  • Happier Beauty is Developing a Refillable Toothpaste Dispenser

    News: 

    Happier Beauty, a British eco-friendly dental brand is developing a refillable toothpaste dispenser with biodegradable refill capsules after receiving a Smart Innovate grant of £150,000 ($202,925). 
     
    The brand is on a mission to tackle the tons of plastic waste produced by regular toothpaste pumps and tubes by developing a new toothpaste dispenser that eliminates single-use plastic tubes or pumps.

    About the Dispenser
    The innovative toothpaste dispenser will be made of aluminum and 50% recycled plastic, and has been designed to be used over and over again. The refill capsules are biodegradable meaning the new dispenser and refill capsules are completely zero-waste.
     
    Together, the offering provides an alternative to standard toothpaste tubes that are notoriously difficult to recycle and result in 1.5 billion plastic toothpaste tubes ending up in landfill every year. The brand wants to create a more circular solution to the climate crisis.

    Biodegradable Refill Capsules
    The new toothpaste dispenser will allow consumers to refill using biodegradable capsules. The refill capsules will be sent out to customers as a subscription, along with the reusable dispenser in their first subscription. Customers will be able to choose the frequency of their subscription.
     
    The design will be elegant and sleek, and the dispenser comes in four colors: mint, pink, peach and white.
     
    Founder of Happier Beauty, Faye Wilson, said, “It is becoming clear that recycling will not save us from the climate crisis, and so Happier Beauty wanted to take it one step further by creating a truly circular refillable and reusable solution.
     
    “We are so excited to be the world’s first toothpaste company to bring a refillable toothpaste dispenser to market. Refills are becoming more popular across food and beauty so why not dental care? Toothpaste is a product we all use twice a day but innovation in this market has been pretty slow up until now.”

  • LactaLogics and Scholle IPN to develop aseptic baby food packaging

    News: 

    US-based baby food company LactaLogics has finalised a partnership with flexible packaging manufacturer Scholle IPN for developing aseptic packaging technology.

    The companies have partnered after carrying out a packaging research and development phase.

    The collaboration will involve integrating Scholle IPN’s solutions with LactaLogics’ Gentle-UHT processing capabilities to deliver safe human milk-based products for infants in pharmaceutical-grade packaging.

    This will provide hospital newborn intensive care units (NICUs) with access to shelf-stable, ready-to-serve human milk and human milk fortifiers packaged in aseptic pouches and cartons.

    Scholle IPN business development manager Andrew Lively said: “Our aseptic packaging, especially as it relates to pharmaceuticals, protects delicate products from contamination and outside environmental factors, which is critical when feeding premature infants.

    “The ability to combine this with shelf-stability and controlled, precise dosing delights us as we look forward to the positive impact of our packaging on the lives of premature infants.”

    The new packaging solution is designed to maintain the reliability and safety of LactaLogics’ human milk-based products.

    It is part of the company’s commitment to giving all premature infants access to an exclusive human milk diet.

    LactaLogics co-founder and chief operating officer Chelly Snow said: “Our partnership with Scholle IPN will give hospitals access to aseptic packaging technology.
