A superior quality packaging can contribute to the preservation and conservation of raw materials and ingredients, the effectiveness of any given product’s formula, as well as increase the overall sales that a product of this nature will achieve in the open market, since packaging can add significant perceived value to all cosmetic’s products.

In this blog post we will look for the best possible options available and present the cosmetics and body lotion packaging solutions that the majority of consumers prefer, based on our experience.

Airless body lotion packaging

It prevents air from entering the container and oxidizing the lotion. This helps maintain the potency and effectiveness of its ingredients. In addition, airless packaging can prevent bacteria and other contaminants from entering, which can help extend the shelf life of the cosmetic product.

Active and Intelligent Packaging: Advantages

Active and Intelligent packaging, 2 trends in professional packaging that even today have not found universal acceptance, despite the significant advantages they offer.

Food packaging takes on the role of preserving food, thus extending the shelf life of products, while ensuring the highest quality and safety during production and storage.

Smart food packaging further develops the functions of traditional packaging by introducing the possibility of continuous monitoring of food quality throughout production, in order to assess and reduce contamination outbreaks and food waste, while promoting more effectively valuable information towards consumers.

Various food quality indicators have been the core of several smart packaging functions in recent years, but mass adoption remains a challenge.

To this end, in recent years, the 2 following packaging solutions have been created:

Active packaging

Active packaging interacts with the contents of a product to improve its quality or shelf life during storage. A good example is when certain substances are released into the packaging or its immediate environment. Filtering light, oxygen and ethylene can significantly improve the shelf life of products during storage. In active packaging, the active agent can be incorporated into the packaging or added separately.

A good example of active packaging is when a beer is packaged in a plastic bottle. The plastic bottle usually contains an oxygen absorber in the screw cap that extends the shelf life of the beer by three to six years.

Intelligent packaging

Intelligent packaging is a packaging that monitors the condition of a product and provides information about its quality during transport and storage. This type of packaging uses quality indicators to improve the decisions a company makes regarding quality control and overall product safety.

A smart package features multiple functions such as recording, detecting and providing important information about the current state of the product. To make use of this packaging, companies need the necessary technological hardware that will collect indicators such as time, temperature, maturity indicators, air composition, etc.

This technology provides remote control capabilities. For example, we could be able to change the oxygen level in a product without necessarily having the product in our hands.

QR codes can be considered a form of smart packaging too and have been used extensively in an effort to improve user experience and product quality. They have been used as a mean to provide a greater wealth of information or make repeat purchases super easy.

The advantages of intelligent packaging

They help consumers to get better information

QR codes printed on the packaging of virtually any product can help consumers get important information about the product they have just bought. We are at the heart of the transition towards an Eco-friendly society and consumers want to know the environmental footprint of any given product.

By doing so, businesses can offer information about the origin, nutritional values, dietary concerns, etc. to the consumer in a direct and interactive way.

Quality control

The quality of a company’s products is inextricably linked to its brand reputation and success. The primary concern of eCommerce companies is to increase the shelf life of their products while enhancing the aesthetic appeal of their packaging.

This is exactly the innovation that active & intelligent packaging offers. They not only enhance the design of a product’s packaging but add active ingredients that improve the quality and longevity of the product.

Reduction of pollutants and optimal resource management

Optimal resource management, combined with waste reduction, plays a key role in the sustainability of any business.

The adoption of smart packaging maximizes the efficiency of the production line. As a result, the extra cost of waste management is eliminated and those same resources can be strategically invested in other areas.

Another very important advantage is the reduction of the harmful substances certain packaging options have. Intelligent packaging is a sustainable and ecological option, based on ‘green materials’.

How to make scented candles at home: 2023 Step by step guide

They are way cheaper and super easy to make.

Do you want to make your own candles? With just a few steps and ingredients, you ll be able to create gorgeous aromatic candles that will fill your home with breathtaking aroma. Learn how with our step by step guide!

Raw materials and choices

Before you start with the creative process, it’s time for some important decisions! We start with the collection of the necessary raw materials. This includes the wax, mold, wick, pigments and all other necessary materials. Once you have everything you can move on to melting the wax and using it!

Decide what kind of scented candle you want to create

Let’s start with what kind of candle you want to begin with. You can choose from a variety of sizes, shapes and styles. From the classic candle holder candles to the more intricate and elaborate candle designs, such as those in coconut bowls or fireproof jars with lids. Ask yourself what kind of candle you want to create and use that as a starting point.

Pick the perfect mold

The mold that you ‘ll choose will be the basis of your creation, so choose carefully! You can choose from mason jars, tin jars, glass jars and so many more options. Just make sure that above else, your mold/jar is fireproof and can withstand the heat of the flame during the wax burning process.

Pro tip: Scented candles need a lid to maintain the intensity of the fragrance throughout their “life cycle” so it’s best to choose a container with a lid.

Choose the right type of wax

With so many wax types available on the market, it is difficult to choose just one for your project. Paraffin wax has been the most popular choice for many years. It is economical and can hold fragrance oils very easily. However, it is not Eco-friendly and releases a lot of harmful chemicals into the atmosphere.

On the other hand, we have beeswax. The cleanest burning wax with the disadvantage that it is not suitable for making scented candles because it does not easily hold the fragrance oils sufficiently enough.

Soy wax has been a popular choice in recent years as it gives a clean burn with excellent longevity. Another popular wax within the same category, and with similar properties more or less, is the coconut wax. Both are a great place to start.

Pigments, fragrance oils and wicks

Once we have chosen the type of wax, we now need to make the final decisions.

The pigments come in oil or powder form and will help you create unique designs.

As far as the fragrance oils are concerned, this is purely based on your own preference. Also, you have to make sure your wick matches the container width you will be using. If you will be using a very wide candle holder, you might want to consider using 2 or 3 wicks to ensure your candle burns smoothly. Its best to start with a small 120ml or 200ml candle jar, where 1 wick would be sufficient.

Materials for creating scented candles:

Waxes – We recommend soy wax
Candle Jars
Metal vessel (inox) for bain-marie
A good quality thermometer
Stainless steel vessel
Stirring rod
Fragrance oils
Wicks (we prefer wooden wicks)
Accessories to keep the wick centered (such as metal bases for wooden wicks)
Wick trimmers

Step-by-step instructions for your first scented candle

Step 1

Glue the wick to the base of the container. You can secure it with a peg so that it won’t fall or wobble when you pour in the melted wax. It is very important that the wick is securely placed in the center of the container to ensure proper and even burning.

Step 2

Never melt the wax directly! Use the Ben Marie technique instead.

Step 3

When the water starts to simmer, lower the heat and gently stir the soy wax with the stirrer. We want the wax to reach 90 degrees Celsius. The Ben Marie technique ensures that the wax will not go past 100 degrees Celsius, where there is a risk of combustion.

Step 4

The percentage of fragrance oil we use may vary. We usually choose from 6 to 15%. It depends on the use and the size of the room where we want to use our candle in. If we want to have it in the bedroom, 6% oil is enough. In a larger space, such as the living room, we will need more oil (around 10-12%).

Step 5

Once the wax reaches 90-95 degrees Celsius, remove it from the heat and allow it to cool for 10 – 15 minutes. We want it to approach 70-75 degrees Celsius to add the aromatic oils.

Step 6

Once your melted wax has cooled slightly, add all the fragrance oil to the pot and stir gently (to avoid bubbles) for at least 2 minutes. This will ensure that the oil and wax will blend smoothly.

Step 7

Let the wax sit for a few minutes and fill the containers when the wax is between 55 to 65 degrees. Be especially careful not to pour the melted wax into the container too quickly to avoid bubbles.

Step 8

It is important to let the soy wax cool and crystallize for at least 1 day. When it is cool, cut the wick with the wick trimmer to a height of just over half a centimeter.

Common mistakes and pitfalls to avoid when creating scented candles:

  • Using the wrong type of wax. Each type of wax liquefies at different degrees Celsius. There are also differences in the temperature at which the fragrance oil should be added, as well as the ideal spot to add it to the container/jar/glass/mold.
  • Wrong percentage of fragrance or essential oil. If too much oil is used, the burning of the wax may be affected. If too little is used, it will not have enough intensity.
  • Incorrect placement of the wick. It is very important that the wick is the right length for the size of the container, as well as being placed in the center of the container.
  • Filling the container while the wax is too hot. This can lead to the creation of bubbles or uneven surfaces, which will affect the total burn time.
  • Unmolding or burning the wax too early. The wax must be given adequate time to crystallize and set. Otherwise, it may lose its shape or not burn properly.
  • The use of improper pigment. Certain types of pigments can lead to loss of intensity or discoloration over time.

Product packaging: modern trends and solutions

 

Wolfmann, CC BY-SA 4.0 <https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0>, via Wikimedia Commons

An integral part of the promotion of a product is undoubtedly the packaging and appearance of the product, especially if we are talking about retail where product placement is crucial.

That is the reason why many businesses, regardless of their size, are constantly trying to stand out in this key promotional and sales hub. After all, it is the packaging of a product that is the main expression of its image and general philosophy, with consumers in recent years increasingly emphasizing usability, quality and the immediate provision of information.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at 3 types of packaging that have been attracting consumer interest lately, each for its own particular characteristics:

A) Ecological, green packaging

There are many consumers nowadays who, in addition to choosing a product based on its features and usability, they often take into consideration the eco-friendly nature of its packaging as a gesture of responsibility and ecological awareness.

Thus, many companies are now turning to sustainable, eco-friendly options by changing the composition of their packaging to “green materials”. That is why on the shelves of retail stores we tend to come across products using mostly or primarily recyclable packaging, biodegradable or other reused materials (e.g. paper bags, paper kraft boxes).

Usually these packages also carry some special, registered symbols on them that illustrate and communicate their ecological composition and the appropriate place where they should be disposed.

This is common practice for products such as milk, juices, cereals, pasta etc, while other companies are expected to gradually adopt similar solutions. These solutions are aimed at eco-conscious consumers who are aware of the environmental and climate change impacts the production and disposal of a product has.

2) Practical packaging and ease of use

Another particularly popular packaging category is that of practical, functional and easy-to-use packaging. In this category we come across solutions that can be easy to open and close while effectively protecting their contents (e.g. Doy-pack type packaging).

They are highly resistant to damage, stand the test of time, respond to refrigeration conditions, are flexible and generally aim to offer a comfortable and great user experience to the consumer.

Such packaging is often chosen by women with children who usually face a multitude of happenstances in their household and time management is their top priority.

Similarly, other categories of consumers such as workers, singles or couples seem to prefer them mainly because of the fast pace of their lives. Practical packaging solutions are commonly used for dairy products, cold cuts, vegetables, pre-cooked food and even various snacks.

3) Interactive packaging, internet and access to information

In addition to the above options, it is a fact that in recent years many companies have started the digital transformation of their packaging. This digital dimension has the potential to offer, through a smartphone, access to a lot of information about the product in question and is particularly friendly to the new generation of consumers.

For example, a QR code on any packaging can lead to additional information online, link to a social media page or even provide all the necessary information about a current promotional activity. Such an option is not affected by the packaging material at all (a QR code can be printed anywhere), it offers a stylish presentation and is economical in terms of space and usability.

All it takes is for a company to maintain an up-to-date web presence so that the customer can also access this updated and useful content. More and more companies are expected to adopt this model in the near future, as the evolution of technology promises additional solutions capable of offering personalized experiences to each customer.

Candle jars – Beautiful suggestions

Are you looking for beautiful, creative and affordable candle jars for your next candle making project?

Candles have now become the ultimate must-have accessory for any home. Sometimes their purpose is purely decorative, while other times they are preferred for their unique combination of elegance and the comforting feel they offer.

It wouldn’t be a hyperbole to say that people have literally fallen in love with scented candles and use them to make their everyday life more comfortable. They are undoubtedly one of the best additions to any room, party or event. In particular, jar candles stand out from the rest because they have some very specific features:

They are completely safe

One of the most important features of aromatic scented candles is their jars and the safety lid that they feature. They are easy to carry while burning, you don’t need a specific type of candle holder to do so and most jar candles look absolutely stunning even when they are not lit.

They have a longer total burn time

On average, candles in a jar offer a longer continuous burn time than any other regular sized candle, as there is no chance of spilling or dripping.

Candles without a container may not burn evenly, thus leaving unburned wax, which leads to shorter burn time.

They have better projection

The use of jars allows us to use softer types of waxes that can hold more oil as a percentage. More oil means more fragrance, greater potency and overall projection!

In addition, when we burn candles in jars, we usually create a larger pool of melted wax, which will produce more heat and will create a more intense scent.

Let’s not forget that the lid allows us to protect the fragrance oil and its intensity by keeping the jar closed when not lit.

candle burn time improves in a jar

Protect your space

You don’t have to worry about candle drips when using jars for candles, so you won’t have to clean any stains from tables, carpets or clothes.

Reusable jars

The best thing about jar candles is their multi-purpose containers. Simply clean the leftover wax from the jars, wash them with lukewarm water and they are ready to be used again… You can use them to store small accessories, edibles or, if you are a DIY enthusiast, you can decorate any space with them.

DIY Products for eco cleaning

Many of our cleaning products we use almost daily are as harmful to our health as they are to the planet.
It is best to make some of our own products with materials that are already in our kitchen drawers to protect ourselves, our children / pets and the nature around us.

White vinegar
Vinegar cleans about like a simple all-purpose cleaner. All you have to do is mix vinegar with an equal amount of water. This solution will disinfect and neutralize all odors. It is also an excellent material for cleaning stainless steel surfaces.

Apple cider vinegar
If you add a couple of spoons of baking soda to the apple cider vinegar you can make your bathroom (tiles, sink, faucets, floors, etc.) sparkle. Where there is dirt, simply spread some of the mixture and scrub with a soft cloth.

Soda
With soda you can make your sink shine again! Clean it with some soda on a piece of cloth and then wipe it with a dry cloth. It will automatically look like new.

Lemon juice
Like vinegar, lemon can be used to clean many areas in your home. It removes salts and soap residues from the bathroom, while it can be used to give shine to copper items. In fact, if you mix the lemon juice with baking soda and vinegar you can create a mixture for cleaning dishes. Lemon is also a natural bleach.

Alcohol
Alcohol can permanently remove markers from the floor or wood. All you need to do is put a small amount on a cotton ball and smear the stain. Alcohol also effectively removes marks from bathroom mirrors, whether it is lacquer, toothpaste or makeup.

Lavender and tea tree essential oils:
These two oils are natural antimicrobials with antiseptic properties, while they have a subtle aroma. Add a few drops to a bottle of water, vinegar and borax and you will have a powerful cleanser whose action can be well compared to the products you buy in the supermarket.

General cleansing product for the house:
Dissolve and mix half a cup of vinegar and 1/4 cup of baking soda in two liters of hot water. The solution is stored for a long time and cleans windows, mirrors, calcium deposits in taps and ceramic tiles. Vinegar is used to remove grease and mold. For fats we can even use lemon juice. Use baking soda as a cleaning powder, and enhance it if necessary by mixing with vinegar.

Instead of toxic air fresheners:
Use herbs or essential oils because they are herbal products that cleanse, disinfect and perfume every corner of the house and some of them like mint lavender and Louisa are among the best insect repellents.

The best for cleaning are:
Grapefruit, lemon, lavender, orange, cypress, louiza and rosemary.

For disinfection the most suitable are:
Grapefruit, tea tree, thyme, lemon, lavender, eucalyptus, bergamot, louiza.
For shine the lemon, the grapefruit, for polishing the cedar, the sandalwood, the cypress and for the dazzling white the sage.

The best deodorants and fragrances are:
All citrus fruits, rose, geranium, lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus and marjoram. You can use them either in infusions (boil the herbs, drain them and use water) or by adding 4-5 drops of essential oils in a liter of water.
To exterminate cockroaches:
Put baking soda along with a little sugar on a small saucer and put it in the cupboards, behind the fridge or where they frequent.

Another method to repel ants and annoying insects is to pour lavender essential oil or plain vinegar where they frequent.

At our site you will find jars and bottles with vaporizer pumps and pumps in many designs and sizes to store your natural cleaners safely and practically.
