Popping Dropper / Dropper bottle redesign

Popping Dropper
Popping Dropper

Many droppers for cosmetic products feature a screwcap top. When the user unscrews the cap to use it, the glass tube is lifted, making it impossible to reach the bottom of the bottle without retightening. This causes a lot of trouble for the user and leaves chemical residues in the bottles. We redesigned the part holding the glass tube. The elastic structure between the tube and the bulb provides the right amount of tension for the tube to retract and extend. When you unscrew the cap, the rubber structure releases the tension so the tip of the tube can always touch the bottom easily.
