Plastic bottles are being lightweight, and glass bottles are also being lightweight.
On the one hand, the lightweight of glass bottles saves a lot of raw materials, which means cost reduction for a manufacturer of essential oil bottles and glass bottles.
On the other hand, as the weight of the glass bottle is reduced, the logistics cost during transportation will also be greatly saved. The many advantages of lightweight glass bottles make the entire industry have high expectations.
However, the lightweight of glass bottles is not as good as it seems. The lightweight technology of glass bottles is difficult to overcome. The body of the glass bottle must be able to withstand a certain amount of pressure. When the bottle wall becomes thinner, the ability of the glass bottle to withstand pressure will drop rapidly. So this kind of lightweight technology is difficult to overcome.
For people's consumption habits, the heavy texture of glass bottles can better reflect the grade and luxury of a product. Many high-end products are packaged in glass bottles because of this consideration. Lightweight makes the glass bottle lose this advantage. In addition, similar to the wine glass bottle, wine has certain requirements for the color of the glass bottle, not the thinner the better.
Regarding the lightweight of essential oil bottles and glass bottles, each of us should have a more sober attitude and not blindly.
