Cosmetics, Personal and Home Care

Use coding to enhance and protect your brand

Package design helps differentiate your product and communicate the quality of your brand.  In addition to imparting important information on the packaging, product codes can help enhance the quality image of your products.  Further, value-added coding strategies can help minimize pre-printed inventory or protect your brand with anti-counterfeiting or diversion solutions.  Videojet has coding solutions to help you get your ideal code on every product, time after time, while delivering the flexibility and efficiency that you need.

Your ideal code

Over 80% of personal and home care bottles, jars and containers are made from either HDPE or PET1.

Plastic packaging includes slick plasticizers which support plastic flexibility but can make coding difficult. Therefore, consider code contrast and resilience requirements and make sure you obtain product samples before you determine the optimal coding technology for your package.

Our expert sales and service teams will help you chose the right coding technology and keep it running effectively on your line.

More print, less cost

Many coding technologies are effective on flexible plastic and paper packaging. While films, pouches, sleeves and bags can all be cost-effective packaging options, managing the numerous pre-printed films for every fragrance, color and product can be challenging and costly.

Videojet has a wide range of coding technologies to give you the capability to print product information, bar codes, ingredients, logos and other information during packaging by batch, line and even individual unit. This can reduce your hassle and costs while increasing your manufacturing flexibility.

Protect and enhance your brand

Defending the reputation of your business and your products is not easy. Product diversion to unauthorized channels and counterfeiting can reduce profits, tarnish brand image and create safety risks for your customers.

Our advanced coding technologies and supporting software solutions, however, can give you the supply chain control you need to help prevent these threats. These solutions can be as simple as using a laser marking system to ensure a permanent code on your package to an integrated software solution that incorporates anti-counterfeiting elements into your codes.
