The packaging conveys the breakthrough formula inside,
through professional artwork and the unique beauty of the
shiny dark silver metallic effect chosen by Elemis known as
the“glass enhancer” technique.

Visual Packaging System Now at HLP Klearfold
•HLP Klearfold recently purchased the worldwide patents
for the InSight visual packaging system from ASG (the AGI
Shorewood Group), with whom it previously had an agreement
to license InSight.
According to the company, the award-winning system
combines printed plastic sleeves and injection molded plas-
tic end caps to produce a very distinctive visual package.
The sleeves are essentially tubes with the shape of the end
caps determining the cross-sectional profile of the package.
The end caps attach to the sleeves using a unique locking
feature. Undercuts molded into the end caps engage die-cut
tabs on the sleeves to join the components together securely.
Packages can be designed so that end caps either lock perma-
nently to the sleeve or twist off easily.
