Cosmetic cans and tubes are usually made of metal, such as aluminum or tin. Aluminum prevents the growth of bacteria and is one of the most recycled materials on the planet. Most collapsible tubes are made of aluminum, and tin and lead also account for a large proportion of cosmetic packaging.
Metal can be used as an unbreakable packaging to provide the strongest protection for the product. They can also protect the product by preventing moisture or high temperatures. For companies trying to convey an environmentally friendly image, metal is highly recyclable. Another major advantage is that the metal can be made into various shapes and sizes to avoid waste. Overall, metal is a cost-effective, long-lasting, and sustainable solution.
