Colgate Introduce New Products and Packages


Colgate-Palmolive has introduced a first-of-its-kind transparent toothpaste tube for its Max Fresh gel with exclusive mouthwash beads. The package has been made possible by the development of a new film that provides ultraviolet light barrier that protects the toothpaste and beads from discolouration due to exposure to UV light, moisture and oxygen. The tube is packed in a shiny metallic paperboard outer carton that is die-cut with a viewing window that allows the toothpaste to show through the transparent tube. The special patent-pending proprietary coextruded multilayer ultraviolet light barrier film has been developed by Sealed Air Corporation. The tube structure uses a complex 275 micron thick film. The transparency not only allows the product to show through, it also enables consumers to see how much product remains in the tube. Traditionally, providing UV light barrier in films has caused them to become hazy and lose transparency. Colgate converts the printed film into tubes in-house.
Colgate-Palmolive have also launched a new product called Wisp, which is an on-the-go single-use toothbrush that comes equipped with a dab of toothpaste. The disposable mini-toothbrush contains a sugar-free breath freshening bead in its bristles and does not need rinsing. It comes in various flavours. The product is blister-packed in units of four and inserted into a carton. The pack also contains a pick that can be used in the spaces between teeth.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
