APC Packaging launches airless refillable system for sustainability

Published: 14-Jan-2021

APC Packaging’s Airless Refillable System represents an evolution in sustainable packaging for the beauty industry. The patented refillable system utilises polypropylene throughout the entire system and can be used with Post-Consumer Recycling (PCR) to reduce the carbon footprint and environmental impact.

The airless design allows up to a package weight of 75-100% PP PCR.

Incorporating a disposable and replaceable inner cartridge is APC Packaging’s newest innovation towards sustainable packaging. “Innovation is defined by APC Packaging as a solution that must meet several criteria for us to consider it an innovation,” according to Robert Bulla, Director of Engineering & Innovation.

“An innovation must be replicable, economical and satisfy a particular need in the market. Most airless refillable packages on the market are simply a screw off pump branded as refillable. The material selection has not changed, and the materials utilised are not easily recyclable.

"Another issue that we are seeing is that the packaging is not intuitive for user friendly use and reuse,” states Bulla.

The Airless Refillable System designed by APC Packaging’s engineering department utilizes a simple push of a button to release the inner assembly which allows the customer to easily replace only the inner bottle and then easily slide and snap back into position.


The inner cartridge can easily be recycled when a new cartridge is added.  The Airless Refillable System is available in 30ml and 50ml versions. In addition, APC Packaging released a patented Refillable Jar in 15ml, 30ml, and 50ml sizes. Both of these packaging innovations reduce the carbon footprint and environmental impacts.

All innovations developed at APC Packaging go through a process from material selection, design, ease of use and cost effectiveness. APC Packaging can work with you to ensure that your Brand DNA and sustainability requirements are met.
