Luxury and convenience

The product itself feeds the skin with intensive moisture. To convey this effect, a special tactile surface with a soft touch varnish is used. This gives customers that pleasing feeling of smooth skin. The black basic colour on the folding carton reflects high quality, luxury and elegance and makes the ampoules, which are printed in different colours, appear in a perfect light. Blind embossing of the ampoule on the front panel and the Babor logo support this effect. This solution has been received exceedingly well by consumers, and demand from the retail trade is correspondingly high.
High convenience is provided inside the folding carton. Its lid is hinged with a lifting mechanism. The hinged insert protects and holds the products and when the box is opened the ampoules are raised, allowing for easy and comfortable access. The mono-material is cartonboard – glued from one piece. With the soft touch varnish, no film lamination is needed.

Jury comments

Weirdly enough, this is the third winner that features ampoules/vials as its product delivery. However, the product content is about luxury and skin care, about self indulgence. The pack surface has a soft touch finish which in turn tends to indicate the smoothness of skin that can be achieved by using this product. The colours also suggest premiumness. When you open the pack the ampoules rise within the packaging for ease of access.

Wheel of light
The Lumene cosmetic series displays the “wheel of light” and when looking at the pack from different angles the light reflects the micro-embossing. The packaging design represents light, radiance and nature. The inner compartments hold the products. The inside printing also reflects the basic colour. The folding cartons are delivered as a pre-glued flat blank and are erected when needed in order to save space during transport and storage. All folding cartons can be erected and filled fully automatically. There is no film lamination, only mono-material cartonboard.
