VILLINGEN-SCHWENNINGEN, Germany , February 25, 2014 (press release) – Galderma Spirig, the prestigious Swiss firm renowned for its high quality skin and sun care preparations, has again selected Mega Airless dispenser technology, this time for its preservative-free sun care brand DaylongTM kids SPF 50 lotion, its DaylongTM ultra face SPF 25 lotion, and for the Actinica® Lotion, a highly effective medical device with broad spectrum UV protection. It has been developed especially for people who are at a higher risk than others to develop skin cancer due to UV exposure.

According to Karl Klein, Sales Manager, Mega Airless, this latest selection of the company’s airless and neutral solutions by Galderma Spirig reinforces the supplier’s core attributes of performance, precision and protection. “Our 10 years of trust with this customer depends on our ability to deliver dispensing solutions that protect their innovative dermatological and dermocosmetic products and deliver very precise dosages,” he said. “This company is renowned for superior products that protect consumers, and makes nearly half of all sun care products sold in Swiss pharmacies. We cannot violate their trust.”

The children’s sun care products use Mega Airless’ 150ml Macro Compact dispenser, the sunscreen in Mega Airless’50 ml Mezzo, while the Actinica® skin care product uses the Mega Airless 75ml Mezzo.

These latest retail launches, sold in pharmacies, were just introduced and are initially available in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, France and the Netherlands.

Mega Airless’ neutral dispenser design provides complete 360-degree application, exact dosing, highly efficient evacuation and formula stability over the life of the product, without discoloration, clumping or clogging.
