Compared with the proportion of plastic, the proportion of glass bottle
packaging in cosmetic packaging is relatively small, no more than 8%. However, glass still has irreplaceable advantages in this field, and is still the material of choice for high-end cosmetics in the short term. The reasons for this situation are as follows.
First, the texture of glass bottle packaging is better than that of plastic bottles. Nobility and elegance are the charms of glass bottles. It can be frosted or transparent. At the same time, the heavy feeling of glass bottles can double the trust of consumers and improve the grade of cosmetics, which cannot be achieved by plastic packaging. . At present, most perfume packaging still uses glass bottles. For example, Italian BVLGARI's women's perfume, its packaging design adheres to the tradition of refinement and excellence, with a streamlined frosted glass bottle to highlight its simple lines, the bottle is soft emerald green, conveying a fresh, elegant and friendly quality.
Second, the sealing performance of glass bottle packaging is better. For some cosmetics with whitening and nutritional effects, they contain a lot of nutrients like food, but they are easily oxidized, which requires their packaging to have excellent sealing to block the impact of oxygen on these cosmetics. In addition, volatile fragrances also have high requirements for high barrier properties of packaging. Glass bottles have strong barrier properties and are undoubtedly more competent than plastic bottles in protecting the contents. Therefore, some cosmetics that take the high-end route still use glass bottle packaging as the first choice.
At present, plastic bottle packaging occupies a large share in cosmetic packaging and is widely used, but glass bottle packaging also has its irreplaceable advantages. Glass texture cosmetic packaging should still take the high-end route in the future, and at the same time increase its technological content.
