JUNE 2013 - Stila wins new innovation award

IPDA presents winning award to Stila for new innovation. Stila won the category for 'Innovations In Sustainable Packaging' for their Solar Illuminated Refillable Compact and Powder Duo for E! Live from the Red Carpet ™.

This compact, supplied with a duo of refillable shimmering pressed powders, is HCP's most innovative compact to date and credit must be given to Stila for considering the origins and long-term future of their cosmetics products. Solar powered and fully rechargeable up to a thousand times, no mains power supply is required for it to function. The glass solar cell panel has a five year lifespan and is fully charged by nine hours of sunlight and there's also a tiny, green star on the cover which indicates the built-in lithium battery is recharging. When opened, LEDs illuminate the reversed out Stila logo on the cover and the square halo of light around the internal mirror gives clear vision for application in any light conditions.

The annual International Package Design Awards (IPDA), sponsored by Beauty Packaging and Happi magazines, announced the winners at HBA Global Expo, New York on June 19th, 2013. The winners were chosen from among the 55 finalists in 13 categories.
