Colep launches novel aerosol application with CO2

Colep, a leading global player in the consumer goods packaging and contract manufacturing industries, is proud to offer its ‘Natural Foaming Cream with CO2’. The product, which was developed by Colep’s Healthcare Division, is a new, Natrue™ certified, organic aerosol cream which has foaming properties as a result of an incorporation of CO2 into the formulation, using a unique mixing technology. 

Colep’s new and innovative Bag-on-Valve product uses compressed air as the propellant, with CO2 directly added to the formulation, creating a gentle foaming cream. The product is easily absorbed into the skin and therefore creates many potential applications.

Colep recently received recognition for this innovation, with a special distinction accolade being awarded at the recent Aerosol & Dispensing Awards in Paris, which took place in February. The awards formed part of a two day Forum which was attended by over 3,500 industry professionals from more than 66 countries.

Ludwig Bastiaansen, Managing Director, Colep Healthcare Division, says; ”Receiving this recognition is testament to the excellent development work undertaken by the team, which has combined the active mixing process  for food and cosmetic applications, and adapted it for an organic healthcare application. The base formulation will be commercialised in a number of new products to be released in the market in the second half of 2014.”

The Bag-on-Valve aerosol pack brings its own advantages, mainly in the form of extended shelf-life due to the contents being hermetically sealed, protection from both oxygen and light, and in addition separation of the product from the propellant. Furthermore the pack is ideal for travel due to its portable-sized nature, and ‘non-spill’ properties.

This new application not only answers the need for new textures, but combines product innovation, technology, and a sustainable approach, recognised by its compressed air propellant and Natrue™ Certification. 

Colep, a RAR Group company, is a leading global player in the consumer goods packaging and contract manufacturing industries. With a turnover of 543 million euros, Colep employs around 3,600 people in Portugal, Brazil, Germany, Mexico, Poland, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.

Colep Vision: To be the leader in Value Creation, providing our customers with product, manufacturing and packaging solutions, through innovation, technology and sustainable practices.
