More on BOV - EcoFriendly - Less Preservatives

Can you believe it’s been over a year since we introduced Bag on Valve (BOV) technology at Chicago Aerosol? Time sure flies! As with all new technology, we are learning more and more everyday about the incredible advantages of using BOV.  One of our favorite features is how eco-friendly BOV is.

One of our favorite features is how eco-friendly BOV is.

For those who don’t know, BOV is a packaging technology designed to provide an alternative to traditional aerosols. A composite bag is placed into a can and the space between the bag and the can is pressurized with compressed air. The product is then added into the bag. When the end-user presses down on the actuator, the product is squeezed out of the bag by the compressed air, producing a continuous spray that is identical to an aerosol. 

For today’s environmentally conscious consumers, the use of compressed air has a good ring to it. Avoiding flammable gases in your products also leads to benefits in handling and waste disposal.

Another great feature is that you lower the need for any preservatives, as BOV products are 100% protected from oxygen contact. This means a longer shelf life without the use of added preservatives, helping to give the product a pure and natural image.

As time goes on, the marketplace is utilizing more and more of this eco-friendly technology. Contact us today to learn more. Our team of experts, from the chemists in our lab to our packaging design team, will help you with your next fulfillment need.
