【Regarding the container of ORALPEACE】
ORALPEACE tubes are available in aluminum tube type and laminated tube type.
The plastic tube/container type (made of plastic, the contents that come out are returned, and the amount of the contents that can be seen through the sun can be seen through) is said to be “very cheap” and “open with one hand” There are merits.
However, it has a demerit that “it is not confidential and it easily rots, and it is necessary to use a lot of synthetic preservatives.” Not used with ORALPEACE.
The advantage of the aluminum tube type is that it “has high airtightness and light-shielding properties, and the contents that have been left out once do not return.”
On the other hand, it has the disadvantages of being “unusable” such as “cannot be opened with one hand”, “sometimes overloaded”, and “tube breaks”.
Since the debut of ORALPEACE in 2013, aluminum tubes have been used so far because they are highly sensitive and are best suited for oral pieces that do not use synthetic preservatives.
However, in daily use at medical and nursing care sites and at home, we received many comments regarding inconvenience (cannot be opened with one hand, aluminum is cut, contents cannot be cut out to the end, etc.). ..
On the other hand, the laminated tube type that we started to use in ORALPEACE in 2017 adopted the latest technology, “Aluminum Barrier Lamination (ABL)”, and is a material with layers of “PB, PET, aluminum, PB” stacked from the outside.
By sandwiching the aluminum layer in the laminate, the airtightness and light-shielding properties equivalent to those of aluminum tubes can be ensured, and compared to plastic tubes, the contents do not volatilize and the contents can be protected.
It is more convenient to meet the demand for ease of use at medical/nursing sites and homes while maintaining the functionality of aluminum tubes without deterioration even after being left for 6 months in a aging test (temperature 40 degrees, humidity 75% etc.) The characteristics of conventional aluminum tubes are fully ensured as it was developed with consideration given to its characteristics.
Although the cost of the container is high, it is a tube that combines the advantages of the functionality of the aluminum tube and the ease of use of the plastic tube.
ORALPEACE reflects the voices of many patients and consumers, and we would like to not only research and develop the ingredients but also utilize the latest technology for packaging.
