Skin Care Technology Company

Development of innovative bath products

A UK leading manufacturer in bath and foot spas. They have an established market for innovative bath products.

We identified as qualifying R&D, activities undertaken where they had:

  • Undertaken work to expand on their recent development of Slime baff to produce a thicker more thixotropic liquid which could be delivered via a “water bomb “ type balloon plus a variety of water pistols. 
  • They had to develop in conjunction with balloon manufacturers an easy tie solution because slime is much more slippery than water.
  • By working with balloon manufacturers they were able to develop a balloon that was self-sealing, i.e. does not require tying in the conventional manner.
  • The balance of polymers was critical and this balance had to be achieved mainly by trial and error.
