Winner Laminate Tube
Much Easier, Gentler and More Hygenic
The Canesten® tube from Bayer, which is produced by the Swiss company Hoffmann Neopac AG, took first place among the laminate tubes. Up to now, the cream for treating athlete’s foot was available in a tube with a conventional screw cap. However, a lot of patients found it uncomfortable to touch the area to be treated, especially since it is quite difficult to apply the cream with the fingers in the area between the toes, and this can also lead to additional irritation of the affected skin. The soft spatula applicator now allows athlete’s foot to be treated without any finger contact whatsoever; this makes applying the cream much easier, gentler and more hygienic. The Polyfoil© laminate protects the product from light, air and water vapour diffusion and prevents migration. Consumers are obviously very pleased with this modern and innovative packaging: in a market test, 90 per cent of the test persons questioned rated the convenient and easy application positively.
