The Importance of Hygienic Skincare Packaging

The Importance of Hygienic Skincare Packaging

Skincare and makeup products are hygienically sealed before we purchase them so that the product stays fresh on the shelves. However, most of this packaging does little to keep contaminants out once they are opened.

Hygienic packaging helps to preserve the integrity of the product and ensure that it remains safe and effective for use. For products like Oxygenetix that do not include occlusive preservatives, it is especially important to have packaging that protects the product. Hygienic packaging helps keep bacteria off the face and each application clean. This also helps if you have sensitive or acne prone skin!

One popular form of hygienic packaging is the airless pump bottle, which works by using a vacuum system to dispense the product without exposing it to the outside environment. All Oxygenetix bottles utilize an airless pump system to protect the product from first to last use. 

One of the main benefits of airless pump bottles is that they can help to extend the shelf life of skincare products. When a product is exposed to the outside environment, it can become contaminated with bacteria, dirt, and other external sources. This can not only reduce the effectiveness of the product, but also make it unsafe for use. With an airless pump bottle, the product is protected from these external sources and can maintain its potency for a longer period of time.

Another advantage of airless pump bottles is that they help to prevent the degradation of ingredients due to exposure to air and light. Skincare products often contain ingredients that can be sensitive to these environmental factors, which can cause them to lose their effectiveness over time. By using an airless pump bottle, the product is protected from these environmental factors and can maintain its effectiveness for a longer period of time.

In addition, airless pump bottles also limit the risk of cross-contamination between users. With traditional packaging, it's easy for bacteria and dirt to transfer from one user to another. With an airless pump bottle, the product is dispensed directly from the container and is not exposed to external sources, which helps to prevent cross-contamination. Makeup artists and doctors favor this feature for being able to use the same Oxygenetix foundation bottle with multiple clients.

In conclusion, airless pump bottles are an effective form of hygienic packaging for skincare products. They help to preserve the integrity of the product by protecting it from external sources, preventing the degradation of ingredients, and reducing the risk of cross-contamination.

For products in airless pump bottles, it is crucial you never open the bottle. Exposing the product to air will oxidize the formula and shorten its lifespan.

Oxygenetix products have an airless pump, keeping the product extremely sanitary. DO NOT OPEN the bottle if the product doesn't come out easily. Prime the pump by placing your finger on the tip of the bottle while pumping continuously until you feel the product coming up. If all else fails, poke a safety pin into the tiny hole at the bottom of the bottle. This will push up the inside base to where it should be for the product to come out.
