Discover the Hygienic and Highly Precise Micro Bristle Applicators from GEKA

  • GEKA GmbH

Product Requirements have changed POST-COVID and GEKA has expanded its product portfolio of hygienic, precise applicators by introducing ready-to-go solutions with micro bristle technology.

Precise Drug Application 

The basic idea behind developing micro-bristle applicators is to apply liquid or semi-solid substances to the skin with greater precision and hygiene and improve the existing applicator systems.

Applications with cotton buds, flocked applicators, nail varnish brushes, or fingers offer a lower level of hygiene and precision and cannot preserve total sterility since the fibers can adhere to the skin during application.

In contrast, micro-bristles offer hygienic, as well as dot and track precision due to their composition and geometry. The bristles do not spread, and thanks to adjusted rigidity and perfect resilience, they can also reach hard-to-access areas.

Advantages of GEKA micro bristle applicators (MBA):

  • Soft micro bristles allow for precise, hygienic, and soft product application
  • Exact matching of the applicator to the application, product, and customer requirements
  • Higher dosage and application precision
  • Pure pharma-grade plastic: no use of glues, fibers, metal or additives
  • Reduced product waste

Market Fields for MBA applicators: 

  • Dermal care
  • Oral health care
  • Eye care
  • Nail care
  • Diagnostic
  • Ears, nose, and mouth care
  • Hair and scalp treatments

As part of the Swiss company medmix, GEKA applies its long-term expertise in applicators with the know-how of the  medmix healthcare division to launch a new type of applicator that meets the requirement of post-Covid customer demands in terms of safety and hygiene.
