TUBEX unveils smart refill pack with French beauty label
TUBEX has launched a 100% recycled and recyclable refill tube made of a single material – the MonoRefill.
Beauty brand La bouche rouge was the first to adopt the MonoRefill and is using it for the refills in its new perfume range.
The MonoRefill is lightweight, made of 100% recycled aluminium (95% of which is PCR), and is easily recyclable.
A unique alloy designed especially for TUBEX allows the company to reuse aluminium packaging that has already been disposed of and recycled.
The tube is manufactured in a single step using a single aluminium slug for the entire tube.
This means it’s made of a single material (no plastic cap) and therefore much easier to recycle.
Designed for a low environmental impact the MonoRefill reduces emissions, helps to eliminate waste, and keeps valuable packaging materials in the loop.
French luxury beauty label La bouche rouge was the first brand to choose the MonoRefill, which it uses for the refills in its new perfume range.
The brand is known for its no plastic policy and for making beauty products from recycled and upgraded materials with natural ingredients and formulas – so the upcycled, all-aluminium MonoRefill was a perfect fit.
Thierry Bitout, Group CEO at TUBEX, said: “We designed the MonoRefill to provide brands with a sustainable solution for refilling complex original packaging, or as an alternative to existing refills made of plastics or other materials that are hard to recycle.
“Most of the refill solutions available on the market are not circular, and many are not even recyclable. We have seen a lot of interest for our solution in a variety of sectors, including beauty and personal care, and home care.
“The MonoRefill can be used to refill perfume bottles and different types of jars and small bottles. It can also carry concentrates to refill bigger bottles or dispensers.
“We believe many product categories can benefit from our solution.”
