Meet
SKINS® SILKY

Silky: “Pharma and cosmetics companies are always asking me to help out. Is it my personality? Actually I reckon it’s the silky smooth texture I add which complements their USPs.”

 

 

 

 

Skins® Silky gives print or packaging the luxurious feel of silk. She says she can seduce anyone with even the softest touch!

Often seen on beautifully finished skincare, perfume and make-up products, she transforms cosmetic packaging designs by associating them with indulgence.

Skins® Silky silk varnish might be beautiful but she also has a very practical side. Her low viscosity makes her well suited for use in flexographic printing or varnishing units. You can also count on good rub resistance and high slip level. Use her on all kinds of papers and boards and plastics. Non-yellowing, Skins® Silky is easy to handle and will keep her good looks long term.

This special overprint varnish is particularly used on logos or accents around them. It can also act as a highlight around images or provide an elegant border effect. Or why not use it to attract attention to a particular part of your packaging?

Silky's Inspiration
