Owing to its low cost, light weight, versatility, durability and other factors, plastic is a popular material in cosmetic packaging. For personal care products, plastics are a material of choice for manufacturing shatterproof and “no-spill” bottles, jars, tubes, caps, and closures.
Plastic packaging, such as bottles, cans, compacts, and tubes, has a market share of 61 percent in cosmetics and other personal care goods, where bottles are the most widely used containers, accounting for 30 percent of the market, according to the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI). Cosmetic bottles produced from HDPE are the most common and least expensive, which are economical, impact-resistant, and maintain a good moisture barrier. Lotion bottles come in all forms, sizes and shapes, where certain lotions are contained in capped tubes. These tubes are usually made from plastic, depending on their size. However, there are lotion bottles that are also made of plastic, but instead of the capped tops, they have the pump dispensers. This is helpful for many people who do not want to have to screw a top on and off, or not want to flip up a cap.

In addition, PP plastics are the most prevalent type of plastic used for cosmetic containers. These can however, also come in a more inexpensive PET plastic or a higher-end plastic acrylic. Normally, acrylic plastic is transparent and resembles glass. The benefit of this form of material over glass is that it is not susceptible to breakage. PP plastic, however is more affordable than acrylic and typically comes in plastic containers shaped circular or tube-like. To suit the design or advertisement of the cosmetic product to be sold, PP plastic containers may be shaped into heart shapes, character shapes, or square shapes. For face creams, lotions, foundations, lip balms, powders, and other cosmetics, jars and pots are mostly used, where the size varies from 20mm to 60mm and can accommodate from 25ml (or less) to 250ml.
