2017. Thanks to “MOVE”, the printed image moves without costly lenticular or hologram films. According to Edelmann, this also makes packaging attractive, sustainable and forgery-proof – and at the same time reduces costs. According to the company, "MOVE" is a combination of a cleverly designed and arranged printed image with matching embossing. Depending on the angle of incidence of the light and the viewing angle, a movement in the print motif can be detected. In addition, iridescent colours can be displayed without the use of foil or paint.
Eco Star Film
The Eco Star film, which can be seen at Edelmann's booth at CosmeticBusiness, is visually distinguished by its unique surface gloss, colour and scratch resistance. Because the film is made from the renewable raw material wood pulp, it is sustainable and can be composted in the garden. The transparent cellulose film is vacuum-vaporised with a wafer-thin layer of aluminium. This creates the metallic shine effect. Moreover, thanks to the surface tension of 42 Dyne, nothing is missing in the packaging design: The Eco Star film can be printed in offset and screen printing, spot varnishable and embossable.
GRAFE Group Design Center presents trend colours for 2019
Hall 4, Booth D05
For the 10th anniversary of the GRAFE Color Preview the Design Center of the GRAFE Group takes interested people on a tour through an exhibition of all previous campaigns of the trend colour projects. Also at this year's CosmeticBusiness, the trend colours 2019, which are strongly influenced by the two colours blue and green, will play an important role at the GRAFE booth. In autumn and winter 2018/2019, green presents itself more naturally by losing some of its radiance and being subject to a stronger yellow influence. Blue gets a grey haze in almost all nuances. The season appears in all its naturalness, but at the same time also in an urban grey. Energetic, optimistic colours form the accents. On the other hand, in spring and summer 2019, green will become much more yellow tinted and evokes different shades of vegetation. According to GRAFE, blue will receive a grey veil, which creates an atmospheric look. The season is a contrast of natural and original variations to chromatic and synthetic tones. Translucency and transparency are also highly relevant. According to GRAFE, everything is possible on the effect side, from a delicate shimmer to a strong metallic look and glitter.

For the first time there is a tube laminate with a filling volume of up to 400 ml, opening up new areas of application. The PP laminate developed by Huhtamaki is completely recyclable as a monomaterial (jacket, lid, shoulder) and thus takes into account the ever-growing discussion about sustainability in the packaging industry. The tube also proves to be lightweight. According to the manufacturer, it weighs around 20 % less than standard PP bottles. In addition, the new tube laminate eliminates the need for labelling because printing can be done directly on the material.

Hall 4, Booth F02
The trend colours for the 2019 season ("Sounds of Colour") and the new effect series "Metal Look" will be presented by Lifocolor at CosmeticBusiness 2018.
"Sounds of Colour": Trend colours for the 2019 season
We experience the world around us with all our senses. We hear and see at the same time, the impulses are connected in our heads. In a world of permanent sensory overload, we perceive sensations selectively. In the search for new authentic experiences, this pattern is to be broken. Lifocolor is therefore investigating the question: How would we see colours if we could only hear them? As part of the forthcoming edition of CosmeticBusiness, Lifocolor will present the trend colours for the 2019 season with "Sounds of Colour" to visitors of the trade fair.
New Lifocolor "Metal Look" effect series
The new "Metal Look" effect series from Lifocolor offers metal optics without subsequent surface treatment. Metallic looks are currently in demand – and the demand for innovative solutions is increasing. Finishing processes such as subsequent painting or electroplating are often time-consuming and represent an additional manufacturing step. The "Metal Look" series comprises a master batch range based on a new pigment class. According to Lifocolor, this results in a metallic impression with exceptional gloss. It brings the metal effect directly into the plastic – without painting or electroplating.
Lumson: New lipstick series "Pop Up Effect" with Italian design
Hall 4, Booth E03
Lumson introduces a new range of lipsticks, which will be shown at this year’s CosmeticBusiness in Munich. It is characterised by Italian design and manufacturing. Different shapes, which are unique thanks to the wide range of decoration techniques that Lumson can offer to his customers: from screen and tampo printing, to hot stamping, offset and the brand new Pop Up technique. The customer can totally customise his lipstick: close to traditional decoration techniques, there is the new digital printing called by Lumson "Pop Up Effect". This technique allows to perfectly reproduce the decoration on each component, without any variation in colour and thickness – normally present in traditional decoration techniques. Another benefit for consumer is the pleasant soft touch effect felt while taking into his hands a product decorated with pop-up effect, as he can really feel the image under his fingers and follow the lines of the graphics represented. Through Pop Up, it’s possible to obtain a final embossed effect on the decoration, through a dedicated optional passage of thick clear finishing – that can be either glossy or matt.
Pirlo Tubes: Tuben^exp. – the tube market discovers individualisation
Hall 3, Booth B04
In the cosmetics industry, consumers want to be regarded as individuals. This need can be met by means of individualised packaging. So far, however, this has hardly been possible: The effort to produce individualised packaging designs for a single product was too great. This problem also existed on the tube market. A first step towards individualisation was made possible by digital printing, which allowed greater flexibility in terms of design options. Pirlo Tubes has set itself the task of offering a new level of individualisation. If one now speaks of individualisation, one distinguishes between unique and personalisation. According to Pirlo Tubes, up to five million unique designs are generated from a single seed file. In the case of personalised tubes, the designs are made up of various elements that can be varied with one another. In both cases, according to the packaging manufacturer, individualised designs are combined with static elements. The possibilities are almost unlimited due to individualisation, since each additional variable increases the number of different designs many times over. At CosmeticBusiness 2018 Pirlo Tubes will show how the company implements individualisation.
Quadpack: Powder Spray – ground-breaking packaging for dry formulas
Hall 1, Booth B05
Due to the trend towards water-free cosmetics, dry formulas are also becoming increasingly popular. Yonwoo's powder spray from Quadpack has been developed for a variety of powder formulas for skin care, make-up and perfumery. In cooperation with bottlers, the new product was subjected to strict tests. The pump dispenser with high-pressure Venturi nozzle and flexible, wide delivery tube dispenses the powder evenly in a targeted spray. The travel-friendly on/off locking system ensures safe transport. With its flush design, the powder spray can be adorned according to the brand image. The packaging for dry formulas will be presented by Quadpack at CosmeticBusiness 2018.
RPC Bramlage: Everything in the XL range – including user-friendliness
Hall 3, Booth D08
The new XL5 airless pump from RPC Bramlage, which will be on display at this year's CosmeticBusiness, is characterised by several advantages: It is designed for larger dispensing systems and is particularly user-friendly. The XL5 pump is suitable for a range of commercial applications, such as hair care and spas. On the other hand, it can be used as a family pack or for multi-product promotions in the field of body care. The pump can be mounted on the 500 ml Vinci AirFree® bottle. In addition, it can be combined with bottle formats that hold up to 1,000 ml. The dispensing unit is 5 ml. This means that the user always has exactly the desired product quantity. Another advantage is the high efficiency of the Vinci bottle. Thanks to the patented AirFree® technology, up to 90 % of the product volume is effectively available in combination with the XL5 pump. The dispenser system has an ergonomic mould for easy and convenient product retrieval. In addition, the large-format cylindrical bottle provides stability during use. According to the manufacturer, this is an advantage especially for highly viscous products – for hair and body care, among other things. Furthermore, the contents never come into contact with metal. This avoids the risk of deterioration of product quality caused by oxidation. An integrated locking mechanism makes the XL5 pump particularly safe for transport.
