To help CCA achieve the necessary child resistance for its Bikini Zone product pack the company contacted Rexam Closures (Evansville IN) and Cebal Americas (Norwalk CT).

The product a topical analgesic cream for relief of skin irritation caused by waxing or shaving contains 2% lidocaine. The 1-oz tube is a multilayer lamination that includes foil and polyethylene supplied by Cebal. Rexam provides the polypropylene child-resistant cap.

Rexam’s Tube-Lok® “push and turn” cap system is a one-piece “bayonet-style” closure that passes CPSC requirements for child resistance and senior-friendly use. The closure is equipped with a plug seal and a large-bore orifice that was added to prevent clogs and enable smooth dispensing of the gel-like product. To use the cap consumers simply push down on the closure and turn.

Retailing for $5.95 Bikini Zone is now available in major drug and grocery stores nationwide. —ALR
