Single-Use Hand Sanitizers

HMBO's V-Shapes Use One-Hand Opening Technology for Convenience

— July 3, 2020 — Lifestyle
HMBO's single-use hand sanitizer sets itself apart with packaging that can be folded, snapped and squeezed with just one hand, supporting ease of use on the go. The V-Shapes Single-Serve Packaging Technology is not only convenient to use and carry but also gives people more freedom within their personal hygiene and self-care practices. While the packaging technology is especially relevant to hand sanitizers at this time, it also has the potential to be applied to other products.

There's been an influx in hand sanitizer products within the last year, as brands across all industries have been using their resources and expertise to offer protective solutions during a global pandemic. While most hand sanitizers that have emerged are packaged in small bottles or large refill sizes, this single-use alternative makes the most of patented, one-hand opening technology.
