(MENAFN - GetNews) Domino Printing Sciences (Domino) has teamed up with Procter and Gamble (P & G) – one of the world’s largest and most trusted suppliers of consumer and personal care products – to develop an inclusive, tactile solution for product labeling, to help visually impaired consumers distinguish between bottles of shampoo and conditioner.
Kevin Higgins, Engineer at P & G, says:“We were invited to visit Domino’s specialist laser testing labs in Hamburg, initially to discuss the requirements for the project, and then again for a two-day working session to identify the best possible solution. Together, we chose the Herbal Essences bio:renew range of shampoo and conditioners as a trial product, which could be easily marked by Domino’s D-Series CO2 laser coders to create a differentiating tactile marker.”
The chosen design features a row of raised lines on the bottom of the back of the shampoo bottles – “S” for shampoo,“S” for stripes – with two rows of raised dots in the same place on conditioner bottles –“C” for conditioner,“C” for circles.
To ensure the new stripes and circles approach would work for consumers, P & G presented the newly-coded Herbal Essences bio:renew bottles to the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) in the UK for consumer testing. A follow-up focus group with visually impaired consumers overwhelmingly approved of the new inclusive bottle design.
Based on the success of the initial trial, P & G rolled out the new inclusive design across all its US range of Herbal Essences bio:renew shampoos and conditioners.
