Somater Paper Mascara

Driven by the desire to offer our customers innovative packaging solutions in line with the ecological transition, we are pleased to present the “paper mascara”. The cardboard replaces the plastic cap and can also be used to cover the bottle.

The cardboard fibre offers a natural, pleasant and raw feel and also allows for multiple possibilities of decoration, and this in an environmentally friendly way, with natural inks and glues.

The development of this EcoTribeTM reference is still part of our commitment to the circular economy. It is the result of sustained and collaborative work with our strategic partners to provide sustainable and responsible solutions.

SAESA-240 - ABL PBL tubes

Lisses, September 2022, successful start-up of a new fully automatic high-speed production line for the manufacture of ABL or PBL tubes. The latest generation welding process allows a very fast changeover from one solution to the other.

With a capacity of up to 240 tubes per minute, the new line further strengthens our responsiveness to customer demands. It is fully compatible with the specific features of our “EcoTribeTM” range and thus complies with Somater’s eco-design commitments.

With this gain in performance and agility, Somater is determined to pursue its roadmap in order to sup-port its market partners in a sustainable and proactive manner.

Awwards Raven flask L'Oréal Paris

Another success for Somater with a project carried out in partnership with L’ORÉAL this time. This is the RAVEN flask in PE which was produced by injection blow molding (IBM) on our Mortagne site and which meets precise and ambitious specifications.

With demanding technical control (wall thickness reduced to 0.40 mm) and thorough functional checks on each bottle (particularly for sealing), this innovation reflects all of Somater’s know-how.

Used to market the “ONE TWIST HAIR COLOR” product, this pack has already won L’ORÉAL an award in the “Hygiene and Hair Care – Mass Market” category at the PCD Innovation Awards.

We are very proud of our contribution to this great success for L’ORÉAL, which once again underlines our commitment and our ability to meet our customers’ requirements. An official award ceremony will take place during the PCD show on June 29 and 30, 2022 in Paris, where we will be present on booth C27… don’t hesitate to visit us!

New logo Somater

In a changing world, Somater’s ambition is to provide new answers to the challenges of our time in the world of packaging.

Our know-how, creativity and talents are used to achieve new industrial, social and commercial objectives. Our approach to eco-design and reduction of our carbon footprint is a good example of this.

Our vision finds a new and enriched expression in the logo we are presenting today.

It introduces a company rooted in its history, robust and determined to serve its customers in the beauty, health and food industries better than ever. It embodies the collective adventure and the dynamics we wish to deploy with all our stakeholders.

We hope you will like this new signature. It will be unveiled at the PCD trade show which will be held on June 29 and 30 in Paris.

rPET flask for Expanscience

In line with our latest news on eco-responsible initiatives, we are pleased to announce the strengthening of our long-standing partnership with Laboratoires Expanscience.

This partnership expresses itself in the use of our 200 ml flask by the Mustela brand to reinforce their sun protection range. What makes this flask so original? We have added a good dose of eco-design: made of 100% rPET, it is now 100% recycled and recyclable.

This result demonstrates once again our commitment to the circular economy and our desire to provide concrete solutions to our customers to achieve our CSR objectives together.

You will find details of our range of standard flasks in our online catalog.

Latest eco-responsible creation: Payot “NUE” range

Among the products that make up Payot’s “Nue” range, we are focusing today on a 200 ml flask that we have developed using recycled material and to be 100% recyclable.

Developed in partnership with Laboratoires Payot, this packaging also paves the way for the brand’s ambitions in terms of sustainable development: “By 2025, 100% of the packaging used for Payot products will be made from recycled and/or recyclable materials and we are aiming for plastic neutrality by 2030!”

For SOMATER, this launch is fully aligned with our CSR objectives for 2025 which are to minimise our environmental impact: 100% recyclable packs and 50% of packs made from recycled resin.

You will find details of our range of standard flasks in our online catalogue.

Acquisition of ANL PACKAGING by the SOMATER Group

We are pleased to announce the acquisition of ANL PACKAGING by the SOMATER Group. This acquisition is effective as of May 10, 2022.

A European player in thermoforming since 1958, ANL PACKAGING is a key partner of the food industry. Based in Wellen, Belgium, the company employs more than 400 people in three plants in Belgium, France and Poland.

With this acquisition, the SOMATER Group strengthens its position as a leading European player, with strong roots in the beauty, health and food markets. The new entity has an extensive technology portfolio, strengthened innovation capabilities and an optimal geographical location.

“The acquisition of ANL PACKAGING by SOMATER was made possible thanks to strong and shared values: a family logic, a sustained investment policy, a firm commitment to CSR and an uncompromising cus-tomer focus. Together we will be stronger to serve our customers in the same spirit of performance and innovation that has always characterised us”, explains Felix Hubin, CEO of the SOMATER Group.

Like all companies within the SOMATER Group, ANL PACKAGING will continue to operate independently.

ISCC PLUS (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification)

And that’s two!

After Plastuni Normandie, which led the way a few months ago, it is now Plastuni Lisses’ turn to obtain ISCC PLUS (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) certification.

This is a decisive step forward in terms of eco-design, as this standard guarantees the traceability of renewable raw materials throughout the chain and attests to the food quality of the polymers used.

This result illustrates the efforts made in our CSR approach and contributes to reducing our carbon footprint. It also enables us to support our customers in the development of sustainable solutions.

This is illustrated by the upcoming launch of a new generation of recyclable HDPE laminated tubes produced in partnership with the Rocher Group and designed with 40% ISCC PLUS certified material (mass balance recycling).
