Cosmetic Squeeze Tube

The Categories of Cosmetic Squeeze Tubes

Cosmetic marketing and manufacturing companies seek high quality products to grow their marketing presences. Here are the basic options for packaging cosmetic squeeze tubes.

What Are The Categories of Cosmetic Squeeze Tubes

A variety of hand creams, shampoos, oral care products, adhesives, cosmetic products and many more are perfect for packaging in squeeze tubes. Below are the common categories of plastic squeeze tubes.

Category 1: Extruded Cosmetic Plastic Squeeze Tubes

Extruded cosmetic plastic squeeze tubes are formed as one-piece cylinders during the manufacturing process. The cylinders are cut to length and the head / neck attached. This results in a beautiful, seamless product that is ideal for hand creams, shampoos, cosmetic and oral care products.

Frequently used in the filling of:

  • Premium cosmetic and beauty products
  • Designer lotions
  • Shave balms
  • Pharmaceutical ointments
  • Liposomal products
  • Silicone-based products
  • Industrial materials
  • Chemicals with specific stability requirements

Category 2: Laminated Cosmetic Squeeze Tubes

Laminated cosmetic squeeze tubes start as a 5-layer, flat sheet of laminated plastic and / or aluminum. The laminate is printed then rolled and sealed on the side to form a tube. The cylinder is then joined to the tube neck.

Laminated cosmetic tubes have excellent barrier properties and can be printed in up to 6 colors + aqueous. They can also be finished with hot foil stamping and silk screening.

In addition to cosmetics, applications for laminated squeeze tubes also include:

  • Cosmetic
  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Body care products
  • Oral care products

Category 3: Collapsible Aluminum Cosmetic Squeeze Tubes

Aluminum cosmetic squeeze tubes are formed by an impact hammer extrusion process using 99.9% pure aluminum. Adhesives, pharmaceuticals, hair products, cosmetics, paints, metal polish, and others are perfect for use in aluminum squeeze tubes.

  1. I want to fill my own tubes. How do I do that?

  2. Hi Lora,

    Most people purchase inexpensive filling and sealing equipment or use a funnel such as at fastfunnel.com. With practice a bag impulse sealer can be used.
    Please let us know if you need additional information.

    Thanks,

    Matt Zagoren
