Briefly describe the characteristics of the two main materials plastic and glass in cosmetic container packaging

Most of the general cosmetic containers are in the form of liquids, creams or pastes, and do not have a bright appearance. It must be exquisite and unique packaging design to show its own characteristics. Therefore, cosmetic containers generally rely on packaging to achieve good sales. Plastic and glass are currently the main cosmetic container packaging materials used, and among them, the amount of plastic is more.


Although there are many types of cosmetic containers with different functions, in terms of their external shape and suitability for packaging, there are mainly the following categories: solid cosmetic containers, solid granular (powder) cosmetic containers, liquid and emulsion cosmetic containers , Creamy cosmetic containers, etc. According to different forms, the packaging forms are different.

As far as the current situation is concerned, because the plastic is light and cheap, it is easy to be produced on a large scale, and it can be made into bottles of various sizes, transparent, opaque and various colors, and the printing machine can be used. Thermal transfer, inkjet, printing and other methods directly print imitation bills, logos, and bar codes on the surface of the container. Therefore, plastic products have occupied more than 80% of the packaging market for cosmetic containers and become the main packaging container for cosmetic containers. In the past, cosmetic containers were generally packaged in glass bottles. However, because of the single variety of glass containers, even if there is a better design concept, it is often impossible to achieve due to technical and material limitations.

In the future, cosmetic containers and packaging may only use one material, which is light and easy to take, and can resist all kinds of pollution. The shelf life will be greatly extended. The important thing is that it can be recycled and reused. Hope to see its emergence in the near future!
