3D Neopac has been honored with two prestigious Star Awards in the categories ‘Innovations Leading to Sustainability’ and ‘Best Branding through Packaging’ categories for tubes housing personal care products from CavinKare and Tata Trent. The awards were presented by the Indian Flexible Packaging & Folding Carton Manufacturers Association (IFCA) in its 2023 competition on Friday, October 27, 2023.

Sustainability at the forefront: Tata Trent Face Wash Tube

3D Neopac's design for Tata Trent's face wash tube stood out in the "Innovations Leading to Sustainability" category. Designed with the latest sustainability trends in mind, this laminated tube has a reduced wall thickness of 390 microns. This design choice results in a significant 23.6% reduction in the use of virgin plastic.

The tube is made of HDPE (high-density polyethylene), a material known for its recyclability. This not only aligns with green initiatives, but also empowers consumers to play a role in promoting a circular economy.

But sustainability isn't its only strength. The tube's design incorporates a hybrid printing technique that combines the benefits of digital and flexographic printing. This allows for stunning graphics, intricate detail and vibrant colors. By choosing HDPE over EVOH, 3D Neopac ensures the tube is environmentally friendly, cost effective and reliable without sacrificing quality.

Aesthetic mastery: CavinKare's Bikers Face Wash Tube

In the Best Branding through Packaging category, the tube designed for CavinKare's Bikers men's face wash caught the jury's eye. This tube features an intriguing blend of screen and flexographic printing techniques, resulting in a visually stunning appearance. A notable feature is its 360-degree hot foil effect, which conveys elegance and luxury from every perspective. This exquisite detail sets it apart in a saturated market.

The Bikers face wash tube is not just about looks. With a robust 550 micron thickness and an EVOH layer, it embodies a rugged yet sophisticated charm. This design ensures product longevity, protection and stability on the shelf.

Celebrating packaging excellence

The IFCA's annual awards recognize excellence in creativity, design and innovation within the flexible packaging industry.

Prasad Sathe, Head of Sales & Marketing, 3D Neopac India, expressed his gratitude, saying, "Our team is unwavering in its commitment to develop sustainable tube solutions that prioritize environmental friendliness without compromising on quality or aesthetics. We're delighted to receive this recognition and remain committed to reducing waste and increasing recyclability, not only in India but globally.
