Innovative dispenser manufacturer Airspray International announced an international call for entries for the second annual Airspray Formulation Challenge (AFC), a program designed to unleash the creativity of product developers.

This year, the Challenge will address the potential of new instant-foam products in the fast-growing Sun Care/SPF 20+ and after-sun product category, Robert Brands, Airspray's Chief Executive Officer, announced.

Open to manufacturers, contract packagers, distributors and formulators, the product entry can target women, men, adults or children, as long as it is developed for the Airspray instant foam dispensing technology.

Awards include (for direct customers, contract packager or distributor) a corporate award of 10,000 Euro and a personal award for the formulator by way of a trip to Holland during Tulip Time.

Winner of The 2006 Airspray Formulation Challenge will be announced at HBA 2006, scheduled this year for September 12-14, in New York City. Submissions must be received by August 15, 2006. Formulations will be evaluated by a panel of industry experts.

Degussa, the global market leader in specialty chemicals, was named winner of the first annual Airspray Formulation Challenge, for its shaving foam entry.

The company is convinced that instant-foam sun care SPF products represent a major growth segment. “In the US, western Europe and in relatively immature sun care product markets such as eastern Europe, women and, increasingly, men, are becoming aware of the need to provide their skin with UV protection, during leisure activities, and whenever they are exposed to the sun,” Brands said.
