Classification of cosmetic packaging materials

There are many kinds of materials for packaging cosmetics. Do you know? Now Qingrun plastic helps to understand the classification of cosmetic packaging materials.

Cosmetics packaging materials are widely used, including plastic, metal, glass, paper, rubber, elastomer, ceramic, enamel and other types. Let's look at some commonly used cosmetics packaging materials.

(1) Plastic

Plastic is the most commonly used packaging material. The materials include polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) and ethylene glycol modified polyethylene terephthalate (PETG).

Plastic packaging is a lightweight material with low price; It has the advantages of excellent physical properties, good chemical stability, simple and diverse processing and molding, good printing and decoration properties, and high impact resistance strength. These advantages make it more and more widely used in the competition of cosmetics packaging materials.

(2) Glass

Glass is a traditional packaging material, which is mainly used for cream,lotion, essence, essential oil, nail polish and other products with small capacity. Large capacity cosmetics rarely use glass packaging materials. According to the type of bottle mouth, glass bottles can be divided into wide mouth bottles and narrow mouth bottles. Solid cream cosmetics such as face cream and smeared facial mask are generally used in wide mouth bottles, and narrow mouth bottles are generally used in aqueous and lotion cosmetics.

Due to its inertia, impermeability, transparency and beauty, glass packaging occupies an important position in high-end cosmetics markets such as perfume. However, the disadvantages are large weight, easy to break, inconvenient transportation, and complex molding and processing, which limit the application of glass bottles.

(3) Metal

At present, the metal packaging materials for cosmetics on the market are mainly aluminum, which are commonly used in products such as lids, lipstick, powder, etc. The market has certain limitations, with less use. At present, pure metal packaging is also becoming less and less. The combination of metal and plastic packaging forms are more popular, such as Metal Overshell cap, Aluminum Airless Bottle, Aluminum perfume atomizer and so on.


(4) Paper

Paper materials are mainly used for the packaging of solid cosmetics and the outer packaging of some products. They have the advantages of easy processing, low cost, suitable for printing, light weight, foldable and recyclable, but poor water resistance. As a common manifestation of paper materials, cartons are usually divided into three layers and five layers, each of which is divided into inner paper, corrugated paper, core paper, face paper, etc. For example, the novel design can be used as a means of promotion. Common styles include ordinary carton, aircraft box, button bottom box, tooth box, etc.

(5) Soft rubber

Cosmetics packaging and sealing or soft touch, straw products are all soft rubber materials, silicone rubber and elastomer materials. With the development of the times, cosmetics packaging materials are environmentally sustainable and new, and the application of elastomer packaging materials is more and more extensive. TPE elastomer has excellent adhesion with PC, PC/ABS, ABS, PA, PVC, etc. can be used for co-extrusion and two-color injection molding, and has low surface friction, smooth feel and other characteristics, It is widely used in bottle body surface, bottle cap, bead, safety& safety bottle head, compact seal, essence extrusion head, massage contact, soft rubber handle, etc.
