Thinking outside the box
Our packaging technologists and strategic buyers challenge the status quo, sourcing innovative and sustainable beauty packaging solutions from across the globe. We offer everything from simple over-labelled PET bottles to custom-designed and completely bespoke tooled components while giving guidance around meeting sustainability goals.
Support with tooling projects
THG Labs Packaging team are experienced with tooling a variety of beauty componentry in many different materials. We work closely with suppliers to deliver tooled components which fit our customers’ requirements while also ensuring they are functional and compatible with your formula.
The Packaging team use their knowledge and expertise to create a test plan for a pack to ensure compatibility, functionality & safe transit. Using our in-house testing lab, we conduct industry standard compatibility & transit tests, but also develop bespoke testing as required.
THG Labs can support on the reporting of legislative requirements & brand sustainability targets. Using a component specification system developed internally, we record granular material and weight data which we convert into charts and reports.
Design for Sustainability
“We have an extensive knowledge base in sustainability which enables us to critically assess beauty packaging options to help inform brands of the right decision. Our Packaging team follow established design for recyclability guidelines (RecyClass, UK Plastics Pact etc.) to categorise packaging in a RAG format with recommendations for easy interpretation. Lifecycle assessment software helps us model the environmental impact of any piece of packaging.”
