Cosmetic Tube Packaging are usually made of plastic, glass or aluminum, the latter is the least used, there are also some of ceramic or even wood, but the three most important elements used are these. Regardless of preferences personal of each, there are a number of objective factors that make one material better than another, let’s analyze what is the more suitable for a Cosmetic Tube Packaging.
What material best preserves the product?
The one that best preserves: Plastic or tinted glass. I don’t take an aluminum boat to the beach and an opaque plastic preserved better the product and the use of UV filters can be avoided, depending on the product that is clear, a perfume will always need filters UV. However glass is a very inert, inert material means that it does not react with any element, for something the laboratory supplies are glass so a glass tinted, to reduce the passage of light, it would also be a good material.
What material is more practical?
The most practical: Plastic, is the one that weighs the least, does not break, not easily deformed, transparent or semi-transparent allow you to see how much product is left and it is ideal for small size travel. Aluminum is also quite practical, but some cosmetic packaging tube weigh and in aerosols it is impossible to know how much product remains.
Which material is more sustainable?
The most sustainable: The least sustainable would be plastic, since that when recycled it loses properties and must be mixed with new plastic, plus some are very difficult to recycle. In fairness, glass is not biodegradable, a bottle takes a whopping 4,000 years to degrade, aluminum takes between 80- 150 years and for example a polypropylene plastic cap takes about 100 years.
That’s why friends, we have to recycle, that’s why and why it is recycled, we save the production of new glass or aluminum with the consequent reduction in energy that this implies.
In short, plastic is the least sustainable material and perhaps glass would be the most eco-friendly of the three.
What material is more versatile?
The most versatile: Without a doubt the plastic, more than 6 types of different plastics to produce cosmetic packaging tube, each with different properties, which allow us to adapt and personalize the packaging design, depending on our needs.
The designs glass containers are very limited and practically reduced to jars or bottles for liquids, aluminum is something more versatile cans, tubes and sprays can be produced, you know pressurized cosmetic tube in a can, such as lacquer, foam or deodorant, the latter must be covered by a layer of resin epoxy.
While we are here, I take this opportunity to say that glass and crystal are different things, although I call it all crystal, I say it in case you read an entry in which I said that the container is glass, I am aware that it is glass but it escapes me, the glasses and the bulbs are glass, the cosmetic tube and canning jars glass, the glass should not be thrown into the green container because melts at a different temperature, must be recycled by separated.
