Neopac develops packaging for vegan vitamin D product

The tube packaging for Luce D3 from Streuli Pharma offers barrier protection, metered dosing and portability

Hoffmann Neopac has partnered with Streuli Pharma to launch a dropper tube for direct, precision administering of a vegan Vitamin D formulation. The solution for Streuli Pharma’s food supplement Luce D3 product houses the vegan Vitamin D solution in a tube with a metered dropper for safe, accurate dosages, the company says.

Initially launched at pharmacies throughout Switzerland in September of last year, Luce D3 aimed to address the dearth of Vitamin D that children and adults tend to experience during the winter months, when sunlight is less plentiful.

Aided by the barrier properties of Neopac’s signature Polyfoil tube, the vegan formulation is hoped to attract the increasing set of consumers who prefer non-animal-derived products. The dropper system dispenses droplets individually by applying pressure to the tube, with each drop containing 200 IUs of vitamin D. The tube allows the vegan Vitamin D3 product to be directly applied into the mouth.

Using Neopac’s Polyfoil 19mm dropper tube with screw cap, the solution features inserts on the dropper mechanism designed for liquid, serums or oily content. This helps to enable accurate dosing by adjusting the mechanism to the proper bulk texture for drop size.

Neopac claims products housed in Polyfoil solutions can have a longer shelf life compared to those stored in conventional polyethylene or polypropylene packaging.

“Streuli’s new vegan-friendly formulation speaks to the growing set of consumers whose health consciousness includes a lifestyle free of animal-derived products,” said Ralf Künzi, Sales & Business Development Manager Ophta & Medic for Hoffmann Neopac. “The combined Polyfoil and dropper tip technologies offers an innovative protection and delivery system for a product that must be administered accurately. We are also proud of the package’s ease of handling and portability.”
