Analysis of cosmetic bottle material selection

Cosmetic bottle packaging has always been a key production area for packaging manufacturers. Compared with other packaging, cosmetic bottle styles and materials are becoming more and more diversified. Today, we will talk about the material of cosmetic bottle packaging.

What is the material of the cosmetic bottle?

According to the material, it can be divided into plastic, glass, and aluminum. These three materials are the most common cosmetic bottle materials. Among them, plastic and glass are mostly used for bottles, such as cream bottles, essence bottles, and set bottles. Aluminum materials are mostly used in tube products, such as lipstick tubes and mascara tubes, which are light and comfortable to handle.

First consider the attributes of the product, and then determine the materials used

For example, if you need a vacuum bottle, you can only look for plastics. If you are in the high-end market, you have to look for glass bottles and acrylic bottles. If your product is iterative fast, it is recommended not to consider aluminum tubes, because aluminum The delivery period is long, so different products are considered, the material will be very different.



Consider the combination of product and packaging material costs

For example, when looking for plastic bottles, there are many categories of plastics: PET plastic, PP plastic, PETG plastic, AS plastic. When the products go to the low-end market, acrylic and glass bottles will cause a lot of cost pressure. It can be replaced by other plastic bottle products. For example, although the hardness of PP plastic is not as good as that of acrylic, its transparency and hardness are still acceptable, and the important thing is that it is cheap.
