The structure of the carton is innovative and it allows the contents to be removed easily. The judges felt that the hexagon construction was eye-catching and when seen from above, it’s unusual shape resembles a tooth.

The flap enables simplified filling of the applicators into the carton.

The double-sided wall gives the pack strength and stability. After opening, the “feet” on the pack gives additional stability.
