SGD Pharma has expanded its cosmetics and beauty range with the introduction of Nova - a lightweight glass bottle.

The primary packaging solution combines the functional and aesthetic performance of glass with a reduced carbon footprint linked to weight optimisation.

The growing trend for sustainable product sourcing – evidenced in the ‘Unpacking Asia-Pacific Consumers’ New Love Affair with Sustainability’ report from Bain & Company – puts environmental and social benefits at the top of purchasing criteria for consumers.

Nova from SGD Pharma enables brands using this lightweight glass packaging solution to be more eco-friendly while keeping luxury and aesthetics of the packaging at the forefront.

The weight reduction is combined with glass distribution optimisation providing better mechanical resistance, as well as a smaller carbon footprint.

On a new 200ml bottle in its Nova range, SGD Pharma has reported an approximate 20% reduction in CO2 emissions compared with the standard Dorado bottle thanks to less raw materials consumption.*

The weight-volume ratio is an important parameter to measure the lightness of glass bottles and the ratio of conventional cosmetic bottles produced by Blow and Blow process ranges from 1.0 to 3.0. **

The new 200ml bottle in the Nova range (brimful volume 215ml and weight of 140g) has reached an extremely low weight-volume ratio 0.65, while retaining the same properties and safety as the heavier Dorado model.

Chunyan Zheng, Deputy General Manager of Industrial Operation at SGD Pharma’s Zhanjiang plant, said: “Nova is the latest innovation from our Zhanjiang plant in China, representing the ‘star’ performance needed by beauty brands of both aesthetics and functionality.

“SGD Pharma has a proven record of quickly addressing changing customer needs and Nova is the manifestation of our ambition for improved ecological performance and reduced manufacturing emissions, making it the optimal packaging solution for 21st century cosmetic brands."

*This number is based on SGD Pharma's estimated scope 1 & 2. This CO2 emission reduction is a result of reduced weight of the bottle, Dorado standard 200ml bottle weighs 178g while Nova 200ml bottle weighs 140g.

**The weight-volume ratio represents the weight over brimful capacity, the lower this number, the lighter the bottle.
