Plastic bottles or glass bottles for cosmetic packaging materials?

    In fact, there is no absolute difference between good and bad packaging materials. The choice of packaging materials for different products should be considered first according to various factors such as brand and cost. Only appropriateness is the starting point of all choices. So how to better judge whether there should be a plastic bottle or a glass bottle according to the current product, then share some differences between the two and their advantages and disadvantages.

Plastic Bottle

Advantages of plastic bottles

    Compared with glass products, plastic bottles have lower density, lighter weight, adjustable transparency, and are not easily broken; plastic bottles have better corrosion resistance, acid and alkali resistance, impact resistance, and have higher mechanical strength and are easy to shape. , production losses are low.

    Plastic products are easy to color, and colors can be adjusted according to needs, which is easier to achieve packaging design requirements. The most important thing is that plastic bottles will cost relatively lower than glass bottles.

Disadvantages of plastic bottles

    The disadvantages of plastic bottles are also obvious. People’s first impression is that they are not environmentally friendly. Plastic materials are prone to chemical reactions with cosmetics, which can easily cause cosmetics to deteriorate. The overall appearance is relatively cheap and not suitable for high-end routes.

Glass Bottle

Advantages of glass bottles

1. The composition of glass is relatively stable, and it is not easy to have chemical reactions with skin care products. In layman’s terms, it is to pack skin care products in glass bottles, which is not easy to deteriorate.


2. Glass bottles have a sense of luxury. Merchants sell skin care products mainly based on two concepts, appearance + effect. Transparent glass bottles often convey a sense of luxury to consumers, and some transparent or colored bottles are filled. Skin care products look great


3. The weight of the glass bottle is heavier, and it has more weight in the hand and feels more material.


4. Glass bottles are more convenient and more thorough to sterilize than plastic bottles. The easiest and most thorough way to sterilize plastic bottles and packaging materials is to wash them with water, and then bake them at high temperature to sterilize them. It is no problem to wash and bake the glass bottle, because the glass is resistant to high temperature.

Disadvantages of glass bottles

    Glass material is more expensive than plastic material, so the cost of packaging skin care products in glass bottles is relatively high. Glass bottles are easy to break accidentally, and all skin care products inside must be scrapped, which is too easy to waste. The shape of glass bottles is fixed, large and large. It is heavy and inconvenient to carry when going out.
