  • Ultra-thin
  • Thin-walled
  • Medium walled
  • Heavy-walled
  • Mailing

ThreeBamboo produces PE and laminated tubes such as mono-layer, double-layer, multi-layer, aluminium laminated plastic tubes, plastic laminated tubes, and high glossy laminated tubes. You can order any of these.

4. How many kinds of products can be stored in a cosmetic tube?

Although there are many types of products that can be stored in a plastic tube, if we talk about the cosmetic tubes made by ThreeBamboo, it is fit for storing cosmetics items like ointments, creams, lotions, moisturisers, etc. There are many other types of cosmetics products that can be stored if you want.

The key thing to focus on here is that the tubes made by ThreeBamboo will not infiltrate the nature of the stored product in any way. For example, it will not hamper the fragrance or ingredients of the product. Thus, ensuring the absolute pristine nature of the product.

5. Are cosmetics tubes eco-friendly?

Well, there are many products out in the market that are primarily meant for storing cosmetic products. However, all of them are not eco-friendly. As mentioned above, we are a cosmetic tube supplier that makes our cosmetic tubes out of PE plastic which is completely recyclable. The lid of these tubes is made of Bamboo, which is also easy to decompose.

Therefore, as a whole product, our cosmetic tube is eco-friendly and recyclable.

6. How are plastic packaging tubes made?

The plastic packaging cosmetic tube has a bit different production process as compared to other Bamboo products. Plastic needs to be treated in a whole different way, so here is how ThreeBamboo makes cosmetic plastic tubes!

  1. The production process begins with the resin. The resin is taken, and the plastic extrusion process takes place. In this step, the plastic is melted and formed into a continuous profile.
  2. Post extrusion, the melted plastic is moulded in the required shape and left to dry.
  3. The shaping taking process takes time; therefore, it is left untouched.
  4. Post the plastic tube has taken the required shape, offset printing is done.
  5. The step after offset printing is based on user preference. The tube can either be labelled or coated.
  6. After this step, silkscreen printing is done if the users ask for it. Further, the tubes are hot-stamped.
  7. After hot stamping, the process divides into two ways:

Way 1: The hot-stamped tubes are fed to make orifice > sealing > inspection > packaging or orifice > foil sealing > assembling > inspection > packaging.

Way 2: The hot-stamped tubes are fed for head cutting > adding secondary joint > making orifice >  sealing > inspection > packaging or head cutting > adding secondary joint > making orifice > foil sealing > assembling > inspection > packaging.

The packaged tubes are then shipped to the respective customers across the globe.

7. What kind of plastic is used in cosmetic tube packaging?

There are various types of plastics that can be used in cosmetic packagings, such as:

PET plastic: PET plastic is super lightweight and durable. As compared to other plastics, this one has a clear glass-like look and is available in various colours. The temperature resistance of this plastic varies between -40°F to 120°F, which is ideal for normal climate conditions. It is recyclable, making it the best choice for cosmetics packaging.

PE plastic: PE plastic is another kind of plastic used for cosmetic packaging. Just like PET, PE is lightweight. The best thing is that ThreeBamboo uses PE plastic for making cosmetic packaging.

HDPE: Hi-density Polyethylene is the most commonly used plastic. There are many factors backing it, such as high-temperature resistance (-100ºF to 120ºF), recyclable, chemical resistance and moisture resistance.

8. What is the structure of the cosmetic tube?

The structure of the cosmetic tube is pretty simple to understand. The tubes are made of three layers, namely PE plastic, EVOH, and PE plastic. The use of PE plastic is on the outermost and the innermost layer because it is not reactive and can prevent any type of damage to the beauty product.

The layer in between named EVOH is primarily used to protect the product from any type of atmospheric damage. For example, if there is some sort of cream or moisturiser in the tube, it will have longer shelf life due to the presence of an EVOH layer in the packaging of the tube. All three layers are attached together with the help of an adhesive layer.

9. What is PE plastic?

PE stands for Polyethylene and is one of the most commonly used plastic for making cosmetic tubes. It is of various types, namely LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE and others. Some key aspects of PE plastic are:

  • Excellent chemical resistance makes it best for storing beauty products.
  • Economical and lightweight
  • Great impact resistance

18. What kind of decorations can you add to the cosmetic tube?

At ThreeBamboo, we are not just limited to making standard cosmetic tubes wholesale. Just like many of our other products, we offer various customisations. Here are some of the benefits that you can leverage:

  • Offset printing: This is one of the basic methods of decorating a cosmetic tube. Offset printing is primarily used for printing logos and other graphical designs like cartoons, characters or patterns in various colour schemes.
  • Silkscreen printing: Silkscreen printing is another cool way to decorate the cosmetic tube with various graphic elements. However, one drawback of this is that it is expensive for small orders and cannot be used for gradient printing. It is super glossy and adds a flair to the overall design of the tube.
  • Hot stamping: Hot stamping is one of the best methods of decorating the cosmetic tube. It is easy, reliable, economical and pretty popular, though it was introduced in 1970. The method has various steps such as corona discharge on tubes, UV printing, UV drying, etc. It can be used for printing on various cosmetic products such as mascara, lip glosses, foundations, creams, lipsticks, and compact powders.
  • Matte Surface: This is a cool type of decoration where the tube has a frosted surface. The best thing about the matte surface is that it is free from any type of scratches or fingerprints.
  • Gradually varied: This type of tube decoration is not of the same colour all along the tube. The aspect of slightly varying colour across the tube surface makes it a bit unique and attractive.
  • Light Surface: The light colour surface of the cosmetic tube is also one of the best types of decorations. It is primarily used for products like creams and moisturisers.

Other than these, there is labelling and many other decoration techniques that ThreeBamboo undertakes. You can get in touch with us to know more about them.
