Packaging News - Hairstylists' Disinfectant Gets Makeover

MODIFI Products LLC has been in the business of manufacturing liquid disinfectant for cosmetology schools, salons, and barbershops for 70 years. Now, for the first time since 1947, the company is providing their new MOD Clean Disinfectant Pods, an easier alternative to mixing liquid disinfectant for combs, brushes, scissors, and other hairstyling tools.

According to recent packaging news, the new pods are crafted of dissolvable film, containing powdered detergent that is pre-measured for dissolving in 1 quart of water to kill bacteria, germs, viruses, and fungus, and is easy to use while having a minimal impact on the environment. The new MOD Clean Disinfectant Pods ensures proper mixing, and eliminates the cumbersome process used in the past by stylists and schools for mixing disinfectant so that they meet inspector and industry standards.

According to MODIFI CEO, Bennet Parke, the company chose a 100% water-soluble polyvinyl alcohol film that dissolves within seconds of being dropped into water. The pods come packaged in a flexible stand-up pouch that holds 32 pods, a pouch manufactured of 48-ga PET/adhesive/400-ga linear low-density polyethylene. The company felt the stand-up pouch was more environmentally friendly when compared to the rigid container first considered for packaging of the disinfectant pods.

The flexible pouch is also printable according to Parke, who says it offers a small physical profile in addition to a smaller landfill footprint when compared to liquid disinfectant containers, something important to environmentally-savvy customers.
