Heritage Brand Looks to the Future
The oldest deodorant brand in the world is looking to the future. Once packaged in small tin cans in the late 19th century, Mum roll-on deodorant is now housed in classically restyled containers with clear and black glass supplied by the Gerresheimer Group (www.gerresheimer.com). Mum is manufactured by Swiss cosmetics company Doetsch Grether.
A high waist invites the consumer to pick up and hold the smooth, cylindrical package. Enormous style is given to the design by the texturing of the glass, in which traditional shapes dissolve. Clear glass is used for five variants, which are distinguished by caps and printing in different colors, while black glass is used for the sixth product.
