Since October 2020, customers in 15 selected dm, Rossmann and Müller drugstores have been able to refill Love Nature detergent and washing-up liquid bottles themselves at specially designed refill stations.
To ensure that everything works perfectly from a technical standpoint, Henkel offers special refill bottles for each product group. There are two detergent and two washing-up liquid variants to choose from, each of which can be dispensed into the bottle provided with the label “My detergent” or “My washing-up liquid”.

News:Old and well settled businesses, brands and products demand least marketing or advertising efforts because these already have made their place in the society and are deeply rooted. These usually have a huge or small fan following or a range of brand loyal customers who hardly change their brands and remain stick to these. Thus such businesses keep enjoying the status of being well-established and most of the times remain indifferent of the ups and downs of the markets because their brand loyal customers never shun buying their products at any cost and in any situation. Contrary to it, those who are new in the realm of business or are dealing in new types of products which are not deeply rooted in the society and a larger section of the society don’t know about these, really have to work hard to make their name, to become famous, to become established, to make brand loyal customers and to maintain at least a minimum level of sales without major ups and downs. Such businesses also have to launch massive advertising campaigns in order to boost their brands. Same is the case with the products like e-liquids which are comparatively newer in the market so in order to increase their sales, the owners of such products and brands have to chalk out comprehensive strategies in order to increase their sales. In this regard, they should not consider any option as useless and should try their level best to make their footprint in the market by utilizing their full capacity and by utilizing every single aid they may find. Like all other packaging requiring businesses, the businesses or brands of e-liquids too can utilize e-liquid boxes as more as possible in order to increase their sales but to do so they have to structure their sales strategy accordingly focusing on the proper utilization of every aspect of the marketing and sales. Custom printed e-liquid packaging boxes with logos can be used to enhance the sales of e-liquids in many ways. Here we will discuss some of these. Retail Packaging Retailers play key role in every business. Almost thousands of people visit retail outlets daily. Many customers visit more than one shop and many visit the same one for many times. These customers walk into the outlets and wander about in search of the things they may need. In the meantime, they come across many things placed on the shelves of the outlets. If the things are beautiful, glamorous or attractive, these will succeed in catching the attention of the customers and they will find themselves helpless to stop before such things while passing. And if the things are not beautiful or attractive they will pass without noticing these. Hence, the retail outlets provide a wonderful opportunity to almost all, and especially the new manufacturers to introduce their stuff with the customers directly even without spending a penny on the massive advertising campaigns that have of course become very costly nowadays. Now it is totally up to the manufacturers to focus on the beautification of their products as more as possible and become able to grab a lion’s share from the market. Same formula can be and should be utilized by the manufacturers of e-liquids. If they make it a rule to pack their products in customized e-liquid retail boxes shaped uniquely, designed artistically, printed glamorously and made decently, they will surely become able to win the attention of the customers who may visit the retail outlets even not to buy e-liquids. Thus just through decent and elegant retail packaging the producers of these liquids can not only increase their sales but can also make their produce famous which is doubtlessly very important for every brand. Moreover, if the producers of these products ensure to inscribe or print the introduction of their produce on these customized retail packaging boxes it will prove an additional aid for them and their expected customers will not have to ask anyone about the ingredients and characteristics of their produce. Display Boxes Custom display boxes have also gained a lot of importance from advertising aspect. The things placed on the shelves of the retail outlets among the host of thousands of other things hardly become able to grab any attention whereas the things packed in a display box and placed at any prominent spot in a retail outlet become able to catch the attention of more and more customers who may walk into a retail outlet no matter to buy whatever things. Therefore those who are producing e-liquids should try their level best to pack their stuff in customized display packaging containers made beautifully and designed artistically. It has been studied that more than half of the customers don’t make any hard and fast list of their shopping items before leaving their thresholds and decide on the run time while visiting a retail outlet or market what they should purchase and what they should not purchase. To grab the attention of such customers and to convince them to buy your products you may use display packaging boxes as an ideal tool. Gable Boxes As the number of things increase, identification of every single thing of the same type keeps becoming bigger and bigger issue. This issue results in the development of identity crisis. Nowadays almost all brands are facing this issue on large scale and trying to evolve the best possible way outs in order to deal with this issue. And out of some other techniques that the business peers suggest nowadays to deal with this issue, is the proper utilization of custom gable boxes. These boxes give prominence to the packed things. These boxes make the packed things beautiful and eye-catching. These elegantly styled boxes enhance the stature of the things and take these from an ordinary level to a higher class. Thus it is quite easy to understand that custom packaging is not only offering packaging solutions to the producers of various things instead it is providing many other services to the producers, wholesalers, retailers and end users and enabling them to increase their sales.
