– Naturally active organic skincare in PCR tubes
Formulated by master herbalist Sebastian Pole, Pukka Ayurveda is an exciting collection of new naturally active organic skincare containing super concentrated plant extracts that are sourced, without the aid of chemical solvents, sustainably harvested oils, butters, juices and herbs.
The range includes cleansing and toning, moisturising and specialist treatments made from organically certified (92.6% - 100%) and naturally active ingredients based on the principles of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian art of living wisely. The unique formulations are free from parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances and colours, and the rich concentrated ingredients reach deep down into the skin’s tissue for the ultimate rejuvenating effect.
In order to reflect the exacting ethical standards of the ingredients Pukka Ayurveda skincare sought a company that could meet the challenge of manufacturing eco-friendly packaging and selected M&H to supply a range of five tubes manufactured from 80% PCR (post-consumer recycled material). M&H manufactured the 50ml Polyethylene tubes which were then decorated with the distinctive Pukka logo alongside ancient Indian inspired graphics printed in silver.
