What Should Be Included in Cosmetic Packaging?


The container must be a well thought out solution that prevents product deterioration and helps maintain its quality. As part of the marketing of beauty products, it must be a container with beautiful appearance.

Ideally, containers should be made of durable materials to give the product a long shelf life. Through consumer use, it must last longer. Over time, frequent opening and closing of containers may cause losses. Finally, the container must protect the product to some extent so that it is still a safe product for human consumption. In other words, the container must protect the product from dirt, dust and bacteria.


A label must also be included in the container to clearly show basic information about the product and the manufacturer. These labels include contact information, ingredients, expiration date, warnings, and instructions. Labels can not only identify products and their sources, but also help consumers understand the facts that will not cause confusion or misleading.

How Are Cosmetic Products Packaged?

For liquid, cream cosmetics and skin care products, the general packaging process includes filling, sealing, capping, loading into the product box, filming the outer box, etc.

For dilute and aqueous liquids, full-automatic linear or rotary liquid bottle filler are often used to fill in bottles. The advantage of this cosmetic packaging machine is that it can quantitatively and automatically fill materials, and the parts in contact with the products are made of stainless steel, which fully conforms to GMP standards in production. If your industry does not consider large-scale filling machines for the time being, semi-automatic liquid filling machines are also a good choice.

For thick materials, most of them need to be filled into flat cans or tubular containers, so full-automatic cream filling and capping machines, cosmetic tube filling machine will be used.

Sealing and capping are two steps that most cosmetic packaging will take. Generally, special aluminum foil sealing machine and capping machine are used to seal and cap bottled products. There are also some machines integrating filling, sealing and capping, which make the product packaging faster and more convenient.


Can Makeup Packaging Be Recycled?

According to the data, the plastic packaging produced by the beauty industry reaches 153 billion pieces every year. Even with the development of science and technology, some packaging containers can be recycled, but most packaging is still difficult to recycle, or even completely impossible to recycle.

The recycling of beauty packaging is usually very difficult. "A lot of packaging is made of mixed materials, so it's hard to recycle," wingstrand explained The pump head is one of the common examples, which is usually made of plastic and aluminum springs. "Some packages are too small to extract useful materials."

However, the recycling of cosmetics packaging is not completely hindered. Some enterprises with a strong sense of environmental protection have independently developed technologies to make recyclable cosmetic packaging containers. In addition, the call of the brand can also play a role in the recycling field. For example, it can launch an environmental protection campaign to guide consumers to return empty bottles to the brand for regeneration, which has also increased the marketing effect and environmental image of the brand.

The most important thing for the recycling of cosmetics packaging is to solve the problem from the source, reduce the packaging as much as possible, and reduce the demand for recycling and composting. Moreover, by allowing customers to purchase sustainable cosmetic packaging, the production of packaging can also be reduced.
