No longer is packaging a visual marketing tool to get people to buy personal care products, but customers are now demanding that it be as convenient as possible.
The convenience packaging trend has been apparent in many different industries, and the personal care industry is leading the way with new innovations.
Because convenience for customers is now one of the key considerations for any packaging manufacturer, here are some examples of how it’s being prioritized in personal care packaging.
Packaging for easier product application
In research from Mintel, 85% of respondents say that they would rather buy personal care items that came in a pump dispenser because it’s easier to dispense products than other formats.
Not only are pump products more hygienic — as you don’t have to dip your fingers into the product, and you can get airless options that keep the formula germ-free — but it also makes application of the product much easier for customers, and results in less mess.
Companies have also started to make application even easier through innovative packaging concepts that combine the product with the application tool
For example, individual Q-tips that contain makeup remover for quick makeup touch-ups. Also, cleansers that have a built-in brush head to massage the product into the skin and cleanse the face.
Everyone’s lives are getting busier and busier, so personal care brands are starting to introduce products that customers can easily fit in their bags and use on-the-go.
This includes packaging designs that include a mirror for on-the-go touch ups, and hair serums in a mascara-type tube so users can quickly brush on their hair product to tame flyaways and get shiny hair wherever they are.
Multi-use products are a common occurrence in the personal care industry, but we’re now seeing brands combine two different products in one packaging concept.
Some packaging designs now contain dual chambers, so in one product customers have two different formulas that fulfil two very different needs.
Most of these designs include two products in their own compartments that are kept totally separate when inside the packaging.
When the pump is pushed down, both products are dispensed through individual internal tubes that combine at the nozzle to be dispensed in one pump.
This innovative method of allowing two products to be applied at once allows for convenient and mess-free application — while also minimizing space in the customer’s shelf space.

How to create packaging that reflects your important brand
Your brand is your bread and butter as a cosmetics or skincare manufacturer. And the product itself is only part of that brand.

Standing out from the competition is often what makes or breaks even the best product.

Natural vs. sanitary - How COVID-19 has changed the way we think about our products
Over the past few years, we have seen a growing trend in sustainability and environmentally clean products. Many environmentally-conscious nonprofits had announced significant steps toward more sustainability and transparency in the beauty and personal care industry bringing large industry players on board.
How does your packaging convey your brand online?
Since the inception of e-commerce in the early 1990s, not only has online shopping grown exponentially but, especially during the COVID-19 shutdown, it has been the only way that your customer could get your product with brick and mortar shopping virtually at a halt. And as we see retail morphing in real time and many traditional retailers going away, online presence is more important than ever.
