[ Feature ] BEST PERSONAL CARE Winner: Vitabath by Viva Healthcare Viva Healthcare Packaging provided polypropylene tubes injection molded with an in-mold label. Metallic effects in the label are achieved by printing over a foil then overlaminating with a cast polypropylene film. The overlaminate also protects the tube from scuffing. All components are produced in Viva's vertically integrated plant in North America. The tube and cap are both injection molded in one process. BEST PERSONAL CARE Runner-Up: Mitch Stone by Plastube Plastube's proprietary polyfoil tube provides superior barrier properties with the wafer thin invisible barrier coated on both sides with PE plastic, reports Audrey Levesque of Plastube. "The tube retains its shape until completely emptied," she says. Plastube employed offset printing for decoration. "The aesthetics of the tube's inherent brilliance combined with the double gradient look and the full coverage print provides our customer with a competitive advantage," says Levesque. 6 magenta cyan yellow black Tube News • February 2014 ES381953_TN1402_006.pgs 01.28.2014 00:30 UBM
