HEINZ-GLAS opens up new possibilities for the idea of sustainability.
With the "All4One" glass jar concept, HEINZ-GLAS relies on a modular refill design solution which, in contrast to the previously known plastic refill inserts, relies entirely on glass as material.
We can do that: HEINZ-GLAS sustainably on the road in terms of beauty
The glass mascara bottles from HEINZ-GLAS are top quality & stylish
With this eye-catcher, we are really stirring up the mascara market: For this new product line, we have teamed up with GEKA, one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-precision application systems for the cosmetics market specializing in mascara. With our know-how, the perfect coordination of details and some great innovations, we now offer beautifully designed mascara bottles that make the change from plastic to more attractive glass. The options are almost unlimited: glass type, colour, finishing in combination with a choice of brush and closure? Simply put together online with the Virtual Designer, we take care of production including filling. This is also the advantage of the short distances: Everything is made in Germany, most of it even made in Kleintettau! i.e For example, the specially developed wiper by GEKA is manufactured by our sister company HEINZ-PLASTICS. All this with an unbeatable environmental balance: For decades, we have been actively minimizing our CO2 emissions in our region Upper Franconia. Additionally, because mascara as a beauty product is really a matter of trust, we have here an advantage in terms of quality. Both HEINZ-GLAS and GEKA are GMP-certified which is verging on medical standard! So oops, dear cosmetics industry, here we come!
Not a Mistake
"NOT A MISTAKE" by HEINZ‐GLAS turns deviations into chances
A premium glass with a crooked bottom inside, visible shape seams, irregular surface or enclosed air bubbles? What seems to be a mistake at first glance is absolutely wanted and becomes pure design! With our "NOT A MISTAKE" series, we turn four deviations from the norm into an aesthetic that is as trendy as it is honest and an opportunity for our customers. For an individual and natural glass optics, the four tolerances can be freely selected according to the modular principle. In our often uniform world, this authentic, unadulterated look guarantees maximum attention. And it testifies to ecological awareness. Glass is made of natural materials and can only be brought into a flawless shape with great effort. The more deviations are tolerated, the more sustainable the manufacturing process and the more natural the appearance – without any compromise in terms of quality. The use of 25% recycled glass and greener energy increases the climate-friendly factor once again. Whether glass jar or bottle, "NOT A MISTAKE" makes all products an honest design eye-catcher. In prototypes we have illustrated the aesthetic effect that the customer can achieve with different combinations of irregularities. Download PDF

We are very big in reducing our CO2 footprint
We now have made available 3 standard bottles - carbon balanced!
Sensationally low 0.4g CO2 is produced in Kleintettau per gross gram of glass produced, and the trend is decreasing! And we are increasingly compensating for CO2 emissions, which cannot be prevented despite all efforts, with climate protection projects certified according to the gold standard. Now we have made the no-frills noble bottles Shine (15ml + 50 ml) and Enso 100ml (with caps) placed climate neutral with an ocean project: For every balanced ton of CO2, 10kg of plastic is fished out of the sea. This fits perfectly with our environmental policy at HEINZ-GLAS, because we are the top of the class in reducing the CO2 footprint: As a pioneer in the industry, we invested in highly efficient electric melting furnaces, which we operate with hydropower green electricity!

The transport of the exclusive glass products is even safer:
According to HEINZ-GLAS, the fiber-cast packaging developed jointly with Papacks Sales GmbH and Coty has more than fulfilled the expectations of set performance criteria. As the most important thing in this packaging advancement, the Upper Franconian flacon manufacturer emphasizes that the three-dimensional transport trays are more form-stable and shock-absorbent than their plastic predecessors and guarantee improved protection. The innovation is based on 100% renewable fibers such as hay, straw or hemp. This alone reduces the CO2 footprint by a factor of four.
In accordance with the zero-waste principle, the cast fiber packaging can either be recycled in the circular system or decomposed as biocompost within 6 weeks. Of course the cast fiber packaging is compatible with robots, can be stacked to save space and, thanks to a reduced number of components, allows easier handling when setting up the pallets. Fiber casting is an ecological and economical answer to current packaging and transport issues for premium products. HEINZ-GLAS invites all its customers to follow this environmentally friendly path of new and better technology together.

Turn & Click
With the new Turn & Click closure system, HEINZ-GLAS Group offers an innovative, especially user-friendly locking system. The bayonet-like system requires only a slight turning movement when opening and closing and additionally protects against overtightening of the thread. A "click" sound when engaging also makes the tight fit of the closure audibly perceptible. The system can be made of glass from HEINZ-GLAS or plastic from HEINZ-PLASTICS. The shape of the container only plays a subordinate role: round, oval as well as angular shapes can be equipped with the Turn & Click closure. For the end customer, containers with this closure are particularly interesting due to the "click" when snapping in place, the minimal twisting movement and the aesthetically pleasing appearance, which invites to "upcycle" the product.

360° smooth flowing sublimation on a lightweight bottle creates a synergy of vision and touch. The marble effect of the plastic cap continues the organic design and together with the silkscreen on the front of the bottle completes this unique product. The entire design is in Pantone Colours of the Year 2022: "Very Peri".
The combination of digital printing and partial flockage offers endless variations. By additionally flocking special areas of the digital print, a unique depth effect is created that can also be felt haptically. Whether it’s lettering, geographic shapes or natural effects, the flockage additionally highlights special elements of the finishing.
The digital print applied here is characterized by the creation of a relief, which makes the imprint on the surface haptically perceptible. In this example, the effect of a paper label can be applied to the surface very easily and flexibly. This finishing option is particularly interesting for all kinds of structures or lettering imprints.
Whether metallization or color spraying as a base, a crackle varnish adds a special effect to any spray coating. The color and combination possibilities are huge, and the crinkle effect can be applied both partially and over the entire surface.
Our answer to all questions concerning sustainability. Lightweight PCR-Glass in combination with an refillable neck, waterbased laquering and nature-glitter spraying or printing. You can‘t get more sustainable than that.

A special spraying technique and metallization in rosé gold are responsible for this flacons’ icy finish. Whether metallization or colour spraying, whether full or just partial: the ice-effect technique is the perfect icy finish for every project.
Eco Powder Compact
With "Eco Powder Compact", the HEINZ-GLAS Group presents a proven product in a sustainable, luxurious version. The newly developed Powder Compact consists of a slim glass jar made of high-quality, sustainable PCR glass, produced with CO2-free energy plus recycled lime and a screw-on, hinged top made of recycled plastic with space for an internal mirror and a powder puff. The technical challenge in creating the Eco Powder Compact was to achieve the smallest possible deviation in terms of diametre and height of existing beauty products of this kind. The system is refillable with standard powder pans, so when refilling, only the product itself needs to be replaced, not the outer packaging. This gives the consumer the option of putting together his or her own product from various combinations. Another advantage is the protective function of the glass for the product inside. The sturdy glass in the lower part of the Eco Powder Compact protects the product inside from bumps and shocks.
Glassmaking will always remain our passion.
Sand, soda and lime are always our working materials of choice.
For HEINZ-GLAS, however, supplementing all this with bits and bytes is not a contradiction. But rather the way to opening a new dimension in glass.
