Nyakio Opts for Fusion’s Ice Jar

May 2, 2014

African-inspired skin care brand Nyakio selected Fusion Packaging’s Ice jar to package four products in the line. The eponymous brand opted for the 15ml, 50ml and 300ml jars for the Hydrating Eye and Face Creams with Kola Nut, Giant Fig Body Scrub and Kenyan Coffee Body Scrub.

 “The brand was looking for a large, premium jar that was more upscale than blow-molded PET or polypropylene,” said Lesley Gadomski, vice president of sales for Fusion Packaging. “The range of sizes within our Ice collection allowed us to fulfill this need, and also gave them the ability to develop future products in varying sizes and still maintain a uniform look within the line.” Fusion used FusionMatch Decoration Technology to color match and custom inject the jar closures in specific brand colors to coordinate with their desired aesthetic.

 The Ice jar features a PETG base with the option of either an ABS or aluminum-PP combination closure. Available in capacities ranging from 5ml to 350ml, the diverse jar is the ideal palette for custom silkscreen, hot stamp, UV metallization, heat transfer label and color spray or injection decoration.

The brand’s founder and namesake, Nyakio Kamoche Greico, was inspired by her Kenyan family of medicine men, farmers and educators, to create a collection of beauty products made with rich, luxurious, and natural ingredients indigenous to Africa.
Nyakio is part of Gurwitch Products.
