ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. Smith & Nephew has created a liquid film-forming dressing that dries in less than 30 seconds.

"For the caregiver, the fast-drying spray offers quick and easy application, and long-lasting products save time and money.

Trojan picks up good vibrations

BY Alaric DeArment

PRINCETON, N.J. Condom producer Trojan is launching a new line of vibrators, the company said Tuesday.

Trojan announced the introduction of Trojan Vibrations, which it described as powerful but with soft textures. The first, Vibrating Tri-Phoria, will become available in retail pharmacies and mass merchandisers in 2011.

 

“We’ve built a better vibrator for women and men to enjoy,” Trojan VP marketing Jim Daniels said. “We did our homework, and we listened to our consumers. We know that women and men want trusted and reliable pleasure products, and our world-class [research and development] team responded with a pioneering line of vibrators that will keep up the pleasure quotient during sex, and add some adventure and fun to America’s bedrooms.”

Kerr Drug delivers in a big way

BY Allison Cerra

RALEIGH, N.C. In an effort to further connect customers to their pharmacy, Kerr Drug now is offering free drug delivery to those that are ill, housebound or simply too busy to pick up their prescriptions.

How it works: Kerr Drug customers call their prescriptions in to the store pharmacist and request the prescription be delivered to their home or office, and the customer must sign for their prescription when the medication is delivered. To add even more value to the service, in addition to the prescription delivery, any other item from the store also can be delivered free of charge.

“Kerr Drug is a pioneer in the concept of community pharmacy, and ultimately what that means is finding the best way to serve the people in your community,” said Tony Civello, president and CEO of Kerr Drug. “There are times and circumstances when customers can’t get to the pharmacy, so this is a way to bring the pharmacy to them.”
