Luxury Cosmetic Packaging

We all know that luxury cosmetic packaging should make a statement and stand out from the crowd by appealing to your consumers’ senses through branding and eye-catching designs. But it is equally important that it protects your product from damage and external elements such as dust, moisture and light, whilst also promoting your product and informing consumers of your brand ethos.

Maxipos have a wealth of knowledge and 22 years of experience with being a cosmetic packaging supplier as most of our clients fall into this sector. We have produced numerous cosmetic product cartons for skin, hair, and makeup products, created many bespoke pouches for gifting and promotional purposes and have also produced bespoke Christmas crackers and advent calendars for some of the biggest brands in the industry.

We can offer packaging for all sorts of cosmetics including all makeup products and accessories, haircare, and styling products, as well as skincare products.

Mycelium (mushrooms!) and agricultural by-products. Producing a box from this material means it is entirely biodegradable. However, it is best to discuss the purpose of the packaging with us to ensure this is a suitable fit.
