The new range, which was launched to coincide with the birth of Prince George, features Spectra's popular Flat Based Boston Round design.

The new packs have been created for Duchy Originals baby wash and baby lotions and have been moulded in PET. Spectra also used their unique frosted etched effect finish to add a premium look and feel for the new bottles.

Gary Allard, Field Sales Representative at Spectra remarked,

“We’re delighted to have produced packs for this exclusive range of products. Our team were keen to add something extra to the finished pack and our clever etched frosting techniques certainly give products that “icing on the cake” finish”.

Traditionally, etched frosting is achieved using a pearling process, however this doesn’t actually affect the feel of the surface and can often produce a milky appearance. However, Spectra have developed a unique way of creating the effect during the moulding process, which actually disrupts the surface of the bottle resulting in a genuine glass-like frosted etched feel. This effective finish can be replicated on all of our standard PET containers.

Duchy Originals, whose products are exclusively sold by Waitrose, was originally set up by HRH The Prince of Wales and named after the Duchy of Cornwall estates. The brand also donates sizeable royalties to the Prince’s Charities Foundation.

Tom Allsworth MD at Medichem, the exclusive manufacturers of Duchy Originals personal care range, commented,

“Spectra’s innovative enthusiasm has resulted in a premium outcome for our range of products. They have produced quality packaging for us in the past and have done it again on this occasion – we’re extremely pleased with the results”.
