Jungle packaging wins the 2021 WorldStar Award
Karl Knauer KG uses packaging concepts to crown visionaries
The magic of the jungle
The packaging emotionally tells the true story behind the face cream’s formula in a way that customers can experience. Sabine Kuegler – co-founder of The Creammaker and known as the "Jungle Child" – uses the traditional knowledge of the indigenous people of the Fayu tribe in West Papua to create her natural cosmetics – modern, high-end products made from 100 % plant-based active ingredients. Customers who choose this high-quality cream will be taken on a voyage of discovery into the depths of the New Guinea jungle during the unboxing process. Only once the band is untied is a view of the diorama presentation box revealed. The lasered bamboo jar containing the hand-mixed cream rests behind a curtain of plants, complete with four depth levels in total.
This packaging concept – which is both emotional and sustainable – won the Gold Award of the German Packaging Award in 2020. This was a prerequisite for solutions to be nominated for the 2021 WorldStar Award. Only packaging that has previously won a significant national or regional award is eligible for entry into this competition.
