Summary of cosmetics packaging (VII)

regulations on the administration of cosmetics hygiene  hereinafter referred to as the regulations, has been promulgated and implemented for ten years since 1990. However, from the current situation of health supervision and management, there are still some deficiencies in cosmetics packaging, which need to be further discussed and improved

I. Analysis of main problems

1. The sanitary supervision of cosmetics packaging materials is in the blank stage.

Article 8 of Chapter II of the Regulations stipulates that containers and packaging materials in direct contact with cosmetics must meet national health standards. There are many kinds of materials for making cosmetics packaging containers, such as all kinds of plastics, glass, metal, etc.  set multiple experimental parameters. If the materials are used improperly  some harmful substances will be dissolved in the process of storing cosmetics, which will not only directly affect the quality of cosmetics, but also have a bad impact on the skin. For example, some glass products will undergo alkali dissolution during the storage of cosmetics, causing discoloration, precipitation, separation and pH value change of the contents. Plastic products are generally equipped with additives, stabilizers, pigments, etc.  once these additives are dissolved and react with the contents, they will become an inducement for the deterioration and odor of the contents. However, manufacturers often pursue the beauty and characteristics of the shape. They have not studied the nature of cosmetics and the materials and quality of packaging. The health department has not put forward specific health standards for cosmetics packaging containers so far. This undoubtedly leaves hidden dangers for the health quality of cosmetics

2. Poor management of cosmetics labels

in order to attract consumers and expand sales, manufacturers not only use their brains in packaging forms, but also make a big fuss on product labels and instructions. Some products do not apply for approval of special-purpose cosmetics, but the instructions publicize that their products have special functions. Such as "this product can effectively prevent hair loss", "this product has the effect of desalinating facial black spots", etc; Some product labels use absolute languages such as "the latest scientific and technological achievements" and "pure natural products". These irresponsible propaganda mislead consumers

II. Improvement measures

in view of the above problems, it is suggested to take the following improvement measures 

1. Carry out research on the hygienic performance of cosmetic packaging containers

in view of the current situation that there are no hygienic requirements for cosmetic packaging containers in China, the health department should specifically study the hygienic problems existing in the existing packaging materials for cosmetics, as well as in the process of storing cosmetics, For the dissolution of harmful substances that will occur, put forward requirements for raw materials and additives used in the production of packaging containers, and formulate corresponding health standards, so that the health department has a basis for the health supervision and management of containers

2. Strictly implement the product registration and filing system, and strengthen the review of labels

labels provide consumers with product quality information. In view of the high level of nonstandard labels of cosmetics in the current market inspection, local health departments should strengthen supervision. Health supervisors at all levels, especially grass-roots staff, should not only master the requirements of the regulations on the items that should be marked on the labels, but also understand and master the prohibitions on product publicity in the label instructions, and improve the recent ability of self-protection of special production equipment. At the same time, it is required for enterprises to submit the label sample for approval at the packaging design stage of new products, so that the unqualified labels can effectively suppress the pulsating noise produced by high-pressure oil pumps and eliminate it in the "bud", which not only urges enterprises to operate in accordance with the law, but also enables enterprises to avoid economic losses caused by non-conforming packaging design
