What are the commonly used materials in the design of cosmetic packaging?
Feb 03, 2018

The packaging materials of cosmetics are mainly glass bottle, plastic bottle, vacuum bottle and hose four kinds.

One, glass bottle

The most used in the market is the glass packaging material, which has a good barrier to the odor of gas water, and looks beautiful and easy to shape. Our common glass bottle cosmetics are mainly skin care products (cream, emulsion), perfume, essential oil, nail polish and so on. These capacity requirements are less than 200ML.

Glass material is more consistent, more modeling, processing technology and rich cap collocation diversification, a common bottle shaped with cylindrical, oval, flat, prism, cone, manufacturers often develop series of bottle shaped. There are spraying, transparent, sanding, translucent color adjustment, silk printing, hot gold, hot silver and so on.

The thickness of glass bottle will not easily damaged, or in cold conditions are easily content broken, should test the reasonable capacity when filling, transportation and application of paper with single spaced, the products should be equipped with the box in the box, and can get more support to the anti vibration effect.


Two. Plastic bottles

Plastic bottles in cosmetic packaging have developed rapidly. The material of our common plastic bottles are PP, PE, K, PET, acrylic, AS, ABS and so on. Here a repeat after three, is also the most common.

PET:PET material for environmental protection material, with high barrier performance, lightweight, shatterproof properties, chemical resistance, transparency is very strong, can be made into a pearl, nonferrous metals, magnetic white, transparent, widely used in gel loading.

Acrylic: material for injection bottle, chemical resistance is poor, it can not be directly mounted paste with liner barrier, filling is not easy to prevent my paste into between the liner and the acrylic bottle, so as to avoid the occurrence of cracks, the transport packaging requirements are higher, due to scratching after looks especially obvious, high permeability, sense thick wall, but the price is very expensive.

AS、ABS:The transparency of AS is better than that of ABS, and the toughness is better.


Three. Vacuum bottle

The vacuum bottle is generally cylindrical and specifications of 15ml - 50ml, individual 100ml, the overall capacity is small, rely on the principle of atmospheric pressure, can avoid the pollution caused by cosmetics in the use process, vacuum bottle has anodized aluminum, plastic plating and colored plastic, the price more expensive than other ordinary containers, ordinary quantity is not high.


Four. Tube

The hose is divided into single layer, double layer and five layers of hoses, which are different in anti pressure, anti penetration and hand feel, such as five layers of pipes, including outer layer, inner layer, two adhesive layers, and another barrier layer. Features: excellent gas barrier performance, can effectively prevent the infiltration of oxygen and odor gas, while preventing the content of aroma and effective composition of the exudation.

The process consists of a circular tube, oval tube, flat tube, flat tube. Flat tube, super flat tube than the other tube process more complicated, new pipe is developed in recent years, so the price is relatively expensive.

The above four kinds of cosmetics are commonly used in packaging design, they are used for cosmetics packaging main container, and are very popular with cosmetics companies.
