“(A number) of different concepts were studied to come up with the final design,” said Edward Quinn, national director of sales—perfumery and cosmetics, Valois of America. “The launched version of Imagin took four years of research and development, considering both the product and process.”

As demonstrated by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare’s launch of Listerine PocketMist, miniature spray products that fit in a pocket or purse have a viable place in the market. Rexam Dispensing Systems’ Crystal SP5 fits miniature bottle necks (molded or tubular glass), and it utilizes an “invisible” and neutral motor.

The future looks bright for spray technology in general, and the consumer is sure to benefit. It is reasonable to expect that this technology will continue to produce better and more flexible delivery systems—aerosol tips, materials, spray mechanisms—that live up to every task demanded by both consumer and formulator.
