Every now and then a product comes along that revolutionizes plastic modern design. Airless pump bottles have been such a design, changing the way cosmetics are both treated and packaged. There’s a good reason airless pump bottles have become the latest trend in plastic cosmetic packaging. Many sensitive skin care products, serums, and natural and preservative free creams become degraded through contact with air. Airless pump bottles suction the liquids out of the bottle without making contact with air giving products a 15 percent longer shelf life. The bottles have a sleek, stylish look that makes them more visually appealing and ideal for beauty products.
How Airless Pump Bottles Dispense
Airless pump bottles have no tubes for dipping into the product. Usually the tubes can’t reach the final amounts of product and they sometimes do not work well with varying consistencies. The airless pump dispenser works by having a tiny bit of air push under a plate at the bottom of the bottle that pushes the product upwards. When the pump is pressed, it creates a vacuum effect which pushes the product up and makes sure that all of the product is used. The bottle doesn’t need to be upright in order to work because the pump will push the liquid up regardless of which way it leans.
How Airless Pumps Help the Environment
Airless pumps are an environmentally sound option as well. Sometimes propulsion in a bottle relies on the help of an aerosol, which uses a propellant like nitrous oxide or dimethyl ether. Airless packaging doesn’t rely on anything other than an internally structured air pressure to push the product out. Aerosols are known to be environmentally hazardous and the airless pump bottle offers an effective alternative to this. The other common type of bottle used in cosmetic packaging relies on a dipping tube to suction the product up into it. This is often unreliable and it is very difficult to get all the product once the supply begins to run low.
One of the most useful benefits of the airless bottle dispenser is how it prevents the oxidization of sensitive products that may be within the bottle. Oxygen has the ability to speed up the life span of a product. It also has the ability to cause decay through oxidization, which is when a substance loses electrons, caused by an oxidizing agent, such as oxygen. The result is decay and a shorter shelf life. The airless pumps prevent the product from interacting with oxygen, maintaining the life span of the product for longer. This includes helping to maintain the products color and health, preventing product discoloration.
Airless packaging is extremely fashionable right now, coming in many styles and looks that catch the eye. The variety of styles and sizes virtually suit any need. The double plastic gives them a high end aesthetic feel that also allows a creator to charge more for their product should they choose the airless packaging. Ultimately airless pumps offer a wide range of benefits; environmentally sound design, stylish appearance, preservation for healthier products that last longer, and ease of use.
