Per usual, Hamacher Resource Group’s new product team was busy in September. Awash in the 299 products that made their debut last month, the Waukesha, Wis.-based company sifted through 13 OTC products, 81 wellness products and 205 beauty products to find five that made a mark based on their innovation and earning potential.
1. Refresh Relieva PF Eye Drop
Allergan’s Refresh Relieva PF eye drops are formulated to provide temporary relief from burning and discomfort due to eye dryness, including post-operative dryness from Lasik procedures. The formula is preservative-free and is packaged in a multidose bottle that features a double lockout system to keep drops sterile.
2. Children’s Tylenol Dissolve Packs
The first new product from Tylenol in more than 10 years, Children’s Tylenol Dissolve Packs are designed to dissolve in seconds on a child’s tongue without water. The product is made for children who may not like liquid pain relievers and might still not be able to swallow pills, as well as for families on the go, Johnson & Johnson Consumer said.
3. Aquaphor Ointment Body Spray
Beiersdorf’s Aquaphor brand continues to innovate. The new Aquaphor Ointment Body Spray is hypoallergenic, as well as preservative- and fragrance-free. It is meant to be easy to apply on hard-to-reach areas, allowing for it to soothe and relieve dry and rough skin.
4. Ezy Dose Stainless Steel Locking Container
Apothecary Products’ latest offering is giving patients a way to securely store their medication, prescriptions or personal items. The stainless steel locking container is especially timely amid conversations about opioid abuse and misuse, HRG said.
5. Dapple Baby Shampoo and Body Wash – Fragrance Free
Dapple made its name in the baby category with bottle and dish soap, and now is expanding into baby personal care products that include lotions, calming bath liquids, and 2-in-1 shampoo and body washes. The products are made with plant-derived ingredients and essential oils. They also are free of brighteners, dyes, artificial fragrances, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil and fillers.
