Antiseptic Tampon And Method Of Preparing It

August 15, 2006

A method of preparing a tampon made from an absorbent material and containing an antiseptic product has been patented. The method is comprised of heating and melting a hydrophobic excipient and adding an antiseptic product with the melted excipient to form a liquid mixture. A metered quantity of the liquid mixture is poured into a vertically arranged individual tampon packaging sheath whereby the liquid mixture is contained in the bottom of the sheath. A tampon is introduced downwardly into the sheath so that one end of the tampon is immersed in the mixture at the bottom of the sheath. The sheath is then closed and sealed and the mixture is solidified on the tampon by cooling.
