New Jersey-based Mega Pumps chose last week's HBA show as the
launching pad for its latest dispensing innovations for the beauty
industry - Mega Duo airless dispenser and Mega Pump Tube.

Mega Duo is a dual-cylinder airless dispenser designed to optimize the delivery and efficacy of skincare products with active ingredients, whereas Mega Pump Tube brings airless pump technology to premium tube packaging. The Mega Duo dispenser is said to be ideal for products that require protective airless packaging, particularly for those products that are optimized if sensitive or active ingredients remain separate if their efficacy is going to be maximized. The dual chamber allows the two formulations to be mixed immediately before use, providing an extended shelf-life for active ingredients that can often be compromised when mixed with other ingredients. Likewise, the company also says that the Duo dispenser has been manufactured with both green issues and economy in mind, featuring fewer parts and, in turn, less material. "With skin care formulation evolving on a daily basis, and active ingredient delivery systems moving from exotic to the norm, the demand for innovative dispensing technologies such as dual-cylinder pumps is greatly decreased," said Terry Sweeney, director of sales. The pump can also be used on a wide variety of products, having been specifically designed to easily dispense thick gels, creams, and pastes, that are often difficult to dispense, without leaving a residue. Likewise, the new Mega Airless Tube combines all the advantages of high barrier tubes with that of airless dispensing technology, making it easy to use right to the end. Silab claims that the advantages to the manufacturer include precise repeatable dosing, optimal filling capabilities, high-quality decorative options and oxygen and moisture protection to enhance product integrity. "When it comes to protecting sensitive formulas and preventing contamination from oxygen and moisture to extend a products shelf-life, packaging is playing a more crucial role than ever," said Sweeney. Both of the new pumps are available in a number of sizes, with the Mega Airless Tube coming in 25ml to 300ml sizes, all dosing at 0.30ml; while the Mega Duo coming in 2 x 15ml (30ml) and 2 x 25ml (50ml), both dosing at 0.25ml.
