What do the small icons on the cosmetic bottles mean?
Did you notice? In addition to barcodes in cosmetic reviews, small icons are often seen on cosmetic packaging. Although they are inconspicuous, they also represent certain information. Do you know what it means?
This common logo for small open cans means the shelf life after opening. M represents the month, and the number represents how many months the product should be used up after it is opened.
The time on the outer box refers to the shelf life in the unopened state. Different skin care products have different shelf life after opening. Emulsion and toner generally have a shelf life of 6 months after opening; liquid foundation usually has a shelf life of 12 months in the opened state; and non-fragrance-free products have a shorter shelf life.
These three kinds of icons are also often found on cosmetics, and they mainly represent environmental protection and other issues.
The first represents the animal-free logo under international standards; the second represents environmentally friendly green, which will not have an impact on the environment; the third usually appears on plastic packaging, with 1-7 in the middle of the triangle Numbers, numbers correspond to different types of plastics for better recycling.
The small icon in the red circle above indicates that because the bottle of the product is too small, you need to know the detailed instructions for use. It is recommended to see the attached paper version of the manual.
In addition, some careful friends have found that there is often a big "e" after the content of the cosmetic packaging bottle. What does this mean?
In fact, this represents an estimate. For example, in the picture above, it may be a little bit more or less than 500 ml, and an e will be marked at the back.
