Even with the growth of alternatives such as PET and plastic, glass still remains the leading material for cosmetics packaging, with its combination of weight and rich appearance giving it a unique appeal to consumers.
Dr Benjamin Punchard, the Global Packaging Insights Director for Mintel, commented: "For luxury beauty products there can be only one material: Glass. Not only does glass give the weight and clarity that speak of being luxury, it is also the perfect inert container. With many beauty products increasingly turning to functional ingredients glass can communicate to consumers that the precious contents are being well protected."
Together with Mintel, we have put together a gallery of exceptional recently released luxury packaging from Asia. Read on to flick through some of the most innovative new glass products from this region.
