RPC Bramlage supplies AirFree packaging for Ducray’s emollient

RPC Bramlage has supplied AirFree airless packs for Laboratoires Ducray’s Dexyane anti-scratching emollient. The French dermatological specialist is using the patented AirFree Vega bag-in-bottle and Ecosolution airless pump for Dexyane balm.

The AirFree Vega comprises a co-extruded airless bottle incorporating a multilayer pouch with EVOH barrier protection, produced in a single stage process, which keeps the formula intact and preserves its active ingredients. Similarly, the Goya bag-in-bottle provides high protection for the product’s active ingredients, enabling fewer preservatives to be used and preserving the cream’s non-sticky texture, with efficient 95% evacuation from the bottle.

The Ecosolution pump is made completely from plastic, with no metal parts, and produced using over 50% fewer parts – four instead of the 10 typically found in a traditional dispenser. RPC Bramlage said the Vega bottle offers excellent flexibility on production lines as it is compatible with all standard filling equipment and is capable of both atmospheric and top filling with a high speed snap-on of the pump.

The fully recyclable Vega bottle and Ecosolution pump combination has been awarded Ecocert certification. It is certified by COTREP (Technical Committee for Plastic Packaging Recycling), which supports the development of recyclable packaging solutions without hampering innovation.
