Cargo Debuts Timestrips for Lipgloss Packaging
|Cargo’s new feature aims to keep products fresh.
To keep lipgloss fresh, Cargo introduced gloss packaging that incorporates Timestrip technology, a tiny strip embedded in the cap of the gloss to keep track of how long the lipgloss has been open.
According to the company, this “best-before” date has become so important that European Union countries recently launched legislation requiring cosmetics companies to have a Period After Opening (PAO) time frame listed on their products.

Open to manufacturers, contract packagers, distributors and formulators, the Rexam Foam Formulation Challenge awards a corporate prize. Formulations will be evaluated by an international jury of industry experts.
“In the U.S., and around the world, the market for personal care products for infants continues to grow,” said Casper Kleiman, product manager-foam, Rexam Personal Care. “Segment acceleration is helped by elevated birthrates for women with higher disposable incomes.”
According to Mr. Kleiman, parents continue to seek personal care products for babies that deliver the product gently and efficiently, provide value and are easy to use.Rexam’s patent-protected EZi Foamer is designed for effortless, one-hand operation needed by mothers bathing their active little ones. One squeeze of the EZi bottle creates instant, creamy, rich, soothing foam that cleanses well and rinses quickly.
The 2008 Challenge winner was Andrea Frayser, president of Ande Cosmetics.
