With the very competitive market for new products at retail, professional, personal care or medical, companies are in search of new technologies to improve customer experience while adding value and barrier to entry.
The once standard plastic, metal, or laminate tubes that were the mainstay for oral care, personal care, and medical are now out of vogue. Today the tube packaging industry is working feverously to stay one step ahead of the formulators and delivery requirements for these new products, and with that comes challenges from design, engineering, and of course developing an efficient filling and packaging system.
Several of the new technologies that are either in final stages of development or preparing for commercialization are; unit dose one hand operated tubes with and without flow through applicators, slim line tubes with soft touch roll on applicator tip for multi-use application, two part co-dispensed multi use tube, and the new cartridge system that will allow the user to replace a pre-filled unit onto the existing base for multi applications of a set period of time. The cartridge is offered with a variety of flow through applicators from brush tip, doe foot flocked or silicone, and sponge tips.
It’s time to step out of the cluttered humdrum packaging world, set yourself apart from the crowd with a creative new tube delivery system.
