Cosmetics packaging: plastic and glass according to the essentials

over the years, China's cosmetics market has grown at an average annual rate of 15%, and has begun to take shape. In 2002, the whole market achieved a total sales volume of 45billion yuan. Among them, skin care products account for about 36%, hairdressing products account for 30.96%, and fragrances account for 20%. It is predicted that its total market sales will reach 80billion yuan in 2010. As the main packaging materials in this market, plastic and glass will also have a greater place to play

most general cosmetics are liquid, lotion or paste, and do not have a distinctive appearance. It can only show its own characteristics through exquisite and unique packaging design. Therefore, cosmetics generally rely on packaging in order to achieve good sales. In addition to metal, plastic and glass are currently the main cosmetic packaging container materials, of which plastic is the most used

although there are many kinds of cosmetics with different functions, in terms of their external morphology and packaging adaptability, they mainly include the following categories: solid cosmetics, solid granular (powdery) cosmetics, liquid and lotion cosmetics, and the resulting cutting heat cannot be quickly released from paste cosmetics. According to different forms, the packaging forms are different

according to the current situation, because plastic is light and cheap, it is easy to form large-scale production. It can be made into bottles of various sizes, transparent, opaque and various colors, and has good printing performance. Instructions, labels and bar codes can be directly printed on the surface of containers by means of heat transfer, inkjet, printing and so on. Therefore, plastic products have occupied more than 80% of the packaging market of cosmetics and become the main packaging container of cosmetics. In the past, cosmetics were usually packaged in glass bottles. However, due to the single variety of glass containers, even if there is a good design idea, due to the limitations of technology and materials, it is often impossible to achieve

plastic materials have great advantages in this regard. They are not only rich in sources, but also have good molding performance. They can be made into plastic containers such as bottles, cans, boxes and other plastic containers with various structures and shapes, and can be used for various decoration and decoration designs

in addition, in recent years, the application of PET resin in cosmetic containers has developed rapidly, which has led to a major change in Koizumi's use of three new media instead of glass bottles

however, we should also see that although glass bottles account for no more than 8% of cosmetic packaging containers, they still have irreplaceable advantages in this packaging field and remain the preferred material for high-end cosmetics in the short term

the charm of glass bottles lies in their thoroughness, purity, nobility and elegance. Compared with plastic bottles, its heavy sense of massiness makes people feel more confident and responsible; The unique visual effect of frosted glass bottles is far beyond that of plastic bottles

many perfume manufacturers prefer to use this kind of container to package their products in the process of experiment. For example, the packaging design of Italian Bvlgari women's perfume adheres to the tradition of exquisite excellence, highlights its simple lines with streamlined frosted glass bottles, and the bottle body is soft emerald green, conveying fresh, elegant and friendly characteristics

in addition, it has high barrier to gas, which also makes glass bottles the preferred packaging material for volatile and volatile products such as perfume

under the condition that the test data and functional requirements are not many and the digital display can meet, cosmetics, especially whitening and nutritional cosmetics, contain a lot of nutrients like food, but they are very easy to be oxidized. This puts forward high requirements for the sealing of packaging. Glass bottles have strong barrier, which is undoubtedly more competent than plastic bottles in protecting the contents
