Have you choosed the correct packaging for Argan Oil?
Argan oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree that is endemic to Morocco. In Morocco, argan oil is used to dip bread in at breakfast or to drizzle on couscous or pasta. World-wide, it is gaining a reputation both as an ingredient in high-end, personal-care products and as a heart-healthy gourmet product.
Moroccans traditionally use unroasted argan oil to treat skin diseases, and as a Cosmetic Oil for skin and hair:
"In cosmetics, argan oil is advocated as moisturizing oil, against Juvenile acne and flaking of the skin as well as for nourishing the hair. This oil has also medicinal uses against rheumatism and the healing of burns. Externally, argan oil is used for hair as brilliantine, to fortify and in the treatment of wrinkled or scaly dry skin.”
Argan oil has become increasingly popular for cosmetic use. The number of personal-care products on the US market with argan oil as an ingredient increased from just two in 2007 to over one hundred by 2011. It is sometimes mixed with pomegranate seed oil due to its antioxidizing benefits, with vendors promoting this blend as an all-in-one serum both for skin and hair. Argan oil is also sold without additives as a natural skincare and hair care product.
The increasing popularity of argan oil has prompted the Moroccan government to plan for increased production, with their aim being to increase annual production from approximately 2,500 to 4,000 tonnes by 2020.
One of the key you must choose the correct packaging for your argan oil. Besides the packaging should be elegant and resist damage during shipping and storage, you also think about packaging to block light, gas, or moisture permeation, as these may adversely affect your product.
We have ever received the client complain about packaging bad quality because the packaging is leakage oil. The client is so angary to us, we also feel very pity about it! We have requested the client repeatedly to send the formula to us, and we have used the new qualified packaging bottles to contain this formula for testing after receiving the client’s formula. Finally we have found that not packaging is bad, but Argan oil destroy or penetrate the packaging!!! Especially don’t use airless bottles to contain oil because oil’s molecular is smaller than Polyethylene (It is used airless bottle’s piston material)
As we have learned the experience, it is the better solution to choose glass or thicked-wall PET packaging to contain Argan oil or containing Argan oil ingredient products. And hope more experts put forward more and more effective professional suggest!
