Quadpack introduces the first caps of its patented full-wood family
Wood is technically challenging. A natural material with a well-known elasticity and water permeability, it’s almost impossible to be used as a beauty packaging component without a plastic insert. Until now. Quadpack Wood faced the challenges and, after years of research, is launching Woodacity®, a patented full-wood solution that matches sustainability with innovation. The first members of the family are three monomaterial caps for fragrance and skincare.
Quadpack Wood’s expertise was essential in such an ambitious project: being a leader in wood components for cosmetics, it has the best minds and equipment required for the challenge. A team of designers, engineers and technicians investigated the material in different conditions, shapes and combinations to allow it to have the same functional properties and stability than plastic. Woodacity® is the result of many steps, starting with storage in controlled conditions to drying, shaping and lacquering.
“Woodacity® is a project that seemed impossible a few years ago, and it’s now a reality. It’s a full wood innovation that brings sustainable added-value to beauty brands,” celebrates Pierre-Antoine Henry, Quadpack’s Head of Categories.
Discover the first members of the Woodacity® family:
Solo Snap: A globally patented snap-on cap with a unique pattern of interior ribs, Solo Snap provides safety closure to the formula with a ‘click’. It is made in Europe with wood sourced from sustainably-managed forests.
Solo Push: A friction fit cap with a unique pattern of interior ribs, Solo Push provides safety closure to the formula with a smooth gesture. It is made in Europe with wood sourced from sustainably-managed forests.
Solo Turn: A full-wood thread cap with no plastic insert, it’s a perfect match with Regula Glass. It is made in Europe with wood sourced from sustainably-managed forests.
New developments are on the way, including Quadpack’s own Q-line products that will have full-wood versions available. “Woodacity® is a new way of looking at wood innovation. Our goal is to have our wood products to be either monomaterial, refillable or easily disassembled,” says Henry.

Beauty steps for wellbeing
Social distancing, self-quarantine and remote working are all part of everyday life for many of us and consumers are prioritising their emotional and physical health. To elevate the wellbeing experience, Quadpack invites brands to find out how accessories can be the perfect complement to their beauty products.
A clean and safe solution for formula protection
All beauty experts know that a successful product is the combination of a great formula and the right packaging. Airless packaging meets the challenge by combining all these possibilities in one pack, thanks to a dispensing system where the formula is never in contact with the air before application.
The best discoveries come in small packages
As a global provider for fragrance, skincare and make-up packaging, Quadpack has created three discovery sets that offer all the pampering elements that will help stimulate consumers’ good feelings. Combining trends like personalisation, small dosage, sustainability and cleanliness, these packs are an invitation to take a sensory journey.

On a roll with Quadpack's fragrance vials
We all know the feeling. We are stuck in traffic or leaving the gym, and need a quick hit of our favourite fragrance or essential oil.

Quadpack’s range of glass roll-on fragrance vials look great and provide a sensory experience.

The Feel Good Factor – Packaging concepts for new textures
It seems like the dark ages when we only talked about ‘creams and colognes’.

The high-end tube made of 100% recycled plastic
Post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic makes a lot of sense. It uses raw materials made of plastic waste, reducing landfill and pollution of our streets and oceans. It uses less energy to produce, even considering collection, recycling and remanufacture. And when it takes the shape of a Quadpack tube, its performance is second to none.
