n fact, there is no absolute difference between good and bad materials. Different products should be selected according to the brand, cost and other factors. The material of packaging materials should be considered first, and only appropriate is the starting point of all choices. So how to judge whether there should be plastic bottles or glass bottles according to the current products, then we will share some differences between the two and their advantages and disadvantages.

Plastic bottle

Advantages of plastic bottles

Compared with glass products, plastic bottles have small density, light weight, adjustable transparency and are not easy to be broken; plastic bottles have good corrosion resistance, acid and alkali resistance, impact resistance, high mechanical strength, easy to shape, and low production loss. Plastic products are easy to color, and color can be adjusted according to the needs, which is easier to achieve the packaging design requirements. The most important thing is that the cost of plastic bottles is relatively low compared with glass bottles.

Disadvantages of plastic bottle

The disadvantages of plastic bottles are also obvious. People's first impression is that they are not environmentally friendly. Plastic materials are easy to react with cosmetics and easily cause deterioration of cosmetics. As a whole, they look relatively cheap and are not suitable for high-end routes.

Glass bottles

Advantages of glass bottle

1. The composition of glass is relatively stable, and it is not easy to produce chemical reaction with skin care products. Generally speaking, skin care products are packed in glass bottles, which are not easy to deteriorate

2. The glass bottle has a high-level sense. The main marketing concepts of skin care products sold by merchants are two concepts: appearance value + effect. Transparent glass bottles often convey a high-level feeling to consumers, and filling some transparent or color skin care products is very good-looking

3. The weight of glass bottle is heavier, and it has more weight in hand, which makes it feel more material.

4. The sterilization of glass bottles is more convenient and thorough than that of plastic bottles. Plastic bottles, packaging materials disinfection is the simplest, the most thorough method is washing, and then high temperature baking disinfection. The glass bottle can be washed and baked, because the glass is resistant to high temperature.

Disadvantages of glass bottle

Glass is more expensive than plastic, so the cost of using glass bottles for skin care products is relatively high. Glass bottles are easy to be broken by accident, and all the skin care products inside will be scrapped, which is too easy to waste. The glass bottles are fixed in shape, bulky and heavy, which is not easy to carry when going out
