Marketplace: The latest new products and their packaging.
Chanel chose a new concept in skin-care packaging for its new Precision line. Two of the line's caps are molded in black SAN and hot stamped into a recess with the Chanel logo. These caps are then UV lacquered for high gloss, scuff resistance and improved chemical compatibility. A white polypropylene inner complete with a wad is snapped into the cap, which then screws down onto Adflex® bottles and tottles. Alflex material is soft to the touch, and contributes to the look and functionality of the package. Toly Products US
