Reasons why most skin care products use plastic containers


Have you paid attention to the packaging of the product after many years of skin care? Maybe you don't know that the design of these bottles can not only reflect the brand's skin care concept, but also affect the use of skin care products.

Plastic bottle VS glass bottle

Friends who have used skin care products will find that there are three main types of materials in containers for skin care products: plastic, glass and metal.

Among them, plastic is the most used, accounting for up to 80%, followed by glass, while metal only accounts for 8%.

The main reasons why most skin care products on the market use plastic containers are as follows:

Light weight, convenient storage and transportation, easy to carry and use

Good barrier, good sealing, high transparency

Good processing performance, various sizes, specifications, shapes, everything

Manuals, barcodes, anti-counterfeiting marks, etc. are easy to color and print, and will not fall off

Good chemical stability, low toxicity, hygiene and safety



However, plastic containers also have their limitations. Plastics are less heat resistant, have limited light blocking properties, are easily contaminated on the surface, and are more troublesome for recycling. For some high-end cosmetics or those that are volatile and easy to emit fragrance, plastic containers are not the best choice.
Compared with plastics, glass is absolutely superior in light resistance, heat resistance, and solvent resistance. The market advantages are as follows:

Good transparency, the material body is clearly visible

Good barrier properties, can provide good quality guarantee conditions

Good temperature tolerance, high temperature sterilization, and low temperature storage

Abundant raw materials, recyclable, no pollution to the environment

Good chemical stability, non-toxic and tasteless, clean and hygienic

Can vacuum packaging really last longer?

I would like to ask everyone, when choosing skin care products, do you like pouring out? Or squeeze? Or push type? Don't ask, ask is the push pump head design!

The vacuum pump head design of the skin care product uses the retraction force of the spring to prevent air from entering the bottle, resulting in a vacuum state, thereby achieving the "only out but not in" use result. Each time you press the pump head, the small piston at the bottom of the bottle will move upwards. When the material comes out, no air will enter. As the material decreases, the space becomes less and less, so that a product is not used from opening to use. Worry about the ingress of air. The advantage of this is that it can prevent the product components from being oxidized and stabilize its activity; it can inhibit the reproduction and growth of microorganisms to a certain extent and avoid pollution. This replaces the addition of any preservatives and preservatives, so that the product can maintain the stability of the formula during use. Theoretically speaking, the storage time can be extended, but most skin care products are liquids (such as moisturizing water, lotions, etc.) and cannot be completely vacuumed like solids, so the extended storage time is also limited.
