Grace Cosmetics shows beauty through aging

Beauty packaging is always seeking new notions of aesthetics from different materials. Awed by the beauty of copper, GCC packaging uses the technique of patina to create chemistry between plastic and metals.

The most striking part of patina is a green, blue surface created by the slow chemical alteration of copper, producing a basic carbonate. This decoration technique used by Grace Cosmetics and ignited by cross industry collaboration will be a new concept brought to packaging innovation in 2016 for the company's cosmetic compacts and make-up lines.

GCC is a pioneer in its use of and development of new packaging decoration techniques for make-up products which has made the company a popular choice with a number of American and European cosmetic companies looking to differentiate with fresh ideas.
