The safest material for skincare packaging
The mystery of skincare packaging starts with a bottle of lotion. The lotion bottle can be made of many different materials-glass, plastic, hose, metal. When putting the lotion into bottles of different materials, consumers are not sure whether there will be a chemical change between the lotion and the packaging material, or what ingredients harmful to the skin will be dissolved. The containers for skincare products are closely related to quality, hygiene, access, and preservation. For consumers, in addition to appreciating the brand’s aesthetics and creativity, they also need to know how to choose the most suitable packaging material to ensure the quality of skin care products. They also need to learn how to use and store them to make skin care products rubbed on their faces. No worries. The following will lead readers to unlock the secrets of skin care product packaging one by one. Which packaging material is the safest? Which packaging material is the safest? From a marketing perspective, the cosmetics industry has long understood the various mentalities of consumers and knows how to make moves to cater to various consumer preferences, so you don't have to think that others are fools, you are the only one who is smart! At first glance, the packaging materials for skin care products on the market are diverse. Excluding paper materials, the containers for skin care products are mainly plastic, glass and metal. Have you ever thought about which one is most used? 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%. And more use does not mean that plastic is more suitable for filling skin care products. The main reason is the high degree of variability of plastics, all sizes, shapes, colors, transparent and opaque can be done. Light weight, easy transportation, good printability, and recyclability are all reasons why plastic containers are more selected. The fate of plastics is heat resistance, insufficient light barrier properties, and poor solvent resistance (especially greases). Therefore, the first bottleneck of plastic containers is that they cannot be sterilized by high temperature steam, cannot be washed with water, and cannot be sterilized by light. In addition, considering the stability of the contents, some care products are not suitable for packing in plastic containers. Compared with plastics, glass is absolutely superior in heat resistance, light resistance, and solvent resistance. Therefore, unless it is low-quality glass, the most suitable home for skin care products is glass containers. Metal materials are subject to many restrictions on the molding style. The containers are mostly cylinders (essential oil bottles) and wide-mouth bottles (lip balm). Most of the skin care products filled are pure ointments, which are mostly used as bottle caps, bottle caps and other accessories. How to keep containers of different shapes fresh How to keep containers of different shapes fresh? The general principle for the use of skin care products is not to directly touch the mouth of the bottle or the skin care products in the bottle. Therefore, use digging sticks as much as possible for the cream bottles, and the lotion bottles and toner bottles can be dumped to keep zero pollution. Pump skin care products, because of their relative consistency, do not reflux, it is best to use the fingertips to pick them up. When not in use for a long time, wipe it clean with an alcohol cotton pad and save it. The product designed by the dropper belongs to the packaging that is most prone to secondary pollution. Every time it is taken, the internal material is forced to contact air pollution once. However, the cost of this kind of packaging is much lower than the indenter, and the overall aesthetic appearance of the packaging is better than that of the indenter. Therefore, even if the brand knows that this is the worst, many products are still packaged in this way. In addition to the dropper design, the wide-mouth cream bottle is also a packaging that exposes a large area to the air; the skin care products packed in plastic hoses may also be brought into the air every time they are used to accelerate the oxidative deterioration.
All skin care products that are easy to 'eat' into the air and exposed to a large area of ??air should be used as soon as possible after opening. This kind of packaged products should not be used up for the next year (probably all of them are oxidized and deteriorated). The inner universe of the container color The inner universe of the container color The outer clothing of the skin care product packaging is creative, but the lining that contacts the skin care product (especially the plastic cream bottle) is pure white. Mainly it is easy to observe the changes in the properties of skin care products, and secondly, it is the products that can avoid the elution of dyes in plastics. When the skin care product is acidic, easily oxidized, pure oil wax composition or solvent (such as essential oil, alcohol, cleansing oil), if it is a non-glass container, it is better to use non-staining plastic containers to avoid coloring. Risk of dissolution and penetration into the product. As for the glass container directly in contact with the inner material, the darker the color, the better the preservation of the freshness of the inner material. For people who are not used to storing skin care products in a drawer or cupboard every time they are used up, dark bottles are a good choice. Of course, the more active the skin care products, such as the skin care products with anti-oxidation, anti-aging, and whitening effects, the light blocking effect of the bottle must be sufficient to maintain its value. But don't be fooled by the color of the glass bottle! There are many ingredients that are easy to oxidize, such as vitamin C, green tea, white tea, and polyphenols, which will darken day by day after leaving the factory. Of course, the brand knows how to use the color of the container to hide it.
When encountering skin care products with this ingredient, be smarter, try to choose a closer production date. The future trend of packaging design The future trend of packaging design The packaging of skin care products is so thorough, it is nothing but hope to lead readers to look at the appearance of skin care products and take a serious look at the inside of skin care products. Excessively cutting down on gorgeous packaging, thinking that these are all marketing tactics, will mistakenly think that back-to-nature packaging is good packaging. Only with a proper balance is the smartest consumer. But let us easily look at the future packaging design trends, which will be a stage for 'emphasizing green and environmental protection', leading the trend of packaging materials with the concept of loving the environment, loving the earth, and recyclable. But please don't forget! This is just a coat.
