Glue Dots helped Unilever achieve a cleaner look.

The Problem:

How to maintain superior brand hygiene via packaging

Unilever is a world leader for consumer hygiene, nutrition and personal care products. One of those brands is the ubiquitous Q-tips® cotton swab. To promote their Q-tips Travel Kit, Unilever planned to attach it to the family-size package. The travel kits needed to be bonded to Q-Tip boxes in a clean, seamless way to reflect the brand’s hygienic attributes. Unilever initially explored the use of double-sided tape, but quickly discovered that this type of adhesive didn’t meet its standards for efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Plus, double sided tape can be messy, a huge no-no for an offering that must maintain a clean and presentable appearance.

The Solution:

Glue Dots provide the clean, removable bond for packaging

After a dedicated search, Unilever determined that Glue Dots provided the right mix of cleanliness, affordability and ease of use it was hoping to find. With the help of the GDI team of experts, a range of Glue Dots were chosen as the preferred solution for this and other critical Q-Tip projects.

The Result:

Q-tips maintain brand character and productivity

The Glue Dots solution:

  • Provided a bond that was virtually invisible to the consumer, reflecting the Q-Tip® brand characteristics of cleanliness and hygiene. 
  • Were easily applied using our convenient dispenser box
  • Became the affordable solution of choice that helped increase productivity and efficiency
