Spectra Designs New Bottle for Skin Care Brand Pure Lakes

Spectra Packaging has designed new eco-friendly bottle for natural skin care brand Pure Lakes.

The company used biopolymer polyethylene terephthalate (PET) to produce the new tubular design bottle for Pure Lakes.

The new bottles have been two pass printed in multiple variants to be used for a range of personal care products produced by Pure Lakes.

Featuring advanced shallow screw caps, the new bottle is available in 50ml, 100ml and 250ml capacity options.

Spectra field sales representative Alex Beveridge said: “We've seen increasing numbers of customers looking for more responsible ways to package their products and Pure Lakes environmental credentials have proved an excellent fit for this genuinely sustainable material.”

Pure Lakes owner Gareth McKeever said: “It would have proved difficult to move the business forward in the direction we wanted without the support, advice and flexibility Spectra provided.

 Spectra produces biopolymer materials by using ethanol from the sugarcane waste, while the conventional polymers include fossil-based raw materials such as oil or natural gas.

The renewable sugarcane is said to capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, enabling to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

According to Spectra, the biopolymers produced by the company are totally recyclable and offer a direct replacement for standard plastics.

In June, Spectra started expansion work at its manufacturing facility in Suffolk, UK.

The company said groundwork foundations have been set for new steel structures at its 17.4-acre site.

Building work is expected to be completed by the end of this year and the company plans to start the facility's operations by the end of April 2018.
