Personal Care Items Often Lack Tamper-Evident Features

A new white paper, “Personal Care Industry Trends,” from PMMI Business Intelligence, finds consumers are not demanding T.E. bands, and CPGs are reluctant to add cost.

“There is no distinction between retailers and consumers,” says Paula Feldman, Director, Business Intelligence with PMMI.

“In some cases the demand for tamper evidence comes from a retailer who does not want to shampoo (for example) to spill in the store or warehouse,” Feldman reports.

For track & trace, Unique Device Identification (UDI) technology is mandated by US FDA for personal hygiene products (easily readable and scan-able codes for track and trace serialization), but not for personal care products. However, the industry is expected to increasingly use some sort of track & trace technology such as QR (Quick Response) code, owing to the growing sales through the online/offline retails, inventory management, and concern over counterfeit.
