Graham Packaging Plastics creates 200-ml PET bottle for England-based pharmaceutical manufacturer Thornton & Ross' popular Hedrin head-lice treatment; new bottle replaces smaller HDPE bottle

LOS ANGELES , July 16, 2012 () – Chalgrove, England-based Graham Packaging Plastics Ltd. has created a new 200-ml polyethylene terephthalate bottle for Thornton & Ross Ltd.'s Hedrin head lice brand, according to a July 16 report from Packaging Europe.

Thornton & Ross have already been using Graham Packaging's high-density polyethylene bottle in a smaller size for their flagship delouser, but decided it was time for an upgrade to the larger PET 200-ml bottle, using a specific mixture to improve bottle handling and performance on the filling line.

Thornton & Ross is one of the largest independent pharmaceutical manufacturers in the U.K., and have been using Graham Packaging Plastics' products for more than a decade. When the company was searching for a supplier for new packaging for Hedrin, choosing Graham Packaging seemed a natural choice.

Huddersfield, West Yorkshire-based Thornton & Ross supplies health care products, disinfectants, and household products. Hedrin is said to be the first non-pesticide to gain a license in the U.K. for the eradication of head lice. Hedrin has no smell and is not harsh on the skin or hair.
