The Best Things Come in Small Packages

A study by Euromonitor highlights the tendency to use small containers for cosmetics and personal care products in Latin America.

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

In order to reach all segments of the market, companies in the personal care and beauty sector are packaging their products in smaller containers and making them cheaper, keeping the quality of the product the same.

Miguel Ángel Jop, chairman of the Committee on Cosmetics at the Guatemalan Association of Exporters (Agexport), agrees with the view that the trend is going that way.

For consumers with greater purchasing power, "organic products are those that are most in demand," said Jop.

Another trend pointed out by the Euromonitor report is that "products for baths and showers are a mature category which grows along with the increase in the population."

Biodegradable Packaging for Greasy Products

A new type of biodegradable container has been developed for products containing liquid or solid fat which prolongs the shelf life of the food.

From a statement issued by the Costa Rican Foreign Trade Promotion Office (Procomer):

Biomat research group at the University of the Basque Country, has developed a new biodegradable packaging for fatty products, both liquid and solid, made from agro-industrial by-products, thereby contributing to sustainable consumption of raw materials and by-product recovery.
