Slightly less than 50 per cent of all tubes produced in Europe go into the cosmetics sector. The outlook for this market segment continues to be good. Rising incomes in eastern European countries and a continually improving standard of living will further intensify demand for cosmetic products. This is particularly true also for the markets of Asia and South America with their fast-growing economies and a lifestyle that is increasingly matching that in Europe and North America.
Depending on the contents, aluminium, laminate or plastic tubes are used in the cosmetics industry. Important products are hair colourants and hair care, skin care preparations, and soap and other cleaners. And not forgetting shaving cream.
With its outstanding properties, the tube scores in particular in the cosmetics sector, where constituents are sometimes expensive: exact dosage, economical in use and precise application thanks to practical closures and special dispenser solutions. With roller-ball systems and other intelligent solutions available for an improved and more direct effect. In addition, the tube is very hygienic and well protected against product counterfeiting.
