Currently, almost every cosmetics products use plastic or glass packaging designed to hold liquid-type or paste-type products. It is hard for makers to create eco-friendly packages using paper as they go soft when exposed to moisture. Cosmetics makers favor plastic packages because of their durability and ability to absorb shock. Also, plastic packages are lighter, making them more cost-effective in large-quantity shipping.
Kolmar Korea said in a statement on November 11 that 80 percent of the new eco-friendly package was made of paper but its cap that fits on the nozzle had to be produced in plastic. Some foreign beauty product companies have already adopted paper packages. La Roche-Posay, a French cosmetics company, released a tube-type sunscreen product using a paper tube in May.
