The Green Future of Cosmetics Packaging
For a cosmetics product, consumers are undoubtedly concerned about the product; However, the packaging of cosmetics has actually gathered a lot of efforts from producers, and even accounts for a significant proportion of product prices. Taking 2015 as an example, the market size of China's cosmetics packaging industry is about 25.67 billion yuan. In the quarter of 2016, the market scale of China's cosmetics packaging industry reached 6.69 billion yuan, achieving operating revenue of 5.46 billion yuan, and a total profit of 330 million yuan. According to Visiongain, a British business information consulting service company, the international cosmetics packaging market is expected to reach 32.4 billion US dollars in 2016.
The traditional cosmetics packaging mainly consists of paper, plastic, glass, metal, etc. With the continuous penetration of the concept of green environmental protection, the packaging of cosmetics has also begun to set off a "green wind". Various innovative and environmentally friendly materials are continuously used in the industry.
A transparent non crystalline copolyester with glass like transparency, glossiness, chemical resistance, impact resistance, and recyclability. It has been used in perfume bottles, cosmetics bottles, lipstick tubes, cosmetics boxes, etc.
Bamboo fiber and bamboo powder are used as raw materials, replacing logs, pearl cotton, and other cushioning packaging materials. It can reduce the use of wood pulp and reduce damage to trees; Moreover, bamboo grows faster and the processing process is more water-saving.
Replacing the same wood pulp with rice husks reduces the use of wood. At the same time, the product can also have the color of natural bran, giving a more environmentally friendly feeling.
Although new environmentally friendly materials are emerging in endlessly, and green cosmetics packaging has gradually become the mainstream, some enterprises are over packaging. Such a result will not only increase the cost of products and the purchasing burden of consumers, but also cause a serious waste of resources. Even using environmentally friendly materials cannot make up for the lack of green.
Therefore, the green future of cosmetics packaging not only requires green materials, but also requires enterprises to possess green concepts, thereby promoting the transformation of the entire cosmetics industry chain towards a greener direction.
