Innovation• Procter & Gamble needs a fragrant tube, so that the customer can smell the fragrance of the inner formulation by simply rubbing a particular spot.• Unilever’s Kissan jam requires a specially “packaged” tube where the product can be filled in high temperature of 90 degree Celsius.• Dabur Honey wants an “ultra-clear” transparent tube which is “as good as glass.”• Essel’s product innovation team has introduced “Etain” — a combo of Essel and Sustain. Etain tubes are made out of post consumer regrind. These are sourced from the popular milk jars from the US supermarkets as they are made out of natural high density polymers. It is then mixed with tube packaging materials for toiletries, cosmetics and dentifrice (read toothpastes) for players like Colgate.
