What are the advantages of acrylic bottles?
A good product
must have good packaging. There are many packaging forms in our market, and today I will talk about the packaging of the acrylic bottle in the packaging.
It is a material that combines the two properties of plastic bottles and glass bottles in our previous bottle packaging. It provides an effective guarantee for the rapid development of our packaging industry, and also fills in the gap that some products in the domestic packaging industry cannot be packaged. It can basically meet the needs of the domestic market, and some products are still exported. One of the major advantages of this pressure bottle material is that it can be further processed. The previous bottle packaging would not be based on customer requirements, but this acrylic bottle can now meet this requirement, as long as you can think of it, we can now complete it.
Acrylic packaging bottles for cosmetic containers have good transparency, light transmittance of more than 92%, good anti-aging performance, and can be used at ease outdoors. Acrylic packaging bottles have a wide range of varieties, rich colors, and good comprehensive performance. Provides diversified options, which can be dyed, and the surface can be painted, silk screened or vacuum coated.
Acrylic bottle is actually an organic material that combines acrylic and methacrylic materials. This material not only functions as a glass bottle but also a plastic bottle. It embodies the functions of both On the pressure bottle, its effect is also very obvious. It has good transparency, more aging resistance than ordinary bottles, light weight, strong resistance to chipping, and good insulation. The important thing is that it is resistant to corrosive things such as acids and alkalis. The shape can also be processed to become beautiful. If it is used in the field of cosmetics, it would be suitable, and its production has been well represented nationwide.
In the field of cosmetic bottle packaging, cosmetic plastic containers and acrylic bottles
are widely used in the packaging of high-end creams, lotions and other cosmetics, and are well received by the market. Acrylic bottle not only has the characteristics of plastic: drop resistance, light weight, easy coloring, easy processing, low cost, etc., but also has the characteristics of glass bottle with beautiful appearance and high-quality texture. It allows cosmetics manufacturers to use the cost of plastic bottles to obtain the appearance of glass bottles, but also has the advantages of resistance to falling and easy to transport.
Impact of Shower Products
So how big is our plastics problem in our bathrooms? For context, in the United States alone, 550 million empty shampoo bottles
are thrown away each year. This figure does not include conditioner, body wash, or other bathing products -just shampoo bottles. Compounding this problem is the fact that only a fraction of these bottles are recycled. Instead, most end up directly into our rubbish bins. Most people don’t keep separate recycling bins in their bathroom, so empty plastic containers from the bathroom tend to miss out on recycling. With the average American using 11 bottles of shampoo a year, these large, bulky plastic containers are a significant contributor to many households’ annual waste.

Shampoo or Bottle of Water?
Would you like some shampoo with your bottle of water? Yes, you read that correctly - the majority of your shampoos and conditioners are water, with only about 10% being actual products. When cleaning products changed from solid bars to liquids, water was added and thus creating the need to be stored in a plastic container. While shampoo bottles are not quite single-use plastic bottles, they are not far off.
In addition to the plastic waste produced by the bottles, the increased carbon footprint also needs to be considered. Larger and heavier bottles that need to be shipped create a bigger carbon footprint than lighter weight smaller bars and solid products.
These shower gel bottles
and shampoo bottles are made entirely of soap for a zero waste alternative.
We are all looking for brilliant solutions to fight plastic pollution. A Berlin-based product designer came up with the concept of a zero waste soap bottle as a clever alternative to the plastic ones. Plastic pollution is indeed a serious matter and it’s actually one of the biggest environmental issues of our time. Some food brands are embracing the use of eco-friendly packaging alternatives such as paper packaging and banana leaves. But we can’t say the same for toiletries and cosmetic products. Every year, an individual uses 11 bottles of shower gel and 10 bottles of shampoo on average. And where do these plastic bottles end up? Most of them end up on landfills and can blow away so, they make their way to drains and they even clutter rivers and the ocean.
In order to reduce the harmful accumulation of plastic waste in the environment, Jonna Breitenhuber created a new kind of bottle. This ingenious packaging is entirely made of soap that can hold liquid such as shower gel and shampoo. And when you’ve used up its content, you can use the bottle as a body soap or detergent. No waste.
A customised creation in hand wash bottles
Companies seeking even greater stand-out shelf appeal for their hand wash turn to Robinson for its innovative and diligent approach to manufacturing custom-made packaging.
With our heritage in plastic packaging, we are trusted to transform designs, bringing them to market with speed of execution, and being highly responsive in integrating new technologies into existing processes. Our expert team have either worked closely with or in FMCGs and other leading brands. It’s this in-depth understanding of the needs of large companies, married with our agility as a smaller business, that means we are impressively fast paced in helping our customers sprint to market.
One example of our custom creations is our 500ml hand wash PET bottle with pump. While it is produced at our Minsk plant in Poland, one of the benefits of our European-wide operation is that we can draw on support as and when needed from our design and technical teams in Europe and the UK.
As is the case with all our customers’ projects, we applied robust project management to the entire process, from stakeholder meetings to discuss the initial concept, to regular consultation and the creation of a range of solutions to put to key decision makers.
Opting for a single-stage injection stretch blow moulding (ISBM) process enabled the creation of a highly attractive bottle, incorporating perfectly rounded contours.
ISBM is primarily used to manufacture products
where uniform shape or wall thickness is particularly important. It combines the benefits of two technologies in one: the highest neck precision which can be partnered with blow moulding’s extensive possibilities in shaping. It also ensures high breakage resistance and is a process comparatively low in cost.
Our knowhow in such projects extends, of course, to our choice of materials.
The detritus that we leave in our glowy-skinned, bouncy-haired wake is immense. It contributes in no small part to the fact that by the middle of this century — that's not as far away as you think — the ocean may contain more plastic by weight than fish. (Maybe you even ate some recently: A quarter of fish sold at markets in California and Indonesia, for example, has been found to contain human-made debris — either plastic or fibrous materials.) The amount of end-of-life plastic packaging, which includes bottles, jars, bags, and "other," surrounding U.S. products has increased by over 120 times since 1960. In 2018, in the U.S. alone, almost 7.9 billion units of rigid plastic were created just for beauty and personal care products, according to Euromonitor International. "But we recycle," you say? Sadly, not so much.
Twenty years ago, as a wee beauty editor, I would thrill at the crinkle of cellophane as I opened a new face cream, and the excitement would mount as I pulled back layers of cardboard. Oh, and look — a tiny spoon. Today, those trappings feel superfluous. And worse: irresponsible. I can no longer look at a plastic tub without imagining it bobbing on the high seas. Enough already with all the packaging.
Rumblings of change have begun. The L'Ore?al Group says it will source up to 50 percent of its packaging from recycled material by 2025. Procter & Gamble has a program that puts Pantene in refillable containers, and Unilever's Dove has created its first-ever refillable deodorant. Brands like Burt's Bees are creating their own mail-back recycling programs.
