A few things you need to know before buying plastic packaging
Some people may be new to the cosmetics industry, so they do n’t know much about cosmetics packaging, leading to hesitation in choosing cosmetics packaging, or even choosing a wrong packaging.
Below I will briefly analyze a few things you need to know before buying plastic packaging.
First, you need to understand the material of plastic packaging bottles, because different materials have different properties. For example, if you want your product to be in a plastic bottle, it can be directly seen by consumers. At this time, we recommend that you choose a plastic bottle made of PET, because the PET material itself is highly transparent, and the price is relatively cheaper than acrylic and PS material. You cannot choose PP or PE bottle, because the PP and PE materials themselves are not completely transparent, and consumers cannot clearly see the contents of the plastic bottles.
Second, you need to know what you want to contain in a plastic bottle? If you buy plastic bottles for lotions, you can choose bottles with lotion pump heads. If your product positioning is high-end, you can choose airless pump bottles and acrylic bottles to highlight your product quality. But if you want to fill facial cleanser or skin care lotion, you can choose a small and easy-to-carry plastic soft tube package, because the tube only needs to be squeezed lightly, and the price is very affordable. Or if you want to pack a very sticky cream-like product, we recommend that you buy a cream jar, because cream jars are generally filled with high consistency products, which is convenient and cheap. If it is a foam product, we recommend you to buy a foam bottle.
Third, the compatibility of product contents. Some cosmetic ingredients cannot be exposed to light to prevent volatilization. This is why you need to buy non-transparent and highly protective plastic bottles, such as airless pump bottles and acrylic bottles. Or, if your skin care ingredients are corrosive, you should use some materials with strong barrier properties. The so-called barrier plastic bottle refers to the use of a special processing technology (or combined with a special material at the same time), so that this kind of plastic bottle has the function of effectively blocking the penetration of organic solvents in emulsifiable concentrate pesticides, while retaining the plastic bottle itself is a special plastic bottle with excellent properties such as light weight, many variations (various shapes), and non-fragility.
