Between 18-19th​ October Paris’ Carrousel du Louvre was filled with cosmetics and fragrance industry companies from every step of the supply chain.

The show also played host to some trailblazing expert speakers in its #Cleantech conferences, who raised important issues that should be considered to futureproof businesses. 

1. Refillable solutions are bringing new microbiological challenges

Aptar has developed a new refill solution for face care and beauty products called GAIA and explained more about the tests it had undertaken for microbiome risk analysis of airless skincare packaging.

As Patrick Bousquel, Marketing Director for at Aptar Beauty EMEA said “New product; new problems”.​ And while refillable solutions are better for the planet, they bring along a whole new set of issues to consider when consumers are refilling products at home in a noncontrolled environment, such as the risks through cutaneous contacts during refills, and leakage due to lack of tightness in casing from repeated opening and closing.

Aptar said it had worked with various external partners such as consultants and laboratories to test the microbiological safety of this new packaging solution.

Florence Roullet, Aptar’s Applied Sciences Director GMI Beauty & Home detailed the various tests the company had undertaken to ensure the new product was fit for purpose, including one test with a “one minute exposure to ambient air”​ (with an assumption this would be at 500 CFUm/3), along with in vitro ​tests to investigate contamination levels, with a test strain of Staphylococcus epidermis.
