What Are Lotion Bottles Made Of
Aug 27, 2018

Bottles filled with lotion can have many different materials - glass, plastic, hose, metal.

When the emulsion is filled into bottles of different materials, the consumer is not sure whether there will be chemical changes between the emulsion and the packaging material, or what will be harmful to the skin.

The containers for the maintenance products are closely related to quality, hygiene, access and preservation. For consumers, in addition to appreciate the aesthetics and creativity of the brand, it is also necessary to know how to choose the most suitable packaging material to ensure the quality of the skin care products, but also how to use and save, in order to let the skin care products No worries.

Let's take the reader to untie the secrets of skin care packaging one by one.

Which packaging material is the safest?

From the perspective of marketing, the cosmetics industry has long understood the various mentalities of consumers, and has long known how to recruit to cater to all kinds of consumer preferences. The quality of packaging materials on the market is varied, and paper materials are excluded. Containers are mainly plastic, glass and metal materials. Have you ever thought about which one is used the most? Which one is best for the most stable? The most used is plastic, the proportion is as high as 80%; the second is glass, only 8%. More use does not mean that plastic is more suitable for filling skin care products. The main reason is that the plastic can be highly variable, and can be done in various sizes, shapes, colors, transparent, and opaque. Lightweight, easy to transport, good printability, and recyclability are all reasons why plastic containers are being used. The fate of plastics is not heat resistant, insufficient light barrier properties, and poor solvent resistance (especially greases). Therefore, the first bottleneck in plastic containers is that it cannot be autoclaved, cannot be washed with water, and cannot be sterilized by light. In addition, considering the stability of the contents, some skin care items are not suitable for being placed in plastic containers. Compared with plastic, the heat resistance, light resistance and solvent resistance of glass materials are absolutely superior. Therefore, unless it is a poor quality glass, the most suitable home for skin care products is a glass container. Metal materials are subject to many restrictions on the molding style. The containers are mainly cylindrical (essential oil bottles) and wide-mouth bottles (lip balms). The filled care products are mostly pure ointments, and most of them are used as caps, caps and other accessories.

How to keep containers of different shapes fresh?

The principle of the use of skin care products is that the hand does not directly contact the bottle mouth or the skin care products. Therefore, the cream bottle should be used as much as possible, and the lotion bottle and the lotion bottle can be kept to zero pollution by pouring. The skin care product of the indenter is better to use the fingertips because it has a relative consistency and is less reflowing. When not in use for a long time, wipe it with alcohol cotton and store it. The product designed by the dropper is the most easily packaged for secondary pollution. Each time it is taken, the internal material is forced to come into contact with air pollution once. However, the cost of this packaging is much lower than that of the indenter and the overall aesthetic of the package is superior to the indenter. Therefore, even if the brand knows that this is the least good, there are still many products packed like this. In addition to the design of the dropper, the wide-mouth cream bottle is also a package that is exposed to the air in a large area; the skin care products of the plastic hose are also used to accelerate the oxidative deterioration of the air once it is taken. Any skin care products that are easy to "eat" into the air and exposed to the air in large areas should be used as soon as possible after opening. This type of packaged product cannot be used until the next year.

The color of the container

The outerwear of the skin care products are all creative, but the lining (especially the plastic cream bottle) that comes into contact with the skin care products is best suited for pure white. Mainly it is easy to observe the changes in the properties of the skin care products, followed by the dye-dissolving products in the plastic. When the skin care products are acidic, oxidizable, pure oil wax or solvent (such as essential oils, alcohol, cleansing oil), if it is a non-glass container, plastic containers are better not to be dyed, in order to avoid coloring materials. The risk of dissolution of the product. As for the glass container that is directly in contact with the inner material, the darker the color, the more favorable the preservation of the freshness of the inner material. For those who are not used to storing skin care products in the drawer cabinet after each use, dark bottles are a good choice. Of course, the more active skin care products, such as anti-oxidant, anti-aging, whitening effect skin care products, the barrier effect of the bottle is enough to keep the value. But don't be fooled by the color of the glass bottle! There are many ingredients that are easy to oxidize and die, such as vitamin C, green tea, white tea, polyphenols, and the color will be deepened every day after leaving the factory. The brand of course knows how to use the color of the container to hide. When you encounter this kind of skin care products, you should be smarter and try to choose a production date.

Future trends in packaging design

The care product packaging is so thorough, it is hoped that the reader will be able to easily look at the appearance of the skin care products and seriously look at the inside of the skin care products. Excessive slashing of gorgeous packaging, thinking that these are marketing tactics, will mistakenly believe that packaging is a good packaging. Only the light and heavy measure is the most intelligent consumer. But let us easily look at the future packaging design trends, will be the "emphasis on green environmental protection" stage, with the concept of love the environment, love the earth, recyclable to lead the package.
