LINDAL and Alternative Packaging Solutions (APS) have partnered to create the miniMist, a continuous dispensing system that offers a reusable and sustainable alternative to aerosols.
Using a screw top container, the consumer twists the top of the dispenser which compresses a spring and preloads an internal chamber. The product is then dispensed when the top button is depressed, causing the spring to be released.
Once empty, miniMist can be refilled by unscrewing the dispenser and replenishing the product inside. miniMist can be used in both an upright and upside-down bottle position. It is not pressurized, which simplifies and reduces the costs of filling, product testing, storage and shipping, LINDAL said.
“Consumers now have the benefits of continuous spray without the complexity of a pressurized package,” said Brad Barron, Chief Innovation Officer of APS. “We believe that miniMist’s sustainability benefits, improved user experience and simplified supply chain will transform the industry.”
LINDAL will market the miniMist. Samples will be available later in 2021. The bottles will be customizable in shape, size and materials, the company said.
“We are very pleased to work on this project alongside APS,” said Alex Piagnarelli, Sales Director of LINDAL North America. “This provides another example of LINDAL working closely with our supply partners to bring an innovative product to life.”
