Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 07, 2013
FrozenPeaz were recently nominated for the DuPont Tate & Lyle Innovation Award program for cosmetic and personal care products utilizing Zemea®. The winner will be announced Feb. 25, during the Personal Care Products Council annual meeting in Palm Beach, Florida.
“In developing new products, it pays to be curious”, noted Arthur Blackwood, co-developer of FrozenPeaz® hot and cold packs. Not satisfied with typical gel pack formulations that rely on petroleum-based glycols and glycerin to maintain hot or cold temperatures, the development team behind FrozenPeaz looked for a natural alternative. They found it in Zemea®, a natural, 100 percent biobased ingredient made from corn.
“We did what many others in the gel pack space failed to do and challenged the status-quo,” said MaryCarol Dolivier, co-developer of FrozenPeaz®. “We are delighted to have our hot and cold pack recognized as an innovative product in the personal care market,” she finished enthusiastically.
True innovation requires creative design thinking to understand how to apply new technologies and materials to create evolutionary products that meet consumer needs. The DuPont Tate & Lyle Innovation Award rewards that creativity with an engraved plaque and a contribution of $1,500 made on the winner’s behalf to an approved charity of its choice.
