Artisan Botanical Perfume Wins Best Green Packaging at IPDA

The 2011 HBA Ithe best green packaging for cosmeticsnternational Packaging Design Awards (IPDA) saw a true underdog overtake a global powerhouse. Artisan Botanical Perfume, made by Pacific Perfumes, was awarded the prize for best green packaging, beating out industry giants like Aveda and Mother Earth Essentials.

The Artisan Botanical Perfume packaging is made from recycled, biodegradable paperboard, using no glue and vegetable-based inks. Moreover, the natural perfume is contained in diminutive wooden pots made from beech wood sourced from sustainable forests.

Pacific Perfumes offers a range of perfumes made entirely of ingredients that are ethically sourced, 100% natural and 100% botanical. The New Zealand based company was founded in 2003.

The conference and exposition featured over 600 exhibitors from the cosmetics, personal care, skin care, fragrance and wellness industries. More than 200 products were submitted to the design contest from major brands, niche players and indie companies.

    A great part of this story is that the award winning Artisan packaging was descigned by Michael Peters, a fourth year design student at Massey University in Wellington as part of a class competition to meet Pacific Perfumes’ needs. Nice to think the future of our packaging will be in such good hands.
