After years of development by Ariel’s scientists, the new patent-pending ECOCLIC® box represents the next generation of detergent packaging – a new cardboard packaging, designed to be child safe and easier to use for all adults.
The new cardboard packaging is FSC certified¹ and fully recyclable, made with minimum 70% recycled fibers, so you can easily add it to your household paper collection.
A certified child safe system
At Ariel, child safety is our number one priority. While the ECOCLIC® box has a more intuitive opening mechanism for all adults, it is certified for child safety. Children are prevented from accessing the Ariel PODS® inside thanks to its smart design, proven by extensive research.
And because safety is also about reclosing the pack after every use, Ariel scientists have designed a reassuring ‘click’ feature to signal that the pack has been properly closed.
Of course – make sure you store and keep your ECOCLIC® box out of reach of children.
In addition, all our packaging includes a UFI code located at the back of pack. This 16-character Unique Formula Identifier helps medical services identify the product and its ingredients quicker so that you can get accurate advice faster, in the event you have an accident involving Ariel PODS®.

Accessible to all – except children
Ensuring that the design of the ECOCLIC® box is as intuitive to use and as inclusive as possible without compromising on child safety is a critical requirement for Ariel. Find out more about the changes we’ve made.
How it works
Ariel’s new packaging is inclusive and intuitive to use for adults thanks to its ergonomic opening system with the 2 buttons. Ariel has designed large, clear and legible opening instructions placed at the top of the pack to make sure the box is easy and comfortable to open for all, including those with dexterity, visual and / or cognitive impairments.
Ariel’s ECOCLIC® box also includes two ground-breaking features located on the top panel to help those with visual impairments: a tactile marker and NaviLens technology.
The tactile marker on the top of the box, at the right corner, has been developed by Ariel to help blind consumers recognize what the product is: a laundry detergent.
Next to it, the Navilens QR Code, when scanned through the NaviLens application, downloadable onto your phone, will open an audio-description of the product as well as large and readable text on your phone to help you understand what the product is and how far it is from you. NaviLens code has been developed by a UK Start-up and is already helping many of blind and visually impaired consumers today.

¹Well-managed FSC® certified forests and from other recycled materials.
How to save energy and help protect our planet
When doing your laundry, you may not be thinking about protecting the planet – but we are.
Our approach to sustainable detergent packaging
You don’t buy Ariel for the packaging, you buy it for the quality of the detergent inside it. That doesn’t change the importance of the package, though.
Our future depends on sustainability, which is why we have made it our mission to reduce the environmental footprint of the manufacturing process used to create our Ariel products.
