An airless jar with a 'touch-and-slide pump', made for an anti-ageing cream, has taken out a packaging design award.

The Slidissime airless jar from RPC Bramlage was supplied to French aromatherapy company Yonka, and it was given the 'Packaging Design – Skincare' prize at the recent Cosmetique Magazine awards.

The jar is used for Yonka’s new Time Resist anti-ageing cream in both day and night varieties.

Slidissime offers consumers a new tactile sensation while providing effective airless protection of skincare formulations.

The activation of the touch-and-slide pump is "similar to a caress", according to the company.

At the same time, this action causes the internal pouch to start collapsing, dispensing a tailored dose of up to 0.5ml of cream until the pouch is completely squeezed. This delivers an evacuation rate of over 90 per cent.

In addition, the airless system protects the products from external contaminants such as air and UV rays, enabling manufacturers to reduce the amount of preservatives in their formulae and guarantee the effectiveness of the product for an extended period.

The touch-and-slide pump also means fingers do not come into contact with the cream in the jar, while the valve closes after use to ensure air does not enter the pack.

Other benefits include easy top filling in atmospheric conditions, while the touch-and-slide operation removes the need for a seal on the pot.

The airless Slidissime system is available in two standard versions and is certified by Ecocert.
