OPAC receives the IPLS AWARD 2023 for U Nature, eco-sustainable wipes for pet care

OPAC has gained another achievement at Marca by BolognaFiere, the main Italian event for the commercial brand. U-Nature, Ecocert certified wet wipes specifically conceived for the growing  pet care market, received the coveted IPLS Award dedicated to the most innovative and interesting projects worldwide.

The jury selected the winners according to three criteria: the newness of the product and its opportunity of international growth; product and process innovation; product sustainability.

U-Nature wipes obtained an excellent rating in all respects, and they are the only wipe product which was awarded in the “Non-food” category of IPLS (International Private Label Selection) Award, for which about a hundred proposals were eligible.

U-Nature wipes, dedicated to dogs and cats care, have been conceived with the utmost respect for animals and environment: the lotion has 99% ingredients of natural origin, and the soft, large-sized tissue is plastic-free and made of 100% natural fibres of vegetable origin, which make the wipe biodegradable. The brand new eco-pack boasts 56% less plastic material compared to the previous version, with the aim of significantly reducing waste and plastics in the oceans.

After cleaning, the product leaves the fur soft and pleasantly scented thanks to organic ingredients such as Glycerin, with its soothing action, and sweet Orange extract, with softening properties. The softness and absence of fragrance make the product suitable even for ear and eye cleansing.

“OPAC believes in innovation and future, and future means sustainability – stated Raffaella Bartesaghi, OPAC board member & CMO, during the award ceremony on January 18 at Marca. Our DNA is “create to innovate”: we turn market trends into cutting-edge products, with creativity and care for the environment, in all the segments included in our offer, from pet care to toiletries, from baby care to skincare”. OPAC, an Italian company that proposes itself as a total solution provider for the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and cleaning industry, is gaining recognition at both Italian and international level for worldwide patented innovations.
