This prototype concept shows how packaging can be grown from renewable materials such as Gourd.
Gourd is a fruit which has been used in the past as a a container, but to fit it for use with modern cosmetics it is grown in a rectangular mould so that it can be easily transported. It is grown in moulds, harvested, and dried out. Gourd is suitable for bath oils, soap powder and bath salts.
Gourd could be used as an alternative to replace glass and plastic packaging currently used for cosmetics.
