The Swiss-based tube provider for the personal care and cosmetic industries, has introduced a new, child-resistant version of its traditional single-dose “Twist’n’Use” packaging.

The combination of a single dose tube with tamper evident features is the smallest, certified, child-resistant cap in the industry, according to Neopac.

“The Twist'n'Use packaging has been created as an unbreakable, easy to handle single-dose tube for sensitive cosmetic formulas and treatments,” ​Monika Ruegg, head of sales and marketing cosmetics at Neopac, told

Big expectations in the cosmetics industry

The pharmaceutical market has already embraced the new tubing pieces, and Ruegg believes there will be major interest from the cosmetics industry in the next few months.

Ruegg informed, the new cap would be best suited to spot on applications for eyes, wrinkles, and hair treatment within cosmetics, or small doses of a special gel for whitening products or pain relief in the oral care market.

The cap remains on the tube at all times, and the ergonomic nozzle allows the user to apply the cream or lotion to target areas without contaminating the contents of the bottle.

The design will only be effective if there is pressure applied as well as the twisting motion, thus rendering the product child resistant.

Setting the benchmark in the cosmetics industry

Ruegg believes the convenience of the Polyfoil technology combined with child safety features meets required specifications in the market. She highlighted the ease of use without removing the cap and precise application as consumer needs which influenced Neopac’s latest development.

“Convenience and child safety features are the benchmarks of our industry. We aim to deliver products which also differentiate from traditional packaging already available on the market.”

The price of the new cap will only be marginally higher than the current Polyfoil tubes, as the materials are all sourced from Europe, and produced in Switzerland.

The increase in price is only affected by the new tools and certification invested in, Ruegg assured

With customers already testing this unit-dose tube system, Neopac are looking to invest in a new tube line for small diameters to keep up with consumer demand for new innovative packaging.
