Event Information

"The success of today’s consumer goods like drinks, foodstuffs, personal care, or household products is highly dependent on its packaging. Transparent packaging is the preferred choice to attract the buyer by the color of the product. An attractive color is often the key criterion which influences spontaneous purchasing decisions for a certain product or brand. Wherever there is light however, there is a risk for photo-induced reactions that can impact colorants, vitamins, flavors, scents, or product homogeneity. Consumer goods are typically exposed to either of the following light conditions: Outdoor Sunlight (Transportation/Storage), Indoor Sunlight (Display/End-use), or artificial light (Display/Production). Exposure to sunlight or artificial light during warehousing, distribution, or retail display can undermine consumer goods quality. The risks manufacturers need to manage are the prevention of early degradation of packaging and content. The presentation will cover:

  • Light stability screening of ingredients and formulations
  • Determination of appropriate product packaging
  • Accelerated shelf-life testing (ASLT)"
