[Reuters] public China packaging requirements for this plastic packaging are almost similar, so much for health and beauty protection plastic packaging have common characteristics: falling resistance, durable and easy to carry. The data are from the latest data report on the PMMI's assessment of the personal care market, while the packaging and Processing Technology Association estimates that the global personal care market will grow at an annual rate of 5.5%.
Rules for the separation of cosmetics packaging
The pattern of the triangle cycle can be basically guessed that it can be recycled. But what do you mean by the small boxes with the numbers and the strange love patterns? Most of the cosmetics packaging are printed with a small box with numbers, all kinds of books and some arrow circular mark, logo, whale pattern of daily necessities brought back from India, while Thailand is the huddle of rabbits.
This logo is the most common, almost every kind of cosmetics have, in addition to sheet mask. The number above indicates how much time the cosmetic is used after unsealing, otherwise it is better to discard. 12M means 12 months, 6M is 6 months, of course.
Animal signs, as I said above, rabbits or whale, often represent no animals being killed (no animal experiments or tests). In fact, as shown by the "jumping rabbit" (leapingbunny) is the symbol of animal experiment under the international standards, by American consumers cosmetics Information Alliance (TheCoalitionforConsumerInformationonCosmetics, referred to as CCIC) is responsible for the management of the implementation also has a special website. This sign is unusual, especially for big name cosmetics.
In fact, the "green label" is the first green packaging green logo in the world, published in 1975. The green arrow indicates the product or packaging color is green, can be recycled, in line with the requirements of environmental protection and ecological balance.
The triangle cycle logo is made by the relevant organizations of the plastics industry in the United states. In other words, only plastic packaging will have this logo. However, there is no rule that the two signs will appear on a product package at the same time. Triangles are often accompanied by numbers, and 1-7 of the figures represent different kinds of plastic: let people simply do not bother to learn about the similarities and differences between different kinds of plastic materials, so they can simply join the ranks of recycling.
The center has a love sign of V, which means that in addition to animal testing, the product does not include animal ingredients or by-products. For example, if the product contains beeswax and other ingredients, you can not use this sign. For vegetarians, this standard is definitely not allowed to be abused.
This sign is easier to understand. Pointing to an open book indicates that the product itself is too narrow in space to obtain more detailed information from the enclosed instruction book. I only saw this sign on a piece of French cosmetics. It does have a stack of novels and books.
Lower case e signs are also common, appearing in the number of milliliters, indicating net content.
ECOCERT refers to the organic product certification, does not contain genetically modified material, product formulations, synthetic fragrance, animal ingredients, such as ethylene glycol sis. It is divided into two types: one is the organic cosmetics, require more than 90% plants in the formula for organic plant, while more than 10% must be from certified organic farms; the other is natural cosmetics, is more than 50% for the organic plant, from more than 5% certified organic farms.
The sign above was born in France in 1991, and the following one came from the United states. Since 2002, the US label USDAOrganic has replaced dozens of local organic labels. No genetic engineering is involved in the manufacture of the product. No ionizing radiation or any composition has been produced during the production and processing of agricultural products. Only 100% organic products are allowed to post USDAOrganic signs, which is one of the most stringent certification standards.
Cosmetics packaging inadvertently overwhelmed
With the increase of the market brands, a lot of negative news also come a variety of products -- 2006 SK-II exposed to contain banned substances chromium and neodymium; 2007 leaded lipstick events is involved in more than 60% of the U.S. market cosmetics brand. This kind of news makes consumers pay more attention to the safety of cosmetics, so many customers will look at the cosmetics formula at the time of purchase to make sure whether they contain harmful substances.
However, harmful substances are not only derived from the formula of cosmetics, and an unqualified packing material can also cause unavoidable harm to the safety of cosmetics.
Why have the great influence of packaging material security cosmetics are safe for cosmetics? Because once the package itself contains toxic and harmful substances in excess, it may be slowly released into direct contact with it in the cosmetics, the cosmetics quality to the bad direction change, resulting in great harm to the human body. The danger is similar to the food's effects on the human body - which can be absorbed by the body and can have severe consequences. Therefore for the detection of harmful substances in cosmetics packaging materials will be not avoided, and in view of the packaging material migration, the standard materials of relevant national food packaging is a very good reference.
