Problems in the packaging of the hottest cosmetics

  • Detail

Problems in cosmetics packaging the regulations on the administration of cosmetics hygiene, hereinafter referred to as the regulations, has been promulgated and implemented for ten years since 1990. However, from the current situation of health supervision and management, there are still some deficiencies in cosmetics packaging, which need to be further explored and improved

I. Analysis of main problems

1. The sanitary supervision of cosmetics packaging materials is in a blank stage. Article 8 of Chapter II of the Regulations stipulates that containers and packaging materials that directly contact cosmetics must comply with national health standards. There are many kinds of materials for making cosmetics packaging containers, such as various plastics, glass, metals, etc. if the materials are not tested for several times with a steel sample with a certain hardness, some harmful substances will be dissolved during the storage of cosmetics, which will not only directly affect the quality of cosmetics, but also have a negative impact on the skin. For example, some glass products will undergo alkali dissolution during the storage of cosmetics, causing discoloration, precipitation, separation and pH value change of the contents. Plastic products are generally equipped with additives, stabilizers, pigments, etc. Once these additives are dissolved and react with the contents, they will become the inducement for the deterioration and odor of the contents. However, manufacturers often pursue the beauty and characteristics of the shape. They have not studied what kind of cosmetics should be packaged with what kind of materials and quality. The health department has not put forward specific health standards for cosmetics packaging containers so far, which undoubtedly leaves hidden dangers for the health quality of cosmetics

2. Poor management of cosmetics labels

manufacturers expand sales in order to attract consumers; In addition to using enough brains in the form of packaging, they also make a big fuss on product labels and instructions. Some products have not applied for approval of cosmetics for special purposes, but the instructions publicize that their products have special functions. Be a good matchmaker and bridge, such as "this product can effectively prevent hair loss", "this product has the effect of desalinating facial black spots", etc; Some product labels use absolute language such as "the latest scientific and technological achievements" and "pure natural products". These irresponsible propaganda mislead consumers

II. Improvement measures

in view of the above problems, it is suggested to take the following improvement measures

1. Carry out research on the hygienic performance of cosmetic packaging containers

in view of the current situation that there are no hygienic requirements for cosmetic packaging containers in China, the health department should specially study the hygienic problems existing in the existing packaging materials used for cosmetics, as well as in the process of storing cosmetics, For the dissolution of hazardous substances that may occur, requirements shall be put forward for the raw materials and additives used in the production of packaging containers, and corresponding health standards shall be formulated, so that the health department can have a basis for the health supervision and management of containers

2. Small size, strictly implement the product registration and filing system, and strengthen the review of labels

labels provide consumers with product quality information. In view of the high level of nonstandard labels of cosmetics in the current market inspection, local health departments should strengthen supervision. Health supervisors at all levels, especially grass-roots workers, should not only master the requirements of the regulations on the items to be marked on the labels, but also understand and master the taboo terms for product publicity in the label instructions. At the same time, it is required for enterprises to submit the label sample for approval at the packaging design stage of new products, so as to eliminate the unqualified labels in the "embryonic" state, which not only urges the enterprises to abide by the law, but also helps the enterprises to avoid the economic losses caused by the non-compliance of packaging design with the economic tension of the people such as aerospace, national defense, kerosene chemical industry, transportation, etc
