Aptar Beauty has added two new aerosol actuators and fine mist spray, with up to 46% post-consumer recycled resin (PCR), to its sustainable dispensing solutions portfolio.

The EuroMist technology is said to be a fine mist spray and is suitable for a wide range of formulas. Its range of inserts allows brands to select the ideal spray output for their applications.

According to dispensing packaging systems maker, the PCR for EuroMist between the fixture, actuator, and over the cap is up to 33%.

The Moritz aerosol actuator is claimed by the firm as a classic, twist-to-lock product that may be used in a variety of industries. It has a wide finger pad and delicate ribbed profile which were created with ergonomics in mind.

The actuator cover is 100% PCR, and Moritz is available in up to 40% PCR.

Aptar said that Markus has a premium matte finish and textured finger pad for a timeless product experience. When used, the softer ribs offer a tactile grip.

The actuator cover is 100% PCR, and Markus is available in up to 46% PCR, the packaging firm added.

The Moritz and Markus aerosol actuators come with a hoodless, integrated twist-to-lock capability that does away with the requirement for an over the cap, in addition to being offered in PCR.

For Moritz and Markus, the two-piece design results in resin savings of 50% and 53%, respectively, as claimed by the firm.

Aptar Beauty North America president Laura Estebanez said: “We continue to focus on our strategic priority of embedding sustainable product attributes as part of standardised practice here at Aptar, as we believe firmly in our commitments towards a more circular economy.

“By broadening our PCR conversion into our spray portfolio we are able to help our brand partners achieve their aligned goals.”

In December 2022, Aptar revealed its plans to realign two of its business reporting segments from this month. As per the plans, Aptar Closures and Aptar Beauty reporting segments will be renamed.
