What is an airless packaging


Airless packaging

An airless packaging is a revolutionary product delivery system designed to maintain a sealed and air-free environment, regardless of the product level. It incorporates an integrated plastic piston that rises with every use, effectively pushing the product towards the dispenser from the base of the bottle. This innovative design eliminates the common air gap left by traditional pumps.

These airless packaging have quickly gained significance in the cosmetics industry, and the airless technology market is projected to experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.5% over the next three years. Industry-leading experts estimate that the airless market will reach a staggering value of $39 billion by 2023.



How are Airless Pump Bottles Different?

In traditional pump bottles, a tube is employed to draw the product up from the container’s bottom. As the solution’s weight causes the remaining product to settle at the base, a void is created at the top. This method poses two concerns. Firstly, the void becomes filled with air, exposing the product to oxygen. Secondly, pump tubes do not function optimally when only a small amount of product is left, often leading end users to open the bottle and resort to plastic scrapers or their fingertips to access the remaining product.

Airless pump bottles, on the other hand, offer a distinct solution. These bottles feature a unique design that incorporates a diaphragm containing a plastic piston or a small plastic disc. When the pump is depressed, this disc moves upward within the diaphragm, dispensing the product located at the top of the bottle through the opening. This design prevents the formation of voids or cavities inside the bottle, effectively avoiding oxidation and deterioration.

However, it is important to note that not all airless pump bottles are different. In fact, many of them are made from high-quality polypropylene, which is the same recyclable plastic commonly used to manufacture traditional pump bottles for the cosmetics industry. This ensures that products remain securely sealed and provides global beauty brands with convenient access to an environmentally friendly product that is highly sought after by consumers who prioritize sustainable choices in their skincare routines and the brands they support.



Airless Pump Bottles Compared to Traditional Pump Bottles

In addition to the unique design and prevention of air exposure, airless pump bottles offer several other benefits when compared to traditional pump bottles:

Enhanced Product Preservation: The airless pump bottle design prevents the product from coming into contact with air, minimizing oxidation and extending the shelf life of the contents. This helps to maintain the product’s efficacy and quality over time.

Precise Dosage Control: Airless pump bottles utilize a piston or disc mechanism that rises with each pump, ensuring accurate and consistent dispensing of the product. This eliminates the guesswork associated with traditional pump bottles and allows users to easily control the amount of product they apply.

Reduced Product Waste: Traditional pump bottles often leave a significant amount of product unused at the bottom due to the inability of the tube to draw out the remaining contents. Airless pump bottles, however, are designed to effectively dispense almost all of the product, minimizing waste and maximizing product utilization.

Hygienic and Contamination-Free: The airtight seal of airless pump bottles prevents contamination by external factors such as bacteria, dust, and other contaminants. This helps to maintain the integrity and cleanliness of the product, ensuring a hygienic and safe user experience.

Travel-Friendly and Leak-Proof: Airless pump bottles are known for their leak-proof design, minimizing the risk of spills and messes during travel or when stored in a bag or purse. This makes them convenient for on-the-go use and ensures that the product remains intact and secure.

Customizable and Brand-Friendly: Airless pump bottles offer a range of customization options, including the ability to choose colors, sizes, and printing designs that align with a brand’s image and aesthetic. This allows businesses to create a cohesive and visually appealing packaging solution that reflects their brand identity.


Airless Bottle Designs

The term “airless pump bottle” now encompasses a diverse range of containers that incorporate airless technology. Beauty brands have various options to choose from, including single airless pump bottles that offer a convenient all-in-one packaging solution. Additionally, dual chamber airless pumps are available for use with multiple products or for products that require multiple steps to achieve desired results. The inherent nature of airless bottles lends them a sophisticated appearance. However, brands can further enhance the visual appeal of their bottles by opting for customizable features such as color, size, labeling, and spray finishes.
