Alberto-Culver's all-natural bottle graphics

In an effort to recover its declining herbal shampoo/conditioner business, Alberto-Culver, maker of Alberto VO5 products, decided to modernize and “naturalize” its outdated bottles.

The Alberto VO5 Naturals line was contained in green-tinted opaque high-density polyethylene bottles. According to Gina Lazaro of Melrose Park IL-based Alberto-Culver it was difficult to differentiate between the shampoos and conditioners. An in-house design team decided clear polyvinyl chloride bottles for shampoo and opaque HDPE bottles for conditioner would better showcase the product colors. While the subtle teardrop-shaped bottle remains virtually unchanged what distinguishes the new bottles are clarity and attractive graphics. Clear pressure-sensitive labels add to the package’s crystalline quality. The labels are flexo-printed in four colors with a one-color rotary screen for the text. Since the redesign sales are up significantly says Lazaro.
