Benefit Cosmetics packs a high-performance packaging punch!

Benefit Cosmetics’ beautiful, innovative, sustainable aluminium cosmetic jars – developed by Roberts Metal Packaging – are shortlisted for the UK Packaging Awards 2023

We are thrilled that our aluminium cosmetic jars – designed and produced by Roberts Metal Packaging for Benefit Cosmetics – have caught the attention of this year’s UK Packaging Awards judges.

To be shortlisted for the Metal Pack of the Year category is a tremendous honour. It recognises the optimal design, functionality, innovation and sustainability elements of our aluminium jars. But before we deep-dive the detail, let’s take a quick look at the context.

The background

Benefit Cosmetics wanted to centre the launch of its new POREfessional pore skincare range around two products – the Deep Retreat clay mask and the Smooth Sip moisturiser cream – with aluminium packaging.

Thanks to our metal packaging expertise and collaborative working style, Roberts was the global beauty brand’s obvious partner of choice.

The brief

Roberts was tasked with designing and manufacturing recyclable aluminium jars suitable for a bathroom environment. Lids and bases would be litho-printed to provide tactility, shelf presence and a high-end look.

Jar capacities of 50ml and 75ml were required initially, with mini sizes becoming available later. The jars needed to be suitable for high-speed filling and to protect the long-term integrity of their contents.

The solution – zoom on design

Our team of experts – determined to deliver on every count – selected the continuously threaded aluminium jars from our SOFTLINE range.

We developed high-quality new inks to achieve fully translucent jars within the design, tastefully finished in a satin varnish. Alongside bold typography and stunning colour combinations, the tactility element means the jars stand out on the shelf and in customers’ hands.

Zoom on functionality

Clearly, the jars and lids are fit for purpose. Their user-friendly design ensures effortless handling by the customer. The airtight jars protect against leakage and spoiling due to light and evaporation.

Manufactured on state-of-the-art, fully automated press-lines at our London factory, the easy-on/easy-off lids are designed with smooth radii and light knurling. The jars are fitted with two liners. The EPE liner optimises sealing while the custom-printed, throwaway, pressure-sensitive, liner makes tamper detection obvious.

Zoom on sustainability

The aluminium jars and lids can be recycled in their entirety through normal household collection. Since aluminium can be recycled infinitely without any deterioration to its molecular structure, the jars have solid sustainability credentials.

In conclusion…

We’d like to thank everyone involved in this project for their valuable contribution. It was a great team effort! To be shortlisted for the prestigious UK Packaging Awards is the icing on the cake. Many thanks to the expert judges for their valuable stamp of approval!

Chris Saunders, Roberts Metal Packaging Managing Director, commented:

“Our Softline Extreme range was originally launched over a decade ago and has proved incredibly popular with customers who have utilised this packaging format for products from beard balms to solid fragrances. We’re excited to be showcasing Softline Extreme’s versatility, size, depth and sustainability credentials at Luxe Pack this year with new and current customers.”

Spotlight on Nikky Okelue, QHSE Manager at Roberts Metal Packaging

As part of our Spotlight series, we talk to Nikky Okelue, QHSE (Quality, Health & Safety and Environmental) Manager at Roberts Metal Packaging about the importance of her role and what challenges are facing the metal packaging industry today. 

  1. What is your current job title? What are your main responsibilities and tasks?

Hi! I’m Nikky and I’m the Quality, Health & Safety and Environmental (QHSE) Manager at Roberts Metal Packaging. I’m responsible for ensuring compliance in all three of these areas.

There is also a fourth aspect to my role which isn’t reflected in my job title. That’s Brand Reputation Compliance Global Standard (BRCGS). Since regulations for all four elements are constantly evolving, it’s a busy role!

  1. How does your role relate to the overall objectives of the company?

Ensuring company-wide compliance across these four key elements gives customers the confidence they need to do business with Roberts. The Quality and BRCGS aspects – which relate to product integrity – are particularly important for new customers.

The Health & Safety aspect safeguards a comfortable, safe work environment for our employees, setting them up for a successful, productive, rewarding day, every day.

Finally, as regards environmental performance, we have an extremely effective Environmental Management System. It keeps us on track with our sustainability goals in terms of boosting resource usage efficiencies and reducing waste. And the results give us a strong competitive advantage and help win trust among all our stakeholders – including customers, prospects, business partners and employees.

  1. Describe your typical day.

Every day is different but, underlying all my activity, is a thirst for continuous improvement. One day you’ll find me arranging for compliance inspections. The next, I’ll be reading up on the latest regulatory changes. And the day after that, you’ll find me investigating complaints and ensuring we have viable corrective actions in place. Every day is unique!

  1. What aspect(s) are your greatest source of a sense of satisfaction and pride?

Ensuring we are compliant with relevant legislation as well as with Internal Standard requirements is extremely satisfying. To have our progress in these areas recognised by independent, expert bodies is a major source of pride for me.

  1. What do you most like about Roberts’ company culture?

Everyone at Roberts is shown respect and encouraged to have a voice, whatever their level of seniority. I love that attitude. It’s important for building a happy, fulfilled, productive workforce with a strong sense of self-worth. And we’re a friendly, open bunch!

I also appreciate the company’s commitment to a good work/life balance. As a busy mother of three children, I’m grateful to be given all the tools I need to succeed at my job during work hours, and the freedom to refocus on my family at the end of the working day. If I need to work at home one day – or periodically – that’s fine too.

  1. How has Roberts helped you in your career development since you started?

I’ve lost count of how many courses I’ve attended since joining Roberts! Examples include the International Register of Certificated Auditors (IRCA) training course and many Health & Management workshops.

The company has invested heavily in helping me develop my professional skills and achieve my career goals. My skills, knowledge base and confidence have all benefitted from the investment.

  1. What are the biggest challenges for the metal packaging industry at the moment?

The biggest challenge for SMEs around the UK is meeting Scope One requirements on our journey to net zero. Getting accurate data on Roberts’ emissions is challenging as we outsource the transport element of order fulfilment to fleet companies. Calculating our carbon footprint without precise intelligence from them is impossible. But with our usual determination and expertise, we’ll get there!

  1. What are the most important skills that school children and university students should spend time developing to set themselves up for career success? Why?

In today’s business world, technical skills aren’t enough to guarantee success. Soft skills are arguably even more important. I think young people should work on their flexibility, personal management (which means showing initiative, and setting and achieving meaningful targets), communication and technology skills – as well as their sense of empathy – from an early age.

  1. If there was one piece of advice that you could give to your younger self, what would that be?

Lead with your head and not with your heart! Analyse the facts dispassionately before making important decisions. Respond based on the hard facts rather than reacting with your emotions. There’s always a place for gut instinct but – without the facts – following your feelings is a much riskier proposition!

And finally… 

  1. What are your passions outside work?

I have many! At the weekend, you’ll find me exploring new places with my three children or dancing to the latest Afrobeats at local events or in my kitchen! My other great pleasure in life is travelling around Europe, delighting in all the new cultures, cuisines and customs that I discover along the way!

Trade shows are back and they mean business!  

Roberts Metal Packaging’s range of forever recyclable lids and jars is met with interest and enthusiasm at Packaging of Perfume Cosmetics & Design (PCD) in Paris and Packaging Innovations, Birmingham 

Trade shows in the packaging space are back and they mean business! Busier than ever and boasting a wide range of high-quality product ranges, Brexit has been powerless to dampen the sector’s enthusiasm for trade exhibitions. Any lingering misgivings about meeting up in-person at such events seem to have disappeared too.  

We need to look no further than Roberts Metal Packaging’s recent experiences at PCD, Paris and Packaging Innovations, Birmingham for a case in point. Let’s hear what Kirsty Taylor, the company’s Sales and Marketing Manager, has to say on the subject.  

Ashfield Extrusion exclusively on-stand with Roberts at PCD, Paris  

As Europe’s premier manufacturer of aluminium and tinplate jars and screwcaps, Roberts Metal Packaging has been exhibiting at PCD as part of Paris Packaging Week – the must-attend event for business and innovation within the global perfume and cosmetics packaging community – for many years.  

As always, Roberts was pleased to showcase its full product range to customers and prospects from France, Germany, the UK and other European countries. Vastly exceeding usual traffic numbers, visitors were keen to source new packaging ideas and brainstorm the options with us. They were particularly interested to see the range of extruded jars and pots we had on-stand – the result of a longstanding, close collaboration with Ashfield Extrusion 

We provide all the aluminium lids and caps for Ashfield Extrusion’s range of jars and tubes. Working in close partnership with them, we ensure perfect-matching in terms of sizing, colour, embossing, style and more.  We can match almost any Pantone colour requirement imaginable. And if it doesn’t already exist – thanks to our partnership with Sun Chemicals – we will create it. The only limit is your imagination!  


Our Ashfield Extrusion range was exclusive to Roberts at the show and made quite a splash!  

Sustainability still top of mind at Packaging Innovations, Birmingham 

Where PCD attracts an audience from across Europe and the UK, Packaging Innovations enables us to focus our attention on networking with our UK-based suppliers, customers and prospects. We exhibit at this must-attend event every year and – as with PCD – were surprised to find that the show was much busier than usual.  

Frequent questions, as always, related to compatibility between our caps and customers’ own jars and bottles. Happily, since our caps have been designed for use with glass and plastic bottles, the answer is almost always ‘no problem.’ So – whether companies were looking to launch an entirely new product or to transition from plastic to aluminium caps – they appreciated our positive can-do approach, proven capabilities and examples of the finished products.  

The show also highlighted that interest surrounding sustainability and recycling continues to gain momentum. We always warn our customers of the dangers of relying on such misleading metrics, useful only as marketing soundbites. Unlike with plastic or paper packaging, metal is infinitely recyclable. It’s this message that manufacturers need to focus on. It’s about educating consumers about the ‘forever recyclable’ aspect of metal that matters. 

The packaging industry is both highly competitive and constantly-evolving. If you want to gain and retain a competitive edge, you need to keep your fingers firmly on the pulse of all the latest trends and innovations. Attending trade shows is a key part of the challenge.  

The incredible dynamism and vibrancy we witnessed at this year’s PCD and Packaging Innovations, and rapidly growing consumer appetite for recycling combine to offer a great growth opportunity to Roberts Metal Packaging. Our high-quality solutions enable our customers to stand out from the crowd and we look forward to helping them to do so today, tomorrow and for the long-term.

Oh Yeah for Shea Yeah!

Roberts Metal Packaging and Shea Yeah aluminium metal jars received the highly commended award in the Metal Pack of the Year – Promotional, Decorative & General Line category at the UK Packaging Awards 2022 

Established in 2016, Shea Yeah body butter and hand balm products are marketed on their use of natural plant power. The Swiss brand formulates water-free natural cosmetics with unrefined organic shea butter from Ghana, cold-pressed organic oils, and a combination of Swiss herbs. Shea Yeah is an environmentally friendly beauty brand, and as such it made sense for the packaging to demonstrate excellent green credentials alongside ‘shelf appeal’. 

Shea Yeah packaging awards

“Naturally sourced cosmetics have been a growing trend year on year, but there has certainly been a jump in sales as consumers become more aware of ingredients and packaging, and certainly as Gen Z start to spend,” says Chris Saunders, Managing Director, Roberts Metal Packaging. “We were delighted to have been approached by Shea Yeah to help with the brand’s packaging brief.” 

The Shea Yeah brief was for two recyclable aluminium jars in 90g and 40g capacities for new products in its skincare range: a body butter and a hand balm. The jars are not single-use, so they needed to be leak-proof, have easy-to-open/easy-to-close functionality and aesthetically show off the brand’s soft colour palette and tactility. The final packaging selection must also survive being stored and used in a warm, damp bathroom environment.  

Our 75ml and 50ml jars made from 0.25mm recyclable aluminium were selected from the Roberts Softline Aluminium Jar range, which structurally have soft radii and a smooth texture. The simple decoration to both lids and bases incorporates a soft pink for the 40g hand balm and a soft orange shade for the 90g body butter.  

Manufactured on fully automatic, state of the art production lines in our UK London based factory, the pack is low-cost despite the luxurious feel and stylish design. The jar was clear lacquered internally and finished externally with satin-matt varnish.  


Additionally, both lids were fitted with EPE liners to prevent product evaporation and to ensure a leak-proof seal with the base. Alongside the Softline design, the liner also ensures easy screw on and off action, and the lid is both leak- and damp-proof making it totally resealable after every use. 

As always, Roberts aims to add value to every brand or product through packaging design, and in the case of Shea Yeah the decoration needed to demonstrate strong shelf presence amongst similar products in an increasingly crowded international market. The soft simple decoration combined with the structural design reflected the overall product image required by the client, and the feedback has been very positive from the brand and their consumers.  

Alongside the effective functionality of the jars, the brief has been met with great success for Shea Yeah’s new product launch.

We’re delighted to have received the Highly Commended accolade for Shea Yeah at this year’s UK Packaging Awards. 

Small businesses can make a big impact

Chris Saunders, Managing Director, tells how even small businesses can create a big impact with sustainable packaging choices


I’ve seen a lot of new start-ups and businesses on Instagram and other social media channels recently, and often look at their product packaging and think, ‘it’s all just a lot of plastic again’. Packaging is frequently missed as part of the promotion or marketing plan for SMEs.

Small or medium size businesses could make a bigger impact not only environmentally but also in their marketing if they were using sustainable metal packaging as part of their range. There’s no rule that says you must only use metal or plastic or glass – there is huge value in simply changing one product pack or one lid to metal, for example.

The small changes really add up in terms of environmental impact. As a result, small brands can then promote the packs as much as the product.

In the context of cosmetics especially, which is a major sector for us, one of the biggest impacts that a small company could make by changing to metal would be on the recycling rates of beauty packaging compared to a plastic hair wax tub or a plastic lip gloss container for example.

In my opinion, the younger generation are the most committed to sustainability, and the most likely to pay attention to the recycling credentials of product packaging. Brands who focus on this point will boost their eco credentials and win a major marketing point with young consumers.

Ultimately, our key message is that metal recycles forever and for the younger generation, ‘forever’ is perhaps more meaningful. It’s their future we’re protecting by recycling packaging today. For older generations, issues around sustainability and recycling aren’t ingrained into everyday life in the way it hopefully will be for the next generation of industry leaders, policy makers and consumers.

There are many challenges for small companies now. Supermarkets are reducing stock keeping units (SKUs) like there’s no tomorrow. Compared to how many different SKUs supermarkets and department stores were selling 2-3 years ago, it’s massively reduced. So, who’s going to take a product from a new start-up? Probably not the supermarket chains.

One thing we can do to make metal packaging a more affordable option for small businesses looking to make a big eco impact is to steer them towards keeping packs as standard as possible. If, as a small business, they only want small quantities to begin with, it’s likely to be the more cost-effective solution for them, as we will have units in stock and don’t require the purchase or creation of bespoke tooling.

For example, a standard 15ml aluminium jar (popular for lip balms) that we make and sell to UK and European stockists would be available to order in a relatively small number, and customisation options are available via labelling. This is an inexpensive way to trial metal packaging without overcommitting on the budget sheet.

It’s worth noting also that small companies don’t have to feel pressured to choose between metal and plastic packaging. Quite a few companies decide to have an aluminium product (such as a hair or beard wax tin) within a larger range that includes other packaging formats such as glass and plastic (a hand pump bottle for soap or lotion for example). Often, they’ll request items that need to aesthetically match and look pleasing alongside other items in their range, but they won’t necessarily all be formed of the same material.

Coca-Cola is a classic example of mixed packaging, albeit on a larger scale. Their product is still sold in traditional glass bottles with crown corks, but they also sell in aluminium beverage cans which they have done for years, they sell in glass, and they sell in PET plastic – so it’s not always just about all metal, sometimes it’s about choices within a range.

Often when we think of behaviour change around packaging, we’re thinking of global brands and sales in huge numbers. But it’s just as important to consider that a big impact can be driven by smaller businesses making sustainable choices – metal can help achieve this, one lid, jar or tin at a time.

Packaging events return post-pandemic

Chris Saunders, Managing Director, runs through the return of industry live events in 2022


We’ve missed live events since the onset of the global pandemic, but this year were delighted to attend two of our regular exhibitions, run by Easyfairs: Packaging of Perfume Cosmetics & Design (PCD), part of Paris Packaging Week, and Packaging Innovations at Birmingham NEC.

The two shows are always very different; the Paris show is always buzzing and as you might expect, more international and dynamic with particular focus on cosmetic products. Although we have been supplying directly into Europe for many years, we always meet new people in Paris, which is a huge draw – and we expect to generate more enquiries for samples and quotes from specific companies that come over to see us. So, our follow-up was much more involved from Paris than it was for Birmingham.

The show at the Birmingham NEC is where we meet industry contacts and clients that we know and work with, and because we don’t go and see people much these days, it’s a wonderful opportunity to be able to chat about things face to face. Here, we focus a bit more on networking and seeing what other companies are offering.


Packaging trends

In terms of packaging trends, all the events over the last few years seem to come back to a conversation around being plastic-free – yet the shows are still dominated by plastic. I find that quite interesting. Plastic is so important (and I’m saying that as a metal packaging supplier). In fact, plastic is so important that although there are a lot of people who make all the ‘right’ noises about being plastic free, no-one has really come up with very many alternatives to plastic.

I had observed in recent years that there were quite a few brands on the brink of switching over to metal, in particular tinplate, from plastic. Sadly, they’ve just started to have doubts because tinplate has more than doubled in price in the past 18 months. Whilst the plastic tax is coming in (and I know plastic costs have gone up as well because of energy costs) the increase is not as much as the jump in price for tinplate.

I think that quite a lot of brands have changed their mind or put their plans on hold for the time being simply because of the quite ridiculous cost difference. And the plastic tax is not going to make enough of a difference to tip people over the edge to metal. In my opinion, Covid and the current global events of 2022 have pushed, certainly Europe, back years in terms of greener, more sustainable packaging.

For a lot of potential customers – business owners and brands – there still needs to be an initial outreach and education to help them learn about metal, compared to plastic. There’s still an audience in the packaging industry that needs to go right back to the beginning and learn about the benefits of metal packaging, be those environmental, practical or design benefits. Often big brands try to compare metal to plastic in the questions that they ask, and because plastic has been in use for so long, people are just brainwashed to think about very specific uses for plastic. There are still some big challenges that we face in convincing people that you need to think about metal in a different way.


Future events

In terms of next year’s events, I would like to see a particular focus on the issues surrounding greenwashing in packaging. Greenwashing must have its profile raised. For example, the pitfalls of brands offering 100% PCR on aluminium products should be discussed. Nobody seems completely clear on the absolute rules and long-term results and more conversation is needed.

Why are we allowing some companies to corner areas of PCR and say that their product is 100% or 98% PCR when there is a finite amount of PCR available? If they have it all, it means is that another company that trades down the road has less, or even none. There’s no environmental benefit in doing this because aluminium already has the highest recycling rate of any packaging material. So, the recycling rate is the important thing, not how much PCR there is available in a particular batch of aluminium. It’s very difficult for businesses like us because we’re frequently asked by big companies about this subject and if we say PCR is not relevant for metal, they don’t believe it and they want to go somewhere else. I’d like to see the whole profile of this issue raised by speakers at events so that it’s an open conversation.

We’re very much looking forward to attending Luxe Pack in Monaco in October 2022, so please do come along and say hello to us there!

Why zero plastic packaging is an unreachable goal

Chris Saunders, Managing Director, Roberts Metal Packaging


‘Plastic-free’ sounds fantastic, doesn’t it?

But don’t get too excited – the fact is that there is no closure that doesn’t have some plastic in the liner. Many brands, designers and consumers are finding this difficult to accept, and we need to encourage clients to understand that reducing plastic is a momentous first step. For many of them, the only realistic one.

Plastic is an essential component in high quality closures on metal packaging because – put simply – as part of a liner it serves as a product barrier. A liner is important because it helps create an airtight seal, therefore avoiding product contamination and preventing both leaks and evaporation.

We could offer plastic free packs without a liner – but with a high risk of evaporation and/or leakage – it probably wouldn’t be a popular choice!

Have you ever used the paper straws sometimes served with milkshake cups? They go soggy halfway through your drink. The same thing applies here – if you wanted to use paper liners in metal pack closures, the product would be absorbed into the porous paper, and consumers would be left with a mess.

Some liners are also designed to cushion, and to create compression when the lid is screwed down – but paper liners would be crushed out of shape within a couple of uses. Be aware that any closures advertised as having paper liners would still include a coating of plastic – it’s just greenwashing if they don’t mention it.

Interestingly, the issue that many clients seem keen to discuss is how to recycle the plastic liners in metal packaging – but the answer is always a lot simpler than they expect. You don’t.

The liner is very small, and if you correctly recycle the metal packaging (which is very important) the liner will be burnt off during the metal recycling process. This way, no additional plastic is added to landfill or oceans, which is one of the main concerns.

Many clients and consumers see zero-plastic packaging as the ultimate end-goal for the environment and circular economy. But plastic recycling doesn’t work in the same way as metal recycling. Metal has a fixed and well-established route back to reprocessing; with plastic, the route is not as well defined and consumer confusion is common. This is likely down to an uncoordinated approach from local authorities and confusing on-pack messaging.

Whilst our liner material (EPE) is recyclable, there is no infrastructure to support the process – and it seems very unlikely that most consumers would remove the liner for a separate waste stream if there was. Rubber and silicone alternatives are prohibitively expensive, make the products smell and would likely run into the same problems with consumers not separating liners for recycling. Waxed paper has also been trialled but less effective in providing a good seal. And even cork is impregnated with neoprene so that has plastic in it too.

For us, the right thing to do moving forwards is to help people understand and appreciate why reduced plastic is a better goal than zero-plastic. Our EPE and other liner materials (if requested by clients) are highly regulated and compliant with EU, REACH and food legislation. They are the best choice for metal closures because they provide the best seal – it’s really that simple. Any further issues clients and consumers have with the use of plastic in closures should be redirected to local councils and recycling centres. Perhaps the next environmental movement should focus on building more available recycling streams for plastics – and how the consumer should behave in sorting recyclable materials for collection.

Our clients can rest assured that we have used the thinnest liners for our closures, using as little plastic as possible to continually maintain the highest standard in finished metal packs.
