Controlled dosing gel pack

A custom package for Colgate-Palmolive's Mennen Speed Stick® Gel anti-perspirant/deodorant allows users to control precisely how much gel is dispensed from the package.

That's done by a dispensing dial that clicks as it turns providing audible feedback to the user. Supplied by Creative Packaging (Buffalo Grove IL) the bottom-filled package also has a unique liner inside the cover to prevent inadvertent product dispensing while capped. For container strength clarity and gloss as well as chemical compatibility Eastman's (Kingsport TN) Eastapak® polyethylene terephthalate copolyester was selected to injection-mold the barrel applicator screw and applicator dial. Other components are molded of polypropylene and polyethylene. The 2-mil PP wraparound p-s labels are screen/letterpress-printed in 4 colors by Quality Assured Label (Minnetonka MN).
