A foam swab tip applicator is a molded plastic component with a specially designed foam applicator adhered to plastic. A variety of different types of foams are available, depending on the composition of a customer’s formula and the nature of the application. Many of the foam tips can also be offered in different configurations for specific applications. The applicator allows the user to activate the package with a gentle squeeze of one hand, rupturing the patented internal membrane. Another gentle squeeze then dispenses the contents onto the applicator tip. The rate and flow of the product is easily controlled by the user. The product is designed for large volume topical applications in a variety of markets, including cosmetic and personal care, health and beauty aids, pharmaceuticals, toiletries and spa products. This version is also ideal for industrial applications of lubricants, solvents and cleaning agents.
