Visiongain, a London-based business information consulting service company, publicly published a 231-page "2016-2026 Prospects for the Future of Cosmetic Packaging Market Materials and Uses." The report said that the size of the international cosmetics packaging market is expected to reach 32.4 billion U.S. dollars this year. What are the two major forms of cosmetic bottle packaging and how will the future development of plastic and glass packaging be?

    Noveon Cosmetics Processing Co., Ltd. generally speaking, the texture of cosmetics is divided into solid granular (powdery), liquid and lotion-like cosmetics, and creamy makeup. Such a form makes bottle packaging widely used in cosmetics packaging. At the same time, cosmetics itself does not have a distinctive appearance, it must be through a beautiful and unique packaging design, to be able to show its own characteristics.

    As far as the current situation is concerned, plastic bottle packaging has a significant advantage. It is light and inexpensive and can be made into a variety of sizes, transparent and opaque. At the same time, the printing performance of the plastic bottle packaging is very good. The instructions, logos and bar codes can be directly printed on the surface of the container by means of thermal transfer, ink jet, and printing. In recent years, PET resin has developed rapidly in the application of cosmetic containers, and has led to a major change in the replacement of glass bottles with plastics. Plastic products have occupied over 80% of the packaging market for cosmetics and become the most important packaging container for cosmetics.

    With respect to the proportion of plastics, the proportion of bottled glass bottles in cosmetic packaging is relatively small, not exceeding 8%. Novex cosmetics processing shows that glass still has irreplaceable advantages in this field and is still the preferred material for high-end cosmetics in the short term. The reasons for this status are as follows.

    First, the texture of glass bottles is better than plastic bottles. Elegant and elegant is the charm of the glass bottle. It can be made of frosted or transparent. At the same time, the heavy sense of the glass bottle can double the trust of consumers and improve the grade of cosmetics. This is not possible with plastic packaging. . At present, most perfumes are packaged using glass bottles. For example, BVLGARI's women's perfumes in Italy have been adhering to the tradition of exquisite excellence. Their streamlined frosted glass bottles highlight their concise lines. The bottles are soft green and bright, conveying a fresh, elegant and friendly character.

    Second, the sealing of the glass bottles is better. For some cosmetic products that have whitening and nourishing effects, they contain a lot of nutrients like foods, but they are easily oxidized. This requires that their packaging needs to have an excellent seal, blocking the influence of oxygen on these cosmetics. In addition, volatile perfumes also have high requirements for the high barrier properties of packaging. The barrier of the glass bottle is strong, and it is undoubtedly more competent than the plastic bottle in protecting the content. Therefore, some cosmetics that take the high-end line still regard glass bottle packaging as the first choice.

    At present, plastic bottles have a relatively large share in cosmetics packaging and are widely used, but glass bottles also have irreplaceable advantages. Glass cosmetics packaging in the future should still take the high-end line, but also to increase its scientific and technological content, said Nuosheng cosmetics processing.
